Potential Arsenal boost as wantaway midfielder closes in on a move to Italy

Willian is set to join AC Milan this summer, despite recent reports that he is willing to tear up his Arsenal contract to seal a move back to Brazil.

The forward joined the club from Chelsea on a free transfer 12 months ago, signing a three-year deal in the process, but has failed to have the desired impact in North London.

After just one year, he now appears to be strongly seeking an exit, and appears out of the manager’s plans also, leaving the respected parties to find the right move for all parties.

AC Milan could well be just that however, with claims in The Sun(via TBR) that they are willing to pay £7 Million for his services.

This could see the Brazilian team up with former team-mates Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud at the San Siro where they will be hoping they can go one better in the league having finished as runners-up last term.

Sky Sports reported this week that Willian was willing to quit Arsenal without asking for a severance package in order to seal a move to Corinthians, but a better offer could well have been found.

      what do you mean by complete flop/just because he didnt score goals,are you are football analyst?aside his assists,did you check other goals he contributed to in the build up?fact is he came at the time your team was totally disjointed,with a new coach with a new philosophy all were struggling under.how did your seasoned star who have been in ARSENAL LONG BEFORE willian came fared?Was your defence and midfield not shambolic to say the least when he was signed?Had it not been the penalties,check the number of goals even Aubamayang would have scored the whole season?.Thank ARTETA FOR SIGNING Partey and Odegaarde.They helped players like Smith Rowe to enjoy player rotation and a stronger midfield thereby enabling them to play freely ithout so much taking added responsibility as wILLIAN EXPERIENCED IN THE EARLY PART OF THE 20-21 SEASON

      Willian came when Ateeta didnt even know his 1st team,with no chemistry and team cohesion.discipline issues with players often taking red cards thereby weakening the team all over.When Pepe took red card in the first half ,did Arteta and Willian had the luxury of player rotation as in the 2nd season?did you know Arteeta played him at differents position early on?Remember we also had a young and inexperienced team .Arteeta had to rotate the Smith Rowes, Nelsons, and Willock to play the Europa till we had the re-inforcement in Party ,Ordegaade etc.With the non- inclusion of these much amaligned Brazillian players Luiz & Willian how are you faring this season.in conclusion if you didnt know Willian playing on the wings or in no 10 position was also conscious of his defenceive duties in supporting the wing backs, ie how come we were never scored 5-0

      Arteta really is on a streak. All that’s left is to get relegated and he’s collected all the negative records for Arsenal. I guess he could become one of the most impactful managers at Arsenal.

      Before he does, uncle kranky, please set Dobby free, give him the sock.
