Willian is intent on winning trophies at Arsenal and wants to play at next year’s World Cup with Brazil.

The winger joined the Gunners for free last summer after his contract with London rivals Chelsea expired.

Willian has struggled since moving to Emirates Stadium, but he has said he is committed to honouring the final two years of his deal.

“Well my plan is to stay at Arsenal, I have a contract here, and to win trophies,” said Willian.

“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.”

Willian was speaking to Arsenal’s matchday programme and also revealed his plans for the future.

“After that, 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 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.”
