REPORT: Arsenal forward 'ready to quit club after disappointing start to the season'

No doubts, Arsenal football club have been one of the few active English clubs so far in this summer transfer window.

The North London club are very keen on doing better than the previous season and have completed the signings of Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard to improve their squad under the management of Mikel Arteta.

However despite those signings, the Gunners lost their first two games of the season and are currentlty rooted in 19th position on the Premier League table.

Due to those results, it is believed that Arsenal are looking to make further additions to their squad and in order to create space for new additions, they are very much aware of their need to offload several players.

That said, if reports are anything to go by, then Arsenal forward Willian Borges is ready to quit the club before the end of the summer transfer window.

The 33-year-old Brazil International, who joined Arsenal from Chelsea in 2020 has been deemed surplus to requirement after a disappointing 2020/2021 season at the club where he scored just one goal in 37 appearances in all competitions.

It is believed that Willian Borges wants to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer and according to reports from popular transfer expert Fabrizio Romano via his verified Twitter page, Brazil club Corinthians are said to be interested in signing him and have offered a contract until 2023 or 2024 for him.

The reports further claimed that talks are ongoing between Willian and Corinthians on salary situation as Arsenal are prepared to let him leave on a free transfer.

If a deal gets completed, the veteran winger will now aim to put his disappointing spell at Arsenal behind him and get back to his best as the 2021/2022 season continues.
