Willian’s agent Kia Joorabchian has fired a brutal transfer shot at Arsenal after the winger completed a move to Corinthians. The 33-year-old endured a torrid time at the Emirates Stadium after joining from Chelsea last summer.
Willian opened his Premier League career with Arsenal with two assists as his side defeated Fulham on the opening day of last season.
But he struggled to find any real form and soon fell down the pecking order in north London, having to settle for a place on the bench in most of his side’s games after Christmas.
Willian didn’t appear for Arsenal in any games this season and his contract was terminated by mutual consent on Monday.
Speaking to talkSPORT on Tuesday, Joorabchian said: “Willian wasn’t the problem.
“He didn’t go for the money. He went for the project and the project wasn’t there. What player has gone to Arsenal recently and has not been a disaster?

“Willian doesn’t blame Arteta – we all want Mikel to do well.
“Even as fans, they may be disgruntled at the moment but any fan of any football club always wants the best.
“At the moment the project has not worked – it’s not about Willian.”
