A group of Arsenal fans have reacted with bemusement to news that the north London giants are unsure over the future of loanee Joe Willock.
In a report by Chronicle Live, it is being claimed that, despite his impressive loan spell with Newcastle United, the Gunners are unsure what to do with the England youth international.
Willock has scored four times across just 10 Premier League games for Steve Bruce’s side. However, reports have claimed he could be set for a permanent exit from the Emirates Stadium this summer.
The Telegraph claimed back in April that the club would demand £20m for the towering midfielder should the north-west outfit want to sign the towering midfielder.
The ace’s form has earned him praise from manager, Mikel Arteta, who opened the door for a return to the first-team set-up ahead of next season.
Willock’s goal-scoring prowess has been well-noted since the youngster moved into the first-team back in September of 2017.
Here are a few tweets from fans over the report about the loanee:
Im confused by this. He’s a mid who scored goals. We have a midfield that doesn’t score goals. Can someone clarify why he’s apparently unwanted?

Will Arsenal have any players left at the club come next season?

We have a Ramsey in Willock and I still don’t know why most people don’t see it. He is relentless, strong, scores goals and does dirty works for his team too. I hope he comes back for preseason then break in next season. He’s getting better on a daily.

Dunno what they’re thinking but we need squad depth and he’s got potential.

He’s literally free depth for Partey https://t.co/Ojv93flKYq
