Former Chelsea winger, Willian has terminated his contract with Arsenal in a bid to force a move back to Corinthians which appears almost done.
Willian, who joined the Gunners on a free after leaving London rivals Chelsea made this announcement on Monday night.
Africa Today News, New York gathered that the 33-year-old Brazilian international made 37 appearances in all competitions during the 2020-21 season, scoring just one goal from 27 shots.
However, Willian only made four Premier League starts after the turn of the year as Mikel Arteta went with alternative options in his team.
After what the club described as “positive and constructive” discussions between all parties, Willian agreed to terminate a contract that was due to run until 2023.
‘Everyone at Arsenal wishes Willian and his family well for the future,’ Arsenal said in a statement, adding he was heading for a ‘new opportunity’ with Corinthians, the club where he started his professional career.
