A source from Newcastle United has dropped a big transfer claim on the future of Joe Willock at the St. James’ Park faithful.
That’s according to Football Insider, who say the Arsenal man has ‘expressed an interest’ in moving back to the North East in the 2021/22 term on a permanent deal.
Should Newcastle sign Willock?
He has reportedly told his teammates that he wants to stay at the Tyneside club next season after an ‘enjoyable’ spell out on loan, as he believes that he will get more game time, an opportunity which ‘does not exist’ with Mikel Arteta’s team.
However, Willock believes that his future may depend on whether the Gunners sign Martin Odegaard on a permanent basis after his loan spell from Real Madrid ends, with added ‘doubt’ over whether the Magpies have the funds to sign him.
Newcastle should sign Willock
The Toon should try and do all that they can in order to sign Willock on a permanent transfer, given that he has already shown just how much of an impact that he can make.
Goals from midfield can be extremely valuable especially to a club with only one out and out goalscorer in Callum Wilson, so a permanent move for Willock could play a massive role in hopefully kicking the Toon on from relegation survivors to top ten contenders in the coming years.
