Donetsk playmaker remains on Arsenal radar - reports

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are being linked with a summer move for Brazilian playmaker Willian.

The Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in recent months, with the Daily Mail claiming in May that the Gunners were considering the player as a potential Samir Nasri replacement.

Whilst Arsene Wenger claimed earlier in the week that he's confident of keeping Nasri out of Manchester United's clutches, the Gunners are still thought to be monitoring the 22-year-old over a potential summer switch to the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that transfer activity is in the offing at the club this summer, with an attacking midfielder thought to be high on the agenda alongside a goalkeeper and defender at Arsenal.

The Islington Gazette claims Willian could be available for as little as £5 million, with the former Corinthians starlet seen as a potential replacement for Denilson, who is tipped to leave Arsenal for Sevilla this summer.


Arsenal scouts have previously highlighted the versatile samba star as a realistic transfer possibility, and given Willian only has one-year left on his current deal in the Ukraine, an opportunity has arisen for Wenger to bring the player to the Barclays Premier League.
