Allan Saint-Maximin urges Newcastle to sign Arsenal loanee Joe Willock
Allan Saint-Maximin has told Stadium Astro that he would love to see Newcastle United complete a permanent move to sign Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock this summer – as the Englishman made it seven consecutive games with a goal on Sunday.
Willock, 21, has been in sensational form ever since moving north in January on loan from Arsenal. His stats of eight goals in 14 Newcastle appearances is seriously impressive, especially for a side that are now exactly renowned for their attacking nous.
But it is even more eye-catching given that Willock has now found the back of the net in his last seven Premier League matches – becoming the youngest player to ever do so. He netted the first as Newcastle beat Fulham 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Before the match, Newcastle’s no.10 Saint-Maximin told Stadium Astro that he believes Newcastle need Willock and other players of that calibre if the Toon are to break into the top 10 next season or thereafter. Willock will be somewhat expensive.
