Newcastle could help Arsenal keep Willock for next season

Newcastle United wants to sign Arsenal’s Joe Willock again after he shone for them on loan in the second half of last season.

His 8 goals from 11 starts made him one player that they should keep or re-sign for another loan spell.

However, Arsenal also watched him impress at Saint James Park and Mikel Arteta is now looking to work with him.

It seems the Gunners would give him another chance to fight for a first-team spot.

Newcastle has still not been deterred by that development and they are just lurking around hoping Arsenal would make him available for a transfer.

However, in a boost to Arsenal’s chances of keeping him on for another campaign, a new report claims the Magpies has identified an alternative signing to him.

Fanatik says Steve Bruce’s club would move for Fenerbahce’s Irfan Can Kahveci if it becomes too hard for them to get Willock again.

The report says the 26-year-old has been a long-term target for the North-East club and they are now looking to make their interest official.

Arsenal remains in the market for a new creative midfielder and that might suggest that they still don’t exactly consider Willock a starter ahead of the new campaign.

    Please do not mention “second chance” regarding Willock. That is the proverbial kiss of death from this manager.

    Just ask Guendouzi, Saliba, AMN, Nelson, Mustafi, Ozil, etc….

    Unless your name is Xhaka or Willian, then no worries. Fly to Dubai or be a passenger all year, grab opponents by the neck, rack up yellow cards, no worries mate.

      I agree with that of Willian but trust me Xhaka despite some wrong spins has been our most reliable player for the past 2,3 seasons. Ozil refused to agree that football game has changed and he needs to, Guends, we saw what he displayed on loan too which is what you don’t want to have in your dressing room. Mustafi, you can see how excellent he is now that he left Arsenal, and AMN would not agree that he’s a full back.

    Aarons 2 (when he signs)
    Gabriel 4
    White 6 (when he signs)
    Aouar 8 (when he signs)
    Smith Rowe 10
    Pepe 11
    Torreira 12 (make him stay)
    Johnstone 13 (when he signs)
    Martinelli 18
    Willock 19

    Willock should stay for the good of the club. He is Arsenal through and through and has performed well on loan at Newcastle. He has to be kept.
