Willian has dropped a major clue about his future with the Brazil star appearing to have erased Arsenal references from his Instagram page. 

The Gunners winger and Corinthians target is rumoured to be headed for the Emirates exit after falling down the club’s pecking order.

It is thought the former Chelsea ace, who enjoyed an illustrious seven-year trophy-winning stint at Stamford Bridge,  could be set to join the Brazilian club this summer. 

There were high expectations following Willian’s move to North London after the end of his Blues playing career.

And the forward, 33, opted to join the Gunners in 2020 on a three-year deal with Mikel Arteta seeking to revamp the side.

However, the player has at times struggled to replicate the dazzling form that saw him win two Prem titles, an FA Cup and a Europa League trophy with Chelsea between 2015 and 2018.

And the winger was also absent from the Arsenal squad that thrashed West Brom 6-0 in the second round of the league cup.

Although Willian is thought to prefer another European club move, the Metro reports the player has not received many offers.

And it is claimed a switch to Corinthians, who are currently sixth in Brazil’s top-flight, could be the most viable option for the forward who is thought to earn £200,000-a-week.

Willian’s agent Kia Joorabchian told Brazilian outlet Globo: “We are looking forward to making this happen.

“For me, it’s very important to help as much as possible.”

Willian began his career at the Corinthians, who play Gremio next, in 2005 before moving to Shaktar Donetsk in 2007 and then to Chelsea in 2013.

A Corinthians move for the player has reportedly been heavily endorsed by the winger’s father in an interview on Brazilian television this week.

On Tuesday Willian’s Dad reportedly told Arena SBT: “There are things that money doesn’t buy. Playing for Corinthians is priceless.”
