Newcastle keen on signing Joe Willock from Arsenal

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has admitted that the club remains interested in Arsenal striker Joe Willock.

Willock spent half of last season at Newcastle and was an important player for them and according to Bruce, they've remained in talks with his parent club and will pounce on the opportunity to sign the player permanently if any arises.

"As I've said, it's really Arsenal's decision, and until Arsenal make a decision – a bit like all the big clubs, they have a look over pre-season – we'll keep monitoring and badgering away. We'd love to do something but it's still Arsenal's call," Bruce said via NUFC Blog.

During his loan spell at the club, the young Englishman scored seven goals in seven games for the club and with his chances at Arsenal still looking beak, he might consider making a move in search of more playing time.
