How Willian’s move depends on Arsenal offloading this flop

Arsenal will have to get rid of Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer before they will be able to land Willian from Chelsea.

The Gunners have been chasing the Brazilian, who will leave Chelsea for free, after refusing to sign a two-year deal with them.

The Gunners have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign him after they agreed to meet his contract length demands.

Mikel Arteta will be keen to reshape his team as the transfer window has reopened now, and the Spaniard knows that Willian’s experience will be immense for his team.

However, the Gunners will have to get rid of the Armenian who spent this season on loan at AS Roma.

The Italians want to keep him permanently and reports claim that an agreement is already in place between both teams for him to spend another season at the Italian side.

Sun Sports claims that Willian wants £130,000 a week, and Arteta’s team is prepared to pay him that.

However, they will need to get rid of Mkhitaryan’s £180,000 a week wage from their books first before they can land the Brazilian.

Willian will not just bring experience to the Emirates, he will also bring a winning mindset after winning two Premier League titles among other trophies at Stamford Bridge.

    We should call Mkhitaryan back to send a massage to Roma if you want him you have to buy him and his cheap and also I heard his wiling to take a huge wage reduction so what’s the problem Roma ?

    We cannot miss out on a chance to sigh Willian his an amazing player when his on the ball you never know what he will do really difficult man to mark

    Either he is sold or nothing… another club may take a chance on him. Get £8-£10m and use his 180k wage to pay for Willians 150k weekly wage. Save 30k aweek but use that to add to Aubas new deal.

    Selling Mkhitaryan in order to buy Willian doesn’t make any difference. They are on the same level. Its not an upgrade

      I honestly dont know what to even say if you actually believe it. With the amount of negative Willian post you have made over the past couple days you sound like a troll.

    Selling Mhiki would be the best idea to bring in Willian and cover for his wages. Willian is an exceptionally amazing player and no wonder Lampard is not pleased with the fact that he is leaving Chelsea. AFC should sign him at all costs.

    Willian it’s a lot better than miki, id have him over miki any day of the week, give his £130 k a week get rid of miki on the cheap and save yourself £50k, no brainier
