According to multiple sources, Willian has reached an agreement with Corinthians and is not set to join the Brazilian side as a free agent, with Arsenal more than happy to cut him loose without compensation two years before his contract would have expired.

The experienced winger arrived to the Emirates from Chelsea last year as a player of notable pedigree and a reputation of a proven winner. He had won the Premier League title twice at Stamford Bridge, along with one FA Cup and one League Cup. He was also named Chelse’s Player of the Year twice, in 2015-16 and 2017-18. Overall, he had spent seven years there, scoring 63 goals along with 62 assists in 339 games in all competitions.

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fiorentina about the proposed transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to multiple sources.

The 25-year-old joined the Gunners in 2018 from Sampdoria, and though he did play an important role in the team under Unai Emery, he never had a proper place in the plans of Mikel Arteta, even though his contract at the Emirates has two years left to run. He spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, and it seems another temporary move is now very close.

Arsenal scouts had nothing but words of praise for the high-profile youngster who has turned plenty of heads with his impressive performances of late.

Various reports are suggesting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lost patience with injured forwards Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott, and is looking for a new centre-forward to compete directly with Olivier Giroud for a starting place in the second-half of the season. Arsenal have suffered an injury crisis this season, and it’s highlighted how little strength in depth they have in attack when key members are on the treatment table, which could turn Wenger’s hand to bolster their strikeforce.

Is Alexandre Pato set for Arsenal? 1

The Sunday Express is claiming that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could be planning a £10million swoop for Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato. The former-AC Milan star returned to his homeland in January after enjoying rather mixed fortunes in Serie A with the Rossoneri.


Wenger’s hunt for support for French striker Olivier Giroud, who is now 14/1 to win the Premier League’s golden boot, has now widen to South America. Pato is a completely different player to some of the other players linked with a January move to the Emirates though.
