Arsenal to make Willian offer

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has revealed that Arsenal are set to make a formal offer for Chelsea star Willian.

The Brazilian winger is out of contract this summer and is yet to come to an agreement over a new deal with the Blues.

He is keen for a three-year contract and, speaking on his podcast with Mark Chapman, Ornstein revealed that the Gunners were set to offer him one.

He said: “With Arsenal, we’re led to believe a formal offer will be coming imminently of a three-year contract. Willian is most inclined to take that. He hasn’t made a final decision yet but that’s his preference.

“It isn’t because of the money, because Arsenal are not making the biggest financial offer. What’s appealing about Arsenal to Willian is Mikel Arteta and Edu, who he knows from the Brazilian national team.

“Arteta wants to sign Willian and he’s asked for him to be signed. Willian has been on Arsenal’s target list for some time. This is now being led by Arteta.

“He sees Willian as an ideal signing. He brings experience, he can help the young players and he can bring a winning mentality to the club.

“He’s also a free transfer. The offer from Arsenal is not as lucrative as he could have got elsewhere.

“It’s unlikely he’ll play in Chelsea’s Champions League tie against Bayern Munich. This could develop quickly.”
