Mikel Arteta and Arsenal believe they have added someone who can bring a winning mentality to their squad, as well as acting as a mentor for their younger players.
Arsenal have determined that he is not your typical player who typically start to drop off. They have taken a calculated gamble, hoping the benefit of the Brazilian’s ability and experience outweighs the detriment of his decline.
Arsenal have tried to sign Willian before.
Willian’s has long standing relationship with David Luiz.
When his contract ran out at the end of last season, Willian had offers from Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter Miami
It was Arsenal’s proposal that matched his preferences: the opportunity to remain in London, on a three-year deal.
Arteta has backed the Willian deal throughout, and is insistent his team requires an injection of such ready-made quality.
Alan Sugar’s a daft cunt.
