Brazilian winger Willian says he ‘really wants’ to play for MLS team on the future, however, is keen to lift major trophies with the Gunners beforehand and hopes to represent Brazil at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The 32-year-old attacker has joined the Gunners on a free transfer last summerfrom their arch-rivals Chelsea where he helped the team to win two Premier League trophies, an FA Cup, Europa League and a League Cup.
However, Willian has struggled to live up to expectations across an underwhelming debut campaign with the Gunners at the Emirates and is yet to score a single goal in an the Gunners shirt with the team languishing down in ninth place in the English top-tier.
However, Willian has the opportunity to add a third European trophy to his CV this campaign as Mikel Arteta’s team prepare to do battle with La Liga outfits Villarreal for a place in the Europa League final.
Speaking to the Gunners official matchday programme, former Chelsea star lifted the lid on his future plans and dropped hint about a move to MLS could be on the cards further down the line.
‘Whenever I have finished here, I really want to go to America and play there,’ Willian added.
‘Possibly stay in Europe, I don’t know, but at moment, one of my targets is to play in America at some point in my career.’
