Fulham have announced the signing of former Chelsea and Arsenal winger Willian on a one-year contract, while left-back Layvin Kurzawa has also arrived on loan from PSG.

The Brazil international has signed on a free transfer following his release by Corinthians earlier this month and will be having his third spell with a Premier League club.

Speaking to FFCtv, Willian said: “I’m happy to be here, I’m happy to be back in the Premier League.

Fulham is a special club, a club that wants to improve, that wants to fight for something bigger, so I’m here to help, and I cant wait to get started.”

Chief football officer Tony Khan added: “I’m very happy that Willian has officially signed with Fulham.

“He’s been impressive during his recent training sessions with our squad, and we believe that adding a player of Willian’s quality and someone with his vast experience will strengthen the Club as we work to build on the strong start that we’ve had to this Premier League season!

“Come on Fulham!”

Willian is a serial winner, having tasted Premier League success with Chelsea in 2015 and 2017. He’s also won the FA Cup and League Cup and the Europa League.

The 34-year-old has also won 70 caps for Brazil, scoring nine times since his debut in 2011.

Fulham also announce Kurzawa deal

Meanwhile, the Cottagers have also announced the signing of PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa on a season-long loan.

The left-back boosts the options of Marco Silva, who has guided the Cottagers to two wins out of five in the Premier League this season.

Kurzawa said: “I feel very, very happy to be here. It’s a family here, everyone is very cool. I’ve watched every Fulham game this season and I can’t wait to play with this team.”

As two players arrive, another has left in the shape of Paulo Gazzaniga who has joined Girona.
