Our good friend LB brought up some key questions regarding our signing of Willian
First and foremost, are we happy to have signed Willian? His EPL experience, his statistics, injury record and the fact that he lives in London and was a free agent do seem to tick a lot of positive boxes.
However, his signing also seems to trigger some doubts. Was his signing necessary given the fact that Pepe seemed to have found his feet (at last) and that RN seemed to demonstrate good promise? Will Arteta play Willian on the right or in the middle (as part of a midfield trio with Xhaka and Ceba) or on the left? It is hard to tell but Willian is a versatile player that has, however, made his name as a right winger so let us see…
Lastly and although he seems to be physically reliable, was it a wise move to sign him on for 3 years given the fact that he is 32?
So, have your say about Willian:
- Are you happy with his arrival?
- In which position will Arteta play him?
- Was a 3-years contract a good move?
Thanks to LB for initiating the discussion
