Willian admitted that “sometimes things can change” but he aims to keep playing in Europe when he eventually leaves Arsenal.

The midfielder first moved to the Premier League in 2013. He joined Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala for around £30m.

Willian enjoyed a fantastic spell with the Blues. He got 63 goals and 62 assists from 339 appearances for the Londoners.

With Chelsea, he won the Premier League twice. He also lifted the FA Cup, EFL Cup and the Europa League. The Brazillian joined Arsenal last summer as his contract with the Blues came to an end.

The 32-year-old has struggled for the Gunners so far this season. He has failed to score from his 26 appearances, but he has registered four assists.

In a recent interview, as cited by Sport Witness, Willian suggested that playing in Brazil is not an “objective” of his:

“Look, I always say that sometimes we make plans but sometimes the plans change. Today, in my head, I don’t have this objective. I have neither the desire nor the objective to play in Brazil.

“I intend to stay in Europe, anyway. Leaving Europe, going to another market. The United States, I don’t know, another market. But we make plans, sometimes things can change.

“So today I reply to you that I don’t have this thought of playing in Brazil again.”
