Arsenal youngster Chris Willock could be on the move in the summer, with The Mirror touting Celtic as a possible destination.

The report claims that the Scottish champions are on the lookout for a replacement for Patrick Roberts, who is set to return to parent club Manchester City when his loan deal expires at the end of this season.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping that the promise of regular first-team football will be enough to tempt Willock into a move away from North London.

The 19-year-old has been a staple of the Gunners’ development squad this term and has shown glimpses of his true potential, bagging three goals and providing seven assists in 17 appearances.

In addition to this, Willock made his bow for the senior side earlier in the campaign, with cameos in the League Cup wins over Nottingham Forest and Reading.

He also received recognition at international level in 2016, winning seven caps for England’s under-19 team.

Willock is clearly rated by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger but may decide that his future lies away from the Emirates Stadium with so many other players currently ahead of him in the pecking order.
