Last week, it’s been revealed David Luiz will leave the Gunners as his contract expires this summer. The 34-year-old has been linked with a free transfer to David Beckham's Inter Miami, and now it’s been reported that Willian might also follow his path.
According to Sky Sports journalist,Fabrizio Romano
, Willian is expected to leave Arsenal this summer as the Gunners are waiting for official bids.
The Brazilian winger joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Chelsea last summer and signed a reported £200,000 a week deal with the Gunners.
In his debut season, Willian has struggled with loads of criticism as he failed to live up to expectations in his debut season, registering only 1 goal and 5 assists in his 25 Premier League appearances for Arsenal.
The 32-year-old revealed his struggles in an interview withESPN Brazil
back in March.
“It really was a very difficult start, apart from that first game against Fulham, where I had a good performance [setting up two of the three goals in a 3-0 win], I managed to make a good game,” Willian said.
“Even after that game there were some games that we won, I even had a good game, but then we ended up getting a bad streak.
“I also got a bad streak and I think my worst professional time to date, since I went up at Corinthians and was sold to Ukraine, then I arrived at Chelsea, without a doubt.”
According to Romano, apart from Inter Miami, several European clubs are also interested in securing the Brazilian's services for the next season.
