In an exclusive interview with This Is Futbol, Rob Lee, who scored 46 goals for Newcastle United, has urged his former club to sign Joe Willock, who has been on loan from Arsenal since January.

Willock arrived on deadline day as he became Steve Bruce’s first and only signing of the winter window, and he has been able to hit the ground running, even managing to score on his debut against Southampton.

Should Newcastle sign Joe Willock?





Since the 3-0 defeat against Brighton, Willock has had to settle for a place on the bench with Bruce opting for just two central midfielders in Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff, and instead having an extra centre back on the pitch.

Speaking on why he would like Newcastle to sign Joe Willock permanently this summer and how it’s not obvious what he would cost the Magpies, Lee told This Is Futbol:

I think everyone’s gotprice but I think if we can sort something out then he’s the sort of player you’d want to buy at the right price.

“It depends what Arsenal are quoting for their players these days buthe’s certainly done well enough for Newcastle to have a look at him.”

Easy one to get us underway, in what month during 2019 was Steve Bruce appointed Newcastle manager?

The £20,000 per week midfielder has scored some important goals for the Magpies including an equaliser against and the winner against West Ham.

It has been reported that Arsenal will be looking to get around £20 million for Willock this summer as they attempt to raise funds for a potential move to sign Odegaard.
