Chelsea forward Willian Borges has responded to the claim that he tried to hint at a potential transfer to Emirates Stadium after him and his family appeared dressed in red in a social media post.
The 31-year-old winger is nearing the end of his deal at Chelsea, and it’s easy to imagine plenty of top clubs will be queuing up for his signature this summer.
Borges has been linked with the Gunners and other clubs and he could be a useful addition to Mikel Arteta’s squad, particularly following Nicolas Pepe’s struggles in his first campaign at the Emirates Stadium.
It stays to be seen where Willian will end up next, but he spoke out against talk that he’s been hinting at a move to the Emirates Stadium with his clothing choices.
Still, in the same quotes in the Metro, Brazil international seemed to open the door to joining one of Chelsea’s rivals as he wouldn’t rule out a controversial move to remain in the Premier League, or even in London.
“So there was one day when my wife and kids dressed in red and she did not think it would create any rumours, there was nothing in it.”
On his next move, he said: “However, it is like I said before, if I leave Chelsea with no trouble and leaving the doors open, it would be fine to move to a rival club.”
