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.
However, it seems the Hale End academy product’s performances in training have changed the Spaniard’s mind.
Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka could yet leave the club with AS Roma chasing down a move.
Retaining Willock will only boost Arsenal
Retaining Willock, who proved to be a consistent goal-scorer last season, will only boost Arsenal.
The Gunners are in desperate need of more attacking output in the final third.
Last season, Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were the only players to hit double figures in the Premier League. The highest tally after the trio was just five, scored by Bukayo Saka.
Here is how some Arsenal fans reacted…
Not true. Willocks profile is unique. He is the only 8,5 in our squad. could be a very important sub in games were we seem stuck. Anything under 30m and i’d rather keep him.— Daniel (@DanielPhenomeno) July 13, 2021
Nice we need a goal threat with midfield— Boogie Bousins 🍉 (@ragslos) July 13, 2021
Genuinely okay with the idea of Willock as back up. We’re lacking in creativity and he offers something different— 🌶 (@bukayo7saka) July 13, 2021
Good. He deserves it— Leon Edwards Super Fan Account (@AnArsenalAndUn1) July 13, 2021
