Newcastle in talks with Arsenal over a loan deal for Joe Willock

Mon 01 February 2021 | 14:28

The Gunners youngster is set to join Newcastle for the remainder of the season.

Joe Willock

is among the players that are likely to leave

Arsenal

in the current transfer window.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

,

Reiss Nelson

, and

Shkodran Mustafi

are other players that Arsenal wants to either sell or loan out to other clubs. The north London club are in negotiations with Newcastle for Willock over a loan deal until the end of the season. The 21-year-old has played 17 matches for Arsenal across all competitions but his game time has reduced dramatically in the recent weeks. He has started only three of his team’s last 16 matches and Martin Odegaard’s arrival at Emirates will make it even harder for him to secure a spot in the team’s squad. In an interview ahead of Arsenal’s Tuesday match against

Wolves

,

Mikel Arteta

was asked about the club’s departures in the current transfer window.

“We have decided [who could leave on loan] and we are working on it,”

he said.

“You will find out before 11pm. I cannot speak about any individual players. What we want to do, the conversations we've had, the various reasons. Let's see if we can get something done tonight.”
