Arsenal fans react to Romano tweet on Willian

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to social media to react to a tweet from Fabrizio Romano in which he claims Corinthians have made an offer for Willian.

Unsurprisingly, the news has gone down incredibly well amongst Arsenal supporters on social media.

They must have feared that Willian would be on the books right until his deal expired.

Several Arsenal fans are desperately hoping that Corinthians succeed where the MLS outfit failed.

With that in mind, here is how some of the supporters reacted to Romano’s tweets…
