Monaco in talks with Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock

RMC Sport report tonight that AS Monaco are in talks with Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old is under contract with the Gunners for the next 2 seasons, but with talks for Lyon man Jean Lucas at a standstill the Monégasques are looking at alternative midfield options. The club is looking to add another recruit to the current Tchouaméni-Fofana duo which impressed in the middle of the park last season.

Willock, who went on an impressive 8-goal scoring run with the Magpies at the back end of the season, came through the youth academy in North London and has four senior seasons under his belt.
