Arsenal fans react as Joe Willock signs new long-term contract at the club

The midfielder has had a strong start to the season.

Young Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock has been rewarded for his impressive start to the season with a long-term contract with the club, as per the club’s official website.

Willock has forced himself into first-team contention this term, having been associated with the club since he was four years old.

Unai Emery said: “Joe has progressed a lot in the last year. He is technically strong and has shown the confidence to take responsibility and play his game whatever the occasion or opposition. I’m looking forward to working with to help him develop further and fulfil his potential.

Edu added: “We’re delighted that Joe has committed his long-term future to us. Bringing young players through from the academy is an important part of our approach and Joe’s progression is a good example for how we want to work in the future.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many Arsenal fans took to Twitter when the club confirmed the news on their official Twitter account and were absolutely buzzing with the news.

Willock has proved himself to be a better option than the higher-paid and more experienced Mesut Ozil this term and it will be interesting to see how he continues his development for the rest of the campaign.
