Fulham signed Corinthians winger Willian to a one-year contract, with the Brazilian returning to the Premier League in free agency following his release by Brazilian side Corinthians. Willian has been training with Fulham on a trial basis for two weeks following the termination of his contract with Brazilian giants Corinthians. Brazilian winger Willian made more than 300 appearances for West London rivals Chelsea, where he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a Europa League. After a short stint with Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, Willian moved to Chelsea in 2013, where he remained until joining Arsenal for free seven years later. Willian has stated that the Premier League club Chelsea was his first choice and that if a deal with Chelsea fell through, he would sign with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea’s London counterpart.
Willian arrived in England in 2013, finding much success for Chelsea throughout seven years at Stamford Bridge, scoring 63 goals and making 62 assists. Willian arrives at Fulham with 70 senior international caps to his name and 15 club honours to his name, including two Premier League titles, two League Cups, and two European Cups. Due to his older age, nobody anticipated that he would play in England again, but he has made a comeback and will be working to keep Fulham in the Premier League. Willian told Fulham’s website, “I’m pleased to be here, and I’m happy to be back in the Premier League.” I’m here to help and can’t wait to start since Fulham is a great club that wants to grow and compete for something higher.
