A recent breakthrough at Arsenal has given Newcastle new hope for a transfer between the two clubs, according to a report.
The Gunners were recently informed by the news of Emile Smith Rowe writes new terms. The aspiring playmaker, 20, had become the shock topic of transfer ties with Aston Villa. Smith Rowe insisted that it be never making a choice when explaining why he extended his stay.
This deal is great news for no doubt arsenal, but could also be seen positively by Newcastle.
That’s because the magpies were on the hunt for Smith Rowes midfielder Joe Willock.
Willock excelled on loan at St. James’ Park last year and even set a club record from Alan Shearer.
Mikel Arteta recently delivered a mixed message when speaking about Willock’s future in the Emirates.
For this reason, Steve Bruce declared that he would continue to “drown” at Arsenal in order to get Willock back on board.
And according to Sky Sports, Smith Rowe’s new deal could indirectly increases Newcastle’s chances to land her husband.
They report that Newcastle is “hopeful” that it will “accelerate” a future deal for Willock.
The two both occupy the same central position in central midfield, and with Smith Rowe now tied up, Willock could move on.
The likelihood that this would happen while Smith Rowe’s future was uncertain was always slim. Now, however, Arsenal may finally be more receptive to the Magpies’ progress.
The departure of the Liverpool star is one of the noticeable transfers that will not take place this summer

The exact amount is as yet unknown, although Bruce admitted it will “Put a few pounds in the coffers.”
