Newcastle and Arsenal have agreed on a £20 million move for Joe Willock, boosting Arsenal transfer chief Edu’s hopes.
Newcastle United and Arsenal have reportedly agreed on a deal to capture Joe Willock on a permanent basis.
According to rumours, Arsenal director Edu is ready to benefit from some extra transfer dollars this summer, with Joe Willock set to sign a permanent agreement with Newcastle United after the Magpies agreed on a fee for his services. After impressing for the club while on loan during the second half of last season, the 21-year-old has been extensively linked with a return to St. James’ Park.
Willock has scored in each of Newcastle’s last seven Premier League games, and his goals have helped the Magpies keep their top-flight place for another season.
Steve Bruce has expressed his desire to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis this summer, and it appears that the 60-year-dream old’s may be fulfilled soon.
According to The Athletic, Arsenal has agreed to sell Willock for a figure “in excess of £20 million.”
Personal terms have still to be agreed upon with the player, according to the source, but the Gunners are happy to let him go.
