Arsenal forward Willian has outlined his plans for the remaining two years on his contract with the club, explaining that he wants to “win more trophies” with the Gunners and play for Brazil at the 2022 World Cup. Willian also revealed that he wants to play in the MLS before he retires.

Speaking to Arsenal’s official matchday programme, Willian said: “Well, my plan is to stay at Arsenal, I have a contract here, and to win trophies.

“I have two more years here and my plan is to stay and be successful, to play and win something with the club.

“I still want to achieve a lot of things.

“I want to win more trophies, and I want to be at the next World Cup.

“I will do my best to be there. But, yeah, I want to lift trophies for Arsenal – I have a lot of things in my mind that I want to achieve.

“I want to win as much as I can with the team, and go back to the national team as well.”

As well as wanting to play in America once his time at Arsenal is over, Willian explained that he is preparing to become an agent.

“Whenever I have finished here, I really want to go to America and play there,” he added.

“Possibly stay in Europe, I don’t know, but at the moment, one of my targets is to play in America at some point in my career.

“I want to become an agent. I am preparing myself for that profession, I’ve already started work on that.

“I want to go into that because I love football and I want to stay in the sport, I want to do a job in that area, but I don’t want to become a manager or a coach.

“I want to be slightly more outside, but still involved in football.”

Arsenal are set to face Everton on Friday and Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is hoping his side can finish the season well so that they have the “best possible chance to be in Europe next season”.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Arteta said: “They are having a really good season.

“We are not getting the results that we want against Fulham where the result was disappointing apart from the performance, which in my opinion we totally deserved to win the game.

“But we need to win every game now in the Premier League to give us the best possible chance to be in Europe next season through that competition.”
