Arsenal have in the last few days been linked with a move for Chelsea winger Willian who will be a free agent in July after failing to reach an agreement over a new deal with The Blues. Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has spoken out on the chances of the gunners getting Willian in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Willian has been at Chelsea for seven years now and he has been impressive for them this season even though their fans were calling for his sale at the start of the season. Chelsea wanted to offer him a new deal but he however refused to sign the one presented to him because they were some terms that he wasn’t happy with.
Willian has come out and said that he expects to leave Chelsea this summer and they have been reports that Arsenal have already begun making a move for him with one claiming that David Luiz had begun trying to convince his former teammate to also come to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal legend Martin Keown has however come out and said that he doesn’t believe that the gunners will get Willian because he thinks that the Brazilian international will be going to a Spanish LA Liga side.
“I don’t see him going to Arsenal. I think he’s aiming for Barcelona or Real Madrid.” Martin Keown said on talkSPORT.
“He’s an incredible talent. Chelsea will be weaker if he goes but Frank Lampard knows what he’s doing. I’m sure he wants to keep him.”
Arsenal will try to be smart in the upcoming summer transfer window and so it’s believed that they will try to sign free agents due to having a tight budget and most reports are saying that they are targeting Chelsea’s Willian but their legend Martin Keown doesn’t believe that they will get him.
