Brazilian winger undergoes Arsenal medical

Willian on the verge of Arsenal transfer

Willian has reportedly undergone a medical with Arsenal ahead of his free transfer to the club.

The 32-year-old confirmed his departure from Chelsea earlier this week and he is now on the cusp of signing a three-year deal with the Gunners.

According to Evening Standard, the Brazilian has successfully undergone his medical with the Gunners and will be presented by the club later this week.

The winger is due to sign a three-year contract on wages worth £100,000-a-week and reports claim that there is the option for another 12 months.

Willian may be the first of several signings for Mikel Arteta, who is planning a major overhaul of the squad ahead of the forthcoming campaign.

Aside from Granit Xhaka, the Gunners could have a new look midfield for next season with Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi set for exits.

It is also unclear whether the club will retain the services of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid on a temporary basis next term.
