Arsenal fans react as Willian reportedly requests to leave club after one season
Arsenal fans have taken to social media following news that Willian is reportedly open to leaving the club after just one season with the north London side.
The Atheltic report that the former Chelsea winger wants to leave Arsenal just 12 months after making the cross-city switch, with the 32-year-old attacker failing to impress under Mikel Arteta as Willian has managed just one goal for the Gunners since signing for the club.
As per the report, as many as five first-team players could leave Arsenal this summer, with the Guardian also reporting that Mikel Arteta is plotting a big squad overhaul the Gunners have not experience in years, and for supporters on social media, the news of Willian potentially leaving was music to their ears.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say on Twitter following the report that Willian could already be out the exit door…
Sensational, that's great news. Unfortunately the people upstairs are too incompetent to replace them with better players https://t.co/5fQVPUzFNk

Willian joined Arsenal for free last summer but has failed to live up to expectations with the club, with the attacker managing just one goal in all competitions and being heavily criticised by both supporters and pundits during his time in north London.
