Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Joe Willock display at Rangers

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Joe Willock after the midfielder produced an impressive second-half performance in the Gunners’ latest pre-season friendly at Rangers.

Mikel Arteta is still waiting for his first win of the summer. But he did get to watch a much better display as Arsenal came from behind twice to draw with Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox.

One of those with a major question mark hanging over them is Willock. It was claimed earlier this week that he has told Arsenal that he wants to return to Newcastle.


That report from 90min suggested that the Gunners were willing to loan Willock out. However, they wanted a £15 million obligation included in a deal.

The 21-year-old seemed to play in a deeper role in their midfield at Ibrox. And he did well in a position he is not particularly synonymous with at this stage of his career.

Some insisted that letting him go would be a mistake. One fan even suggested that he would be a fantastic partner for Thomas Partey.

With that in mind, here is how some of the fans reacted to his display…
