'I hate Arsenal': Some Gunners fans think their club's making a big transfer mistake

Arsenal fans have been discussing the latest transfer report involving the Gunners and James Maddison.

According to football.london, Arsenal would like to include a player in a bid to lower Maddison’s £60million price tag.

Arsenal have reportedly offered one of Reiss Nelson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah as makeweights.

However, the Foxes aren’t interested in any Gunners players and would prefer a cash-only deal for Maddison, added the report.

Some Arsenal fans have an issue with the prospect of Joe Willock being offloaded to make room for Maddison.

Arsenal prepared to part ways with “terrific” player?

Willock came through the ranks at Hale End and is rated highly by many.

The 21-year-old has clocked up 78 senior appearances for Arsenal but struggled for game time more recently.

However, Willock shone on loan at Newcastle in the second half of 2020-21.

He scored eight times in 14 Premier League appearances and set a new record by becoming the youngest player to score in seven consecutive games.

The seventh of those goals also equalled Alan Shearer’s mark for goals in consecutive Premier League games for Newcastle.

“He can go box-to-box, he’s a terrific athlete, the kid, a typical modern-day midfield player who has the ability to get up and down the pitch quickly and has that added ability to score a goal,” Steve Bruce told TEAMtalk.

Understandably, some Arsenal supporters really don’t think Willock should be used as a makeweight.

Here is some of the fan reaction to the report:
