Willian close to leaving Arsenal on a free after miserable year

Willian close to leaving Arsenal

Since the Premier League season commenced, Arsenal fans have had little to be cheerful about.

A two-nil opening day defeat against newly promoted Brentford was followed by another defeat against European champions Chelsea, with the same scoreline.

But the Gunners activity on the transfer front have made some club’s faithful a tad more excited. And what is a better feeling than the reports emerging that Willian is close to leaving Arsenal?

After an extremely underwhelming campaign in North London, what the Arsenal supporters truly wanted was to see the back of the former Chelsea man. As soon as possible.

Although the deal is far from completion, the way the things are accelerating, Willian will no longer be an Arsenal player in a weeks’ time.

Brazilian club Corinthians are seriously interested in the prospect of landing the 33-year-old, who still has two years left on his current deal.

Willian is still giving priority of playing in Europe rather than his home country. And that would certainly make some section of Arsenal fans chuckle.

What they have seen in the past one year is a player unwilling to put a foot in or make a serious effort for the team. Thus, it would be really surprising for them to imagine Willian playing and flourishing in one of the top 5 leagues in Europe.

At the moment, the priority of Arsenal seems to be moving on players and reducing an already bloated squad. Apart from Willian, Sead Kolasinac and Lucas Torreira also look close to departing the Emirates Stadium.

And if the club manages to offload further players, it won’t be surprising if they can strengthen their squad with a few more arrivals.

That will be warmly welcomed by the supporters, who have started bracing themselves for a long season ahead.

    Nketiah could possibly move to Palace.

    That’s a step in the right direction

    Hopefully Bellerin kola Nketia will soon follow and Laccazet situation is resolved

      Good , one of the errors corrected. Please is there any way to bring back Emiliano Martinez? because that was the greatest mistake of the century

    Wonder if that “free” includes a cheque with a 7/8 digit figure made out in the name of Willian by our management!!!

      VasC, this is what makes me laugh about MA and Edu clearing out the “deadwood”.

      Anyone with half a brain could give players away for nothing… even though they awarded them staggering contracts and especially if it’s not their money.

      I cannot think of one other club that that that conducts such incredible business and this give away started with both MA and Edu.

        Dear Mr ken1945,

        I must content myself with posting “COYG!!!” or “Trust the process!!!”.

        Anything else, my lack of consideration of the turmoil, the COVID outbreak, the injuries surrounding our club will be questioned.

      I don’t know how much he earns but Wilian will surely get one year’s salary pay off since he has 2 years left.

    Sensible article Yash.

    Speaking entirely personally, though I know many will agree with me, I have NEVER been able to abide any lazy player ever, who I see as cheating our club, themselves, their own talent, their teammates , their manager and above all WE FANS.

    WILLIAN HAS BEEN, IN MY VIEW, AS BIG A CHEAT AND FRAUD IN OUR SHIRT AS WAS OZIL.

    The thrilling thought of getting this disastrously stupid “purchase”, albeit on a free,* GONE for good from our club is almost orgasmic. (*Some free, that cost us his huge wage for NO return whatsoever!!)

    I never want any more of his type at our club EVER AGAIN!!

    1. ken1945 says:

      Jon, it seems that any player you dislike and for whatever reason, are cheats etc etc

      If a player was “cheating” the club and his fellow team mates, wouldn’t you think that said group would make it known?

      As you are not privy to the training sessions, the instructions from the manager to his players, or even the players thoughts themselves, your character assassination of the players you mention /don’t like, goes way too far…. in my opinion.

      1. jon fox says:

        SO UTTERLY WRONG KEN! AS I have repeatedly posted over many years now, I LOATHE ONLY LAZY, IDLE, NON TRYING, PLAYERS !

        In that camp fall such as Walcott, Ozil, Mkhi and latterly Willian and Auba. You are deliberately misrepresenting what I HAVE repeatedly made clear and why, over those many years.

        Tell the truth please about what I WRITE AND DO NOT AGAIN MISREPRESENT MY VIEWS, AS THAT IS A DISHONEST TACTIC!

        1. ken1945 says:

          Jon. how many players who, while representing the club, have you called :
          LAZY
          DROSS
          MENTALLY FRAIL
          INCOMPETENT
          DROSS
          MONEY GRABBERS
          USELESS
          CHEATS
          THIEVES
          ETC ETC ETC

          They are not confined to the ones you name in your post and, as an example, you called out Mertesaker for being weak, when he said he was physically sick before every match.
          Didn’t you say he needs to get a grip, earn his money and stop whinging?

          I assume the fact that the players you have called out down the years have, in fact, been very successful as professional footballers and have the international caps, silverware and Bank balances to prove it, mean nothing when blackening them?
          Easy to discriminate against someone, when you know they will not answer back.

          Unless, of course, the list of words above, were used out of context, I didn’t read them and you never wrote them???

      Get ready to be sued by Willian Jon! As you have written in print that he is lazy without any factual evidence whatsoever, his lawyer might be about to talk to you any moment, lol.

      1. Sid says:

        Also saying he is a cheat and a fraud. And you add Ozil as well? Double whammy my friend!😂😂

      2. jon fox says:

        Nonsense Sid! I could very easily prove in a court of law that Willian and OZIL ARE NON TRYERS.

        VIDEO EVIDENCE BY THE BUCKET LOAD WOULD BE AMPLE EVIDENCE IN LAW.

        1. ken1945 says:

          Jon, they would just show the court their medals, international caps and top clubs they have played for…. Oh and the videos showing them doing just that!!!

    Personal I feel its a good move for Willan since it will make a way for other players like this young man Camavinga who can play a very pivotal role in the midfield. He is like any exceptional midfielder, the ability to pass to an exceptional standard is paramount at the highest level.He is very strong and he have potential to be one of the best young players if he join Arsenal. According to reports, Camavinga ticks the box on that level with his passing accuracy 89 per cent in Ligue 1 last season, therefore we have to consider this young man.

  7. Sid says:

    A bad deal now just being brushed under the carpet as a good business to give a player away for- FREE! So sad that Willian wont be available for the CL winning parade next season which I believe will happen because of his and MA’s prophecy,😂😂😂
    On serious thoughts- If Willian goes, then look at Reiss or try to fast-track Omari Hutchinson to replace him.
