A potential player-plus-cash deal involving Freddie Woodman of Newcastle United and Joe Willock of Arsenal could be on the cards, according to a report.
Chronicle Live report that Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is considering all options to land Joe Willock, and one of those options could be a player-plus-cash swap deal for Freddie Woodman.
Arsenal are looking for a homegrown goalkeeper, and Woodman has been on the club’s radar for a couple of years. His future at Newcastle is uncertain, following a positive loan to Swansea City last season.
Bruce is desperate to bring Willock in, but Arsenal could demand close to £30m for the player, according to some reports. With Newcastle valuing Woodman at £10m, a swap could help them bring the price down to £20m or less, a more affordable figure.
For now, Woodman is set to join up with Newcastle for pre-season, and Willock is still on track to feature in Arsenal’s summer plans when they travel up to Edinburgh for a training camp in just over three weeks.
