Brazilian side Corinthians want Willian.
The 33-year od joined Arsenal from Chelsea on a free transfer last summer, signing a three year deal, but the move has not worked out for either party.
He has contributed little on the pitch, scoring just one goal, whilst his inclusion in the playing squad has robbed younger players of minutes that they might have got.
And his liking at the weekend of a social media post about Chelsea’s win at the Emirates indicates that he has never really switched his allegiance.
The Gunners may have to facilitate the deal by paying him most of what he is owed, and any transfer fee they can expect will be minimal at best.
However, it will get his wages off the books and help draw a line under what has been one of the club’s biggest transfer mistakes – and there have been a few – in recent years.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
