We brought you the news last week that Willian was set to join Arsenal as the first step in their major summer business.

On joining the club, Willian spoke highly of Arsenal and boss Mikel Arteta.

“[I like] the way they play, everything is amazing – the stadium, and I think that with Arteta, Arsenal have a great opportunity to fight again for titles in the Premier League and in Europe so I’m very happy because of that,” Willian told Arenal Digital.

“I’m excited to start. I can’t wait to go on the pitch and do my thing to help my team-mates and to help this club to shine again. That’s what I want.

“When I talked to [Mikel], the conversation was good, he gave me confidence to come to Arsenal. He said a lot of good things to me and that’s why I have come to Arsenal.”

Willian (7.33) performed statistically better than any Arsenal player this season according to WhoScored (Pepe and Auba both just over 7.0). No Arsenal player created more key passes per game last season and only Pepe managed more dribbles. Willian would clearly add quality to the progressive nature of the Arsenal attacking midfield options. His brilliant work ethic would also be a welcome addition to the club, making him a good fit for Arteta.
