Willian has told his new Arsenal team-mates he’s arrived to win trophies.
The Brazilian completed a free transfer to Arsenal on Friday, penning a three-year deal worth around £100,000-a-week.
At 32, the former Chelsea forward is approaching the twilight years of his career in football, but Willian is hungry for further success.
He is confident he can help the Gunners become more competitive in the Premier League, and has his eye on winning more silverware.
“I decided [to join] because Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have a new project with Mikel Arteta,” said Willian.
