Newcastle United have continued to push forward in their attempts to convince Arsenal in letting go of their youngster Joe Willock this summer. The 21-year-old spent last season at St James’ Park and had an excellent campaign as he was in the form of his life for the Tyneside club. Willock was in such great form that he ended the last Premier League season by scoring in seven consecutive games, setting a record, and also doing so while playing most of the games coming on as a second-half substitute.
Newcastle fancy the player a lot and have promised him a lot of game time if he signs for them, something Arsenal may not be able to promise him at the moment. Although Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has vowed to put a lot of faith and belief in younger players at the club, it is still a huge doubt that Willock will have an in portent role to play at the Emirates Stadium next season and it is also one of the huge factors that are going to influence the 21-year-old’s decision in the coming days.
