North London club, Arsenal have been told that securing the service of West London club, Chelsea player Willian is bad business for the club as it will affect the progress of their young stars.

The Gunners are keen on the signature of the Brazilian international as he is yet to agree on a new deal with the Blues team despite the efforts by manager Frank Lampard to convince the club of a new deal for the player.

The Gunners are hoping that Willian will leave the Stamford Bridge as a free player in this summer transfer window so as to tie him up at the North London with a deal.

However, Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent said the Gunners should not invest in Willian because he will block the chances of younger players who are already progressing well at the Emirates Stadium.

He noted that Arsenal have the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah, and Bukayo Saka at their forward which is enough to compete.

According to him, Willian will not get enough playing time in the team which makes his coming wasted while his presence will limit the playing time of some of the players which will affect their progress.
