Willian transfer disaster a warning for Arteta as Arsenal prepare to step up overhaul

 The Brazilian has failed dismally to deliver since arriving on a free transfer from Chelsea last year and is now in talks over a move to Corinthians

There can be few transfers that have gone so spectacularly wrong as Willian’s move to Arsenal.

Billed as a no-risk free transfer when he arrived following his departure from Chelsea last summer, the experienced Brazilian was expected to play a key role in the Mikel Arteta revolution at Emirates Stadium.

There were reservations about the fact he had been handed a three-year deal, despite being 31, but most felt that he still had plenty to offer given he had arrived off the back of his best goalscoring season at Stamford Bridge.
