Arsenal midfielder Denilson believes Willian Borges da Silva would be a perfect signing for the Gunners during the summer transfer window.
The 23-year old explained that he knows his compatriot from the Brasilian youth National side adding that he is a player with a winning mentality who can be a big asset for the Arsenal offensive department.
Believing that the Gunners need a match-winner, the midfielder was full of praise for the 22-year old who joined Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2007.
On his friend, Denilson said:
Willian would be perfect for Arsenal. I know him well from the Brazil youth team and he has a real winning mentality. I’ve heard Chelsea are interested in him but I think his character could really improve our team.
We need match-winners at Arsenal and knowing what he does for Shakhtar and the national team I know he could do the same in England.
I believe his style would fit much better at Arsenal because of the way we play football. He has great vision and ability. I think he’s one of the best creative players I have played with.
I’ve spoken to him and told him that he could be a success with us. I think he would definitely make our team stronger.
