Fulham complete Willian transfer

September 1, 2022

Former Chelsea and Arsenal star Willian has joined Fulham. The 34-year-old was a free agent after leaving Brazilian side Corinthians when his deal expired at the end of last season.

He has been training with the Cottagers prior to signing for the club.

The veteran will add some much needed Premier League experience to the squad having won two titles during his seven year stay at Chelsea.

Willian featured 339 times for the club scoring 63 goals.

He followed up his spell at the Blues making the move across London to join Arsenal, where he spent one season.

Fulham are having a busy deadline day as they look to sign a plethora of players before the window slams shut.

Marcos Silva’s side are close to completing the signing of Carlos Vinicius, the former Tottenham striker, in a £9.5million deal from Benfica.

They are also closing in on the signing of PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa after Nice signed Joe Bryan on loan.

Leeds winger Dan James also remains a target as they look to secure a loan deal for the Welshman.

Fulham also saw an opening bid of £6million rejected by Blackburn Rovers for Ben Brereton Diaz and they could return with an improved offer.

Silva has been crying out for more players previously hinting at the fact he thought he did not have a big enough squad to compete in the Premier League.

But the West Londoners have started the season fantastically and currently sit 7th with eight points from five games.
