Willian signs 3-year deal with Arsenal



Brazil international Willian has signed a three-year deal to join Arsenal ahead of the 2020/21 season.

The 32-year-old forward has made more than 600 club appearances in a career spanning 13 seasons.

Willian started at Brazilian side Corinthians, before joining Shakhtar Donetsk in August 2007. 

“I believe he’s a player that can really make a difference for us," Mikel Arteta said. 

"We have been monitoring him for the past few months, we had a clear intention to strengthen in the attacking midfielder and the winger positions and he is a player that gives us a lot of versatility, he can play in three or four different positions. 

He has the experience of everything in the football world but to still have the ambition to come here and contribute to bring the club where it belongs. I have been really impressed with all the talks I have had with him and how much he wanted to come.”
