Chelsea winger Willian rejected the club’s latest offer of a new two-year deal and now his transfer to Arsenal appears to have been confirmed in a leaked PES 2021 clip.
The Brazillian is shown wearing the Gunners kit in the seven-second video.
Arsenal have partnered with video game series Pro Evo – whose game rivals Fifa as the biggest on PS4 and Xbox.
The clip says “new signing” at the beginning and appears to show the 31-year-old in Arsenal colours with “Willian” across the screen.
A PES 2021 watermark is visible in the bottom left corner.
Arsenal tweeted a video earlier today showing what players can expect from the game – set for release on September 15 – three days after the new Premier League season begins.
The leaked video suggests Willian will by then have completed his move from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates.
Willian – who has been with the Blues for seven years – had been holding out for a three-year deal from former team-mate Frank Lampard.
He has reportedly been offered that by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.
Chelsea already made an exception in Willian’s case with the two-year offer because they usually only give over-30s a one-year contract.
All signs now seem to point to his exit in this window.
