Lots of Arsenal fans have been talking about the latest transfer news linking them to Chelsea’s Willian after ESPN‘s Jorge Nicola (via The Sun) claimed the 31-year old’s representatives believe that the north London club are the most viable destination for the winger in the summer transfer window.
Nicola says that the Gunners are a little ahead, but everything is still open. Willian’s close relationship with David Luiz could also be a deciding factor in the attacker’s decision, and the Brazilian international has previously stated his desire to stay in London. FC Barcelona, Liverpool, Paris Saint Germain and Tottenham Hotspur have also been mentioned as potential suitors.
Willian has made 37 appearances in all competitions for the Blues this season, scoring seven goals and providing six assists, as per Transfermarkt.
These Gooners talked about the transfer link, with one AFC claiming that he would bench Nicolas Pepe and another claiming that Gabriel Martinelli is better:
Of course YES. He'll bench Pepe straight up. He's more effective going 4ward

He is in the wrong position we need !! Unless we need him to warm the bench ??

William is still a good player
Signing him will add quality to the squad and moreso players like Nelson, Niles, Smith and the rest will learn a lot from him.
Currently I still rate him above Pepe if I am to be honest.
