Good signing for Arsenal?

Willian is one of the best attack-minded players in the Premier League, and Arsenal are reportedly about to make a very good signing.

True, the Brazilian is 32 years of age, but he would be able to make an immediate impact on the team and would enhance their chances of finishing in the Champions League places next season.

According to WhoScored, Willian scored nine goals and provided seven assists in 29 Premier League starts, and scored one goal and provided one assist in six Champions League starts for Chelsea this past season.
