What position will you play Willian?

Looks increasingly likely he will sign for us.

For me he is a guaranteed starter. Technically excellent, quick and has that low centre of gravity.

He can play both flanks and in MF. What I like about Willian is that he hardly ever gives up possession. Fairly happy with him.

Where would you play him?

No. 1-why isn't he trying to build a young squad like Ole trying to do at Utd


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Youngest squad in the PL!! Next question? Moron!!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ours is 2nd.
24.7 compared to 25.1.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Maybe so but that idiot Tu Meke actually laughed when I suggested that Ole was building a young squad. However, my point is Arsenal should be building for the next 5 years and not the next 2!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He was laughing because we have a lot of young players.

Our average squad age is 25 - with a fair few over 30s in it. How is that not building for 5 years?
Experience is definitely not a bad thing when you are bringing through 8 or 9 players under 23.

You watch Arsenal more than I do, so you do know better than me i'll admit. But what happens to Pepe now. Aren't they similar position?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Willian would be on the left.
It is not a signing I am excited by, the links to Gabriel and Partey are far more what I want to see actually happening. And if Coutinho was really an option then him over Willian all day long.

However, with Saka and Martinelli still raw, and able to play in other roles, then I don't mind adding experience.

I reckon we'll use him as a no.10, we've got no other options there and he can play on the wings when we play 3 at the back. Saka is ready to be a starter next season so can't see us making such a big investment in Willian to play as a winger.

Didn’t Willian play mostly as an attacking mid in Russia?

Not sure but he was an AM on football manager He's technically sound enough to play there, not as creative as Ozil but it would be good to have a more dynamic player in the middle.

That's not why I laughed. I laughed because we have a lot of young players and because of your pretentiousness about your manager.

Good signing. Not the most creative but very good in possession, great at transitioning play from defence to attack, good work rate and pretty good at FKs.

Free kicks and pens. Don't think he has missed a pen for Chelsea

Except Ozil, who has always been a link up player so not suited to the tactics we use and you need a stronger defensive midfield behind him to get away with him and ESR is coming back into the squad.

Willian has to play LW. Saka can't carry a whole season of starts, he's still way too baby boy for his body to cope. Willian is too old to be starting every game. With Martinelli out 'til halway, there's plenty of game time to go around.

Besides that the LWB/LB position is Tierney's. No way should we drop him or play him at CB, to accomodate Willian playing LWB.

I thought the intention was for both?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Reports are it's one or the other

Weird that they'd go for Willian when he is older and not as good as coutinho
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He’d be a lot cheaper.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
A glaring oversight on my part
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Truly, you should know by now that when it comes to transfers we don't get/go for. The answer to the question why. Is always and always has been "Because the owner is a cheapskate."
