Willian reveals why he joined Arsenal from Chelsea

Arsenal’s new signing, Willian, has said that he came to Emirates to help in every position after completing his transfer move to the Gunners on Friday.

DAILY POST had earlier reported that Willian officially joined Arsenal from Chelsea on Friday.

The Brazilian signed a three-year deal with the North London club, having left Chelsea as a free agent last week.

Reacting, Willian, 32, said he can’t wait to go on the pitch and help the club shine again, adding that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, had said a lot of good things about him.

“[I like] the way they play, everything is amazing – the stadium, and I think that with Arteta, Arsenal have a great opportunity to fight again for titles in the Premier League and in Europe so I am very happy because of that,” Willian told Arenal Digital.

“I am excited to start. I cannot wait to go on the pitch and do my thing to help my team-mates and to help this club to shine again. That is what I want.

“When I talked to Arteta, the conversation was good. He gave me the confidence to come to Arsenal. He said a lot of good things for me, and that is why I have come to Arsenal.”

He added: “I come to help in every position.

“I can play on the right. I can play in the middle and I can play on the left side as well. So I want to help the team in any position where they put me to play. I will try to do my best.”
