FORGET WILLIAM SALIBA: ARTETA HAS TO RE-INTEGRATE ‘QUICK’ ARSENAL PLAYER NEXT SEASON – OUR VIEW


Arsenal currently has a plethora of talented loan players on their books, and while all of them will make a case for first-team spots next season, none is as good as Joe Willock's.




Indeed, the midfielder continued his impressive run of form for Newcastle on Wednesday evening, scoring for the sixth time in six games.


Willock was loaned out to show that he can play in the Premier League, and it's fair to say that he's made his talent abundantly clear over the last few months.

The midfielder has shown his worth to Arteta, and it is clear that the Spaniard must carry him back into the fold.

The timing couldn't be better either, as Arteta is having midfield issues, Dani Ceballos is returning to Real Madrid, Granit Xhaka has hinted he wants to return to Borussia Monchengladbach, and Martin Odegaard looks set to return to Real Madrid, leaving a lot of options available for Willock.



If Arteta continues to ignore Willock, he risks sending the wrong message to all of his young players, especially those who are loaned out. After all, what more do you want from a loanee than Willock's work over the last few months?

He's made a big impression on the fans at St James' Park, and the players on Tyneside love him, with Callum Wilson recently describing him as "fast" while praising his ability.



Willock's form is unlikely to continue, but even if the 21-year-old does not establish himself as a key player at Arsenal next season, he should be given a chance at the start of the season based solely on his performances for Newcastle.


An argument could be made for a number of Arsenal's loanees, including William Saliba, who is seemingly winning plaudits on a weekly basis, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who has also looked good at West Brom, but if any loanee is going to be re-integrated into the squad next season, it has to be Willock.
