At a GlanceSports – Willian said a key factor in his decision to join Arsenal was head coach Mikel Arteta's plans to win the Champions League in the next three years.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the Brazilian winger confirmed the targets for himself and his new club.
What he followed on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea – was to reach the pinnacle of European football.
Arteta led Arsenal to an FA Cup win last season, but the club finished eighth in the Premier League, 10 points off the Champions League qualifying place.
Willian, however, believes in his new boss that European football will not only return to the Emirates Stadium, but that the team will be successful in it.

“One of the reasons I wanted a three-year contract was to be part of the plan, not just a passing player,” he said.
“When I spoke with the manager, he told me why he needed me for three years.
“He first wanted to qualify for the Champions League and won it while I was away. That's what I want to hear.
“I was at Chelsea for seven years and won everything except the Champions League. Hopefully this move will give me the trophy I haven't yet won as well as another Premier League title. “
