New Arsenal signing, Willian, has disclosed that defender, David Luiz, was one of the players that convinced him to join the Gunners from Chelsea.
Willian said that Luiz urged him to sign for Arsenal, adding that he was happy to be with his fellow compatriot again.
We had reported that Willian officially joined Arsenal from Chelsea last week.
“David Luiz is very happy,” Willian told Arsenal Digital.
“We played together in the national team, we played together at Chelsea, and now again at Arsenal.
“I think we can do great things together, I hope so, but I am very happy to be with him again.
“He said, “Come to Arsenal, come to Arsenal. I want you to come!” So that was the conversation.
“He’s a very nice guy, a top player and I am very excited to play with him again.
“Of course [he helped in the past], many times. Many times when I had difficult times at Chelsea, he was helping me a lot.
“He’s this kind of person that wants to help, especially young players without experience. He is the guy that helps everyone.”
