Newcastle prepared to pay the asking price for Joe Willock


Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock continues to be linked with a move to Newcastle United this summer.

According to the Telegraph, the two clubs are prepared to complete a transfer, but the player is still undecided regarding his future.

Newcastle want Willock so badly that they are prepared to pay the £22 million asking price despite their limited financial resources.

The 21-year-old midfielder was outstanding for Newcastle during his loan spell last season.

He scored in seven consecutive Premier League games and made a huge impression on Steve Bruce and the club’s fans.

Willock needs to play regular first-team football to continue his development, and he is unlikely to get that opportunity at Arsenal.

He believes that he is good enough to play for the Gunners and is not ready to give up on his boyhood dream of establishing himself as an Arsenal player just yet.

Willock will have to make a concrete decision regarding his future soon.

A move to Newcastle would not only guarantee him regular first-team football but would also help him fulfil his tremendous potential.

The midfielder is only 21 and will get plenty of opportunities to move to a top club in the future.

For now, Willock must focus on his development as a player.
