Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has revealed that Joe Willock’s future is uncertain, with interest from Newcastle United.
This is after Steve Bruce said on Friday night that he “can’t wait forever” for the final decision on the availability of the 21-year-old who inquired about the loan after returning to North London.
Arsenal bosses hope that after Willock played for 20 minutes against Chelsea last season, the midfielder will stay focused and continue training with speculation that he may return to Tyneside. He said he was. They are preparing for the new 2021/22 season.
When Willock (and Bellerin) was asked if the club had futures, Arteta had to say:
“”do not know.
“I will guide and train them and will respect and care for everyone because they are our players.
“They are Arsenal players and our job is to make them as good as possible, so I hope we can prepare here with their hearts here.”
Others may disagree, but Arteta’s refusal to say “he’s staying” makes all these comments get Arsenal the best price possible. I believe it is part of a pulled out transfer game that features what it is.
I believe Arteta’s determination speaks for itself, and if we have the money to make it, I think they will soon accept a bid of £ 20 million.
On the other hand, he thinks it’s likely to be available on loan in the last few weeks of the window. Xhaka’s U-turn and Lokonga’s signature are not useful for normal game time bidding. The question is how long to wait for the final decision in that regard.
Recall what Bruce said when asked about Willock after winning 2-0 at Burton.
“We are doing our best to make Joe Willock work. We are doing everything we can.
He is an Arsenal player and we must respect it. But we can only explore it for a very long time-and that time is a bit shorter. “
“We can’t wait forever.
“We have revealed that he is our number one target throughout the summer, so we will continue to work with it and see if anything can develop.
“But there is a deadline.”
“We haven’t bid on anyone yet. There are one or two irons in the fire.
“I’m sure we’ll have a couple of new players, but we’ll have to wait another week or so.”
