Chelsea fans react as Willian eyes return from Arsenal

A selection of Chelsea fans on Twitter have sent their reaction after it was reported that Willian is keen on rejoining the Blues from Arsenal this summer.

The Brazil international spent seven successful seasons with the Blues, registering 63 goals and 62 assists from 339 appearances in all competitions.

He was offered an extension last summer but decided to join the Gunners on a free transfer as he was handed a better financial package.

The 32-year-old has since had a disappointing debut season for the Gunners, with just one goal and seven assists from 37 appearances in all competitions.

Willian did not feature in any of the last three league games for the club, and it appears that he is already planning a move away from north London.

The Brazilian has two years remaining on his contract with the Gunners, and he has regularly been linked with a move to Major League Soccer.

However, the experienced attacker is keen on returning to the Blues this summer, though it is unclear whether they will consider re-signing him.

Willian was a quality performer during his time at Stamford Bridge, but some of the club’s faithful have not welcomed the possibility of a comeback.

Here are a few Twitter reactions.

Willian, who earns a basic salary of around £100,000-a-week, ended his debut season with the joint-most assists for the Gunners, alongside Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe.

However, two of those came in the opening Premier League game against Fulham, and he struggled for consistency over the course of the campaign.

The attacker struggled to provide any threat on goal. He finished the top-flight season with only 20 shots. Only three of those were on target.

The move to the Gunners has not worked out for him. It remains to be seen whether the Blues are tempted to re-sign their former player.

In recent days, Eden Hazard has also been linked with a possible comeback from Real Madrid despite his regular injury concerns.
