Arsenal and Tottenham’s hopes of signing Chelsea winger Willian seem to be increasing after it was reported the Brazilian has rejected the Blues’ offer of a new deal.
The winger has, according to The Guardian, turned down fresh terms at Stamford Bridge which would have seen him stay with the club until 2022.
It is becoming apparent that the 31-year-old is keen to cement a longer deal than that. A three-year contract, then, would seem the minimum any admiring club would need to offer the Chelsea man.
Both Spurs and Arsenal have been credited with an interest in the winger. However, news of his contract rejection has got Arsenal fans talking on Twitter, with plenty of Gunners having their say on the matter.
It seems, then, that Arsenal supporters can’t agree on if Willian should be signed or not. So, with that, here’s a look at what some Gunners supporters had to say as Willian rejects a new deal with Chelsea.
Doesn’t make sense from Arteta’s point of view. He wants a creative LW nd the club is giving him a dead RW. Edu Gaspar’s plan for our squad are really worrying. Signing Willian means zero groundwork for other players.

I don’t understand the Willian interest. Genuinely don’t know where he’d fit without blocking a better prospect’s progress.

If Arteta reaching out for Willian, i believe he surely has some plans. Also, he understands Arsenal more than any of us here. lets stay positive.

Personally could be Willian and Joelson, securing the immediate future and the long term
