Arsenal fans have got an endless amount of young players coming through their squad at the moment. The likes of Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith-Rowe are highly thought of and out on-loan, yet there are loads more in their academy and age group sides who look sublime. One of those happens to be Joe Willock, and the fans think he’ll get his break soon.
Nope, Willock doesn’t replace Elneny. I’d pick Chambers to replace him. Willock plays further forward, either as a #10 or a second striker. Believe me, he is going to make a name for himself soon. https://t.co/9efSBnMUwO

Arsenal fans will have a very successful few years ahead of them should this group of young players stay at the club and stay loyal. Willock is one of many and with the likes of Tyreece John-Jules, Bukayo Saka, Zach Medley and Folarin Balogun just to name a few, the future is certainly bright. In particular, though, Willock is one the fans are desperate to see more of, and he has everything he needs to succeed.
Unai Emery has been surprisingly reluctant to use the 19-year-old even though he’s been in flying form. The midfield man can easily play a number of roles in the middle of the park for the Gunners. As a box-to-box midfielder or when deployed further up the field he can shine, and in his three full 90-minute outings for the senior side this season he’s bagged himself three goals, surely warranting more game time.
You can read the Gunners’ thoughts on Willock here:
Yep yep, gets into great scoring positions but you would ideally want a new mid to replace someone like Ramsey.

Agree with this. Hate to say it but he reminds me of Dele Alli.

Anyway willock is way better than the egytian noble

No point in Willock playing U23s next season. He has to spend the whole campaign playing first-team football in some capacity.

I have no doubts whatsoever that Willock would have performed better against Everton than Elneny did. https://t.co/CJ9lz0X6lt

Willock really should be getting more looks into the first team

The Gunners cannot wait to see more from Willock and will hope Unai Emery gives him his big break next season.
