Willian will start to feel who we are and it will help Gabriel Martinelli. Having two experienced compatriots is a mutual benefit. “
“Obviously, there are people talking about Willian’s age and where he’s from, but you just have to listen to Mikel (Arteta) and know how he talks about a player like Willian. It’s short term, but when you look at where we are now, our limitations financial in terms of the money we have or do not have, I think it is a wonderful signing, “he said.
