Arsenal to sell Joe Willock to Newcastle United?
Arsenal could reportedly sanction the departure of Joe Willock to Newcastle United on a permanent basis.
The midfielder made a huge impression for the Magpies on loan earlier this year, bagging eight goals from 14 outings.
Steve Bruce has been vocal about re-signing Willock, and The Telegraph claims that the club have made an offer.
The Magpies are willing to pay around £25 million up front for the Gunners graduate as they are desperate to sign him.
The final decision may rest on the hands of Willock. The Gunners are open to selling him to recoup funds for new signings.
Willock has been a regular during pre-season, but he is aware that he won't be guaranteed a starting role next season.
He may have to settle for a fringe role once more, particularly with the Gunners not playing in Europe this term.
Monaco have also been linked with his services. However, they are only eyeing a loan deal with an option for a purchase.
