Arsenal want to sell this summer, in particular to compensate for the arrival of Ben White (23). The Gunners are said to be close to an agreement with Brighton for a transfer around € 60m. The England international, who has three years of contract left, is one of Mikel Arteta’s priority targets during this transfer window. One of the players announced on departure is Willian (32).
Arrived free last year from Chelsea, the Brazilian, under contract until 2023, has struggled to have a real impact on Arsenal’s play this season. But his salary, around 900,000 euros per month, is a drag, as the Daily Star. Few clubs would be inclined to offer him equivalent remuneration, even if the transfer fee should be rather low.
