New Arsenal signing, Willian will be a magnificent signing for the club despite his age, Ian Wright has said.
Wright recently revealed that the signing is a good one because Arsenal needs more winners in the team.
According to him, there is a Brazilian connection at Arsenal and a player like Willian will definitely boost that bond at the club.
He added that even if he agrees that it is a short-term signing, it is still a magnificent one because of the calibre of player he is.
His words, “There’s that Brazilian connection and getting a player like Willian has got to be good for our young players because he’s a winner. The more winners we can get in there the better.
“David Luiz is a winner. I don’t care what anyone says, I will always come out and back David Luiz whatever happens because I know his heart is in the right place and he wants to do the right thing for our club. I think he will transfer that into Willian, and Willian will start feeling what we’re about.
“That’s only going to help Gabriel Martinelli, to have two experienced compatriots and Brazilian team-mates that he’s being involved with. I look at it from a playing point of view and it’s win-win for me.”
“Obviously there’s people talking about Willian’s age and where he’s come from, but you only need to listen to Mikel and how he speaks about a player like Willian.
“Of course, yes it is short-term but when you look at where we are at the moment, our financial restraints in respects of the money that we have or haven’t got, I think it’s a magnificent signing when you look at somebody of his calibre.
“I think at this stage of his career coming to Arsenal with the young players we’ve got, with the experience he brings got and the creative ability and the fact he can play in different positions and you’ve heard Mikel speak about it. I just feel that it’s a brilliant deal for us, where we are.”
