Winger Willian Borges da Silva has said he hopes to win the Champions League with his new English Club, Arsenal.
William was said to have left Chelsea at the end of his contract after he turned down offer of a two-year extension.
He admitted that one of the reasons he joined Arsenal is to win the Champions League, after manager, Mikel Arteta reveals his plan to win it within the space of three years.
Willian opted to make the move across London to join the Gunners with the club offering him a lucrative deal until 2023 – and Arteta’s ambition to win trophies helped him make the decision.
“One of the reasons I wanted a three-year deal was to be part of a plan, not just a player passing through,” he said.
“When I talked with the manager he told me why he needed me for three years.
“It was that he first wanted to qualify for the Champions League and win it by the time I left. That was what I wanted to hear.
“I was at Chelsea for seven years and won everything except the Champions League. Hopefully this move will give me the trophy I haven’t got as well as another Premier League title.”
