Video: Arsenal loanee with another late goal to claim three points today

Arsenal loanee Joe Willock has scored the winner at St James’s Park this afternoon to give Newcastle all three points against West Ham.

The 21 year-old joined the Toon on loan in January, and today’s effort was his third goal in nine Premier League outings.

Willock also struck late against Tottenham recently to earn his side a draw.

Could there be room for Willock at Arsenal next season? Or could this summer be the ideal opportunity to cash-in?

    The only reason I rate Willock ahead of any of our other current players out on loan is his eye for goal, as he’s always positioned in and around the box…of course, he’s not the best when it comes to defensive zone coverage but that is a far more teachable trait than the former…I would keep him on and cut ties with AMN, Guendo, Eddie and Lucas, so we can raise some funds to properly address other key needs…if we could sell them and both Laca and Xhaka, we could bring in 3 key additions then properly integrate Azeez and Balo into the first team…lots to do of course, maybe too much for our traditionally late window transfer inklings, but one can only hope that we might finally adopt a more proactive approach so that we can sort things out early for once…that said, how we ultimately fare in the EL will greatly impact how we will proceed in the coming months, which should make for some tense times ahead

    Obviously got talent, i hope he was sent out for experience and not to put in shop window to sell on. He has talent like AMN but like AMN, im not sure of his best position. Could he turn into a Ramsey like player? We will have to wait and see what plans are for him.

    I suspect Willock is not on the list of players Arteta would wish to move on, and the fact he has shown an aptitude for scoring during his short spell with Newcastle is an added bonus.I think he could develop into an effective box to box operator.He is deceptively quick and runs well off the ball like Ramsay did.Defensively he has much to learn, as alluded to by VL but unless Newcastle ,or any other side are prepared to offer us say 25m for him, he may well be part of our first team squad next season.
