Some Arsenal fans react to report about Joe Willock

Some Arsenal fans reacted after a report claimed that the club are likely to keep Joe Willock this summer.

According to the Northern Echo, the Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has been impressed by the midfielder since his return to pre-season.

Reports earlier in the transfer window hinted that Willock could be on his way out of Arsenal. The Gunners had set a £30m price tag, with Newcastle United heavily interested in the ace.
