Celtic eye swoop for hot prospect Willock


According to the Daily Record, Celtic are keeping tabs on Arsenal youngster Chris Willock with a view to an approach in the summer.

The highly-rated 19-year-old England youth international is out of contract this summer and is thought to be weighing up his options despite being offered improved terms at the Emirates.

It is claimed that Brendan Rodgers sees Willock as a potential replacement for winger Patrick Roberts who has been on loan at the runaway SPL leaders this season from Manchester City.

Willock made his first team debut against Nottingham Forest in this season’s EFL Cup after impressing for the club’s under-23s on on the pre-season tour of California. His younger brother, Jo, is also part of the Academy setup at London Colney while his older brother, Matt, is at Manchester United.
