Joe Willock has done it again and Newcastle United are enamoured with the Arsenal star.
The Arsenal youngster has been excellent since joining the Magpies on loan during the January transfer window, helping to guide Steve Bruce’s men to Premier League safety.
And he has now found the net again, taking his tally to seven goals in a Newcastle shirt, and what’s more, he has now become the youngest player ever to score in six consecutive Premier League games.
Willock’s latest goal was a fine header against Sheffield United, the first goal for the Magpies since the return of supporters at St James’ Park.
The 21-year-old is on fire for Newcastle, and his temporary boss Bruce has already said he would like to snap him up permanently this summer.
He said: “He is Arsenal’s player and we respect that. We will have conversations with Arsenal. Lots of clubs will digest what has gone on.
“We would like transfers to be done early, but we have to respect he is Arsenal’s and we will have dialogue with them.
“For someone so young…. you can see him enjoying it, enjoying getting a goal. He has added something which we hoped, the ability to run forward and score a goal.”
And even before Willock’s latest strike, Newcastle fans were vocally desperate to keep him beyond this season, chanting “We want you to stay”. After the Arsenal loanee was substituted in the second half, that same chant echoed around St James’ Park.
Here’s what some fans have had to say on Twitter, as well.
