    It would be stupide to sell Willock as he’s starting to thrive and Ceballos is heading back to Spain….He scores goals from medfield wich is a threat we dont have right now….

      Ferdinand is right we should built a tram around him and the academy graduates….

    Willock is a true box2box midfielder, our only one since Ramsey left.

    Partey is employed in a deeper role and Xhaka is definitely not a DM or a b2b so might be good to keep Willock around. At least his value is going up if we do sell

    If Arteta fail to integrate the talented youngsters like Willock, Saliba, Martinelli,Nelson,Bolagun and Azeez into the Arsenal squad next season, he should be sacked asap. The lack of opportunities will be detrimental to the growth and development of their potential, as they need play time to gain experience and fine tune their skills. Arteta persistence use of his old and tired experience players (Willian especially) , who have passed their best, has led to Arsenal dropping to 15th position in the premier league in the first half of the season. Arsenal rise to the 9th place now has been largely achieved on the back of strong performances from the youngsters Saka and ESR. Giving Willian and Ceballos opportunities over these youngsters is criminal and unacceptable and Arteta should bare the blame, thus,the consequences of his actions.

      Azeez is honestly amazing…cant believe he’s not getting even a little game time

    How long is it since an Arsenal midfielder scored 5 goals in a season, let alone 5 in 5 straight matches, even if the 5th was a follow up to his missed penalty.
    Willock has done this playing for Newcastle United under Steve Bruce, not exactly renowned for attacking flair.
    It frustrates me when I read of Arsenal being connected with all and sundry, when the Club’s home grown talent in the Academy and on loan appears to be overlooked and discounted.

        Sue, Willock, has to date this season, scored more goals than all other Arsenal’s midfielders combined.
