Can someone please name the players we have considered to replace Willian. I can't find it via search.

I believe it includes:

Sancho - prices high and looking like he’s off to Utd
Benrahma - not 1st choice and playing time an issue
Zaha - price was an issue and not 1st choice
Pellistri - Kiddie for the future

Apparently Dembele is available I would suggest we have a look as Sancho looks gone now : (.

Thanks mate.
Not sure who we can get that would be happy to sit on the bench and play as a backup, but I think Joshua King or Fraser would be nice. Not sure if we are interested in them. Memphis Depay is available as well I think.

Zaha’s price will come down.

04 Aug 2020 19:34:28
Do we need to replace him? Mount and Werner can both play on the wing as well.

04 Aug 2020 19:41:08
We need a specialist for the wing, we just have Puli and CHO for that position.
Also I think the club will replace Willian when he leaves. So.

04 Aug 2020 19:43:56
Is the plan to replace Willian if he doesn’t sign. And zaha’s price would have to come down to what benrahma would cost because zaha price tag for goal/ assists is shocking and played a lot of games,

04 Aug 2020 19:46:54
Out of all of those i only see Benrahma being the most likely but if he's after game time i can't see it happening. Especially since other top clubs will be after him. I'd be surprised if we bought another winger. Pulisic, CHO, Ziyech, Mount, Werner and Havertz can all play out wide.

04 Aug 2020 20:54:52
I truly don’t think we need a signing there and I truly think we could do worse than plugging someone like musonda into that role and seeing if he flourishes from the clubs confidence. Pulisic and Ziyech look to both be elite options and CHO really needs to get a lot of minutes this upcoming season. Additionally Mount and RLC have been played out there and Havertz has as well assuming he’s signed.

04 Aug 2020 22:43:03
There is absolutely no need to replace Willian in my opinion. We have a number of wingers already, Pulisic, Ziyech and CHO and others who can play that position if needed such as Mount, RLC and Havertz (if signed which is looking likely) . We have struggled with a bloated squad for years and it amazes how the club seems to think we need so many players on the books/ in the squad for the season. We don’t seem to learn. Keep the squad small, keep the players motivated.

Replacing Willian isn’t that hard. He’s been with us for 7 years, he’s scored about 30 goals in the league in them seven years. That’s not even 5 goals a season, no loss for an attacking right winger. Ziyech will be better for us.

I think Willian's work off the ball is often underrated as is his ability to make transition rapid from defense into attack. But yes he has not scored that many - though was very impressive in games since restart. But the thought of him in an Arsenal shirt unpleasant, and a pity in retrospect we did not let him go to Barcelona for £60m. I will miss him as an uncomplaining fine servant of CFC, and who at his best had that world class quality.
