Willian spent seven years at Chelsea, where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and the Europa League. He made 339 appearances, with 63 goals and 56 assists in that time.

The Brazilian has now moved to Chelsea rivals, Arsenal, as a free transfer signing, and the 32-year-old will team up with his new side next season, after failing to sign a new contract with Chelsea.

Interestingly, Willian has revealed that he has gone to Arsenal to help them win trophies.

“I’m very excited to become an Arsenal player – I can’t wait to start training and playing with my team-mates,” Willian told Arsenal Digital.

“I decided [to join] because Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world. They have a new project with Mikel Arteta.

“I think this club deserves to shine again and I want to be a part of this project – to be a part of the Arsenal family is amazing. I’m very happy to do that.

“I come to try to win trophies, because this club deserves to win again, and I think you have to do the best as possible to win every game.

“I always train hard and go on the pitch giving 100 per cent to help this team to win games and to win titles as well.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
