With a strong bid, Arsenal is eager to sign Estevao Willian.

Heavyweights in the Premier League Arsenal are reportedly prepared to step up their pursuit of Estevao Willian, who is wanted by Chelsea and Barcelona.

Sport Witness has reported that Arsenal is interested in Estevao Willian, per a report from Mundo Deportivo.
