It;s very complicated situation we struggling to sell players and the market apart from top english club it's slow and not moving so we either sell Elneny Torreira and keep willock and that won't be happening because there zero interest in them.
you right and i understand your point but also remember the good players want game time and when we have Partey Xhaka Lokonga willock game time will be limited specially no europe. we'll see what happen.I just think selling good players because we cant sell the poor players is a flawed strategy.

You can't just "put" those clauses like this is some computer game.Hope we put a buy-back/sell on clause in this. This should be a standard in all the transfers outwards. Should've put one in Martinez's transfer. Should've got rid of AMN after inserting a buy back clause. Take a little less money if needed.
Mate, I say this with much respect for you as a poster and a general positive bias for anyone who follows, knows, and cares about youth football as much as you, but you are talking about very, very small sample sizes here, and those of us who have a different opinion on Willock such as myself have put forth very real reasons for doubting Willock's ability to be a success for a big club (post I made comparing the amount of passes he makes / game to others, where he is clearly a major outlier, or talking about his % of passes received successfully-- all statistics that support with objective numbers what one can see with their eyes: Willock has aspects of his game as a central midfielder that are highly underdeveloped).Willock's already done it as a 17-18 year old in his debut season under Wenger. He even did it better than Elneny did because he also completed most of his dribbles too. Never forget the Forest game we lost in the FA Cup, when Elneny looked like a lost puppy and Willock was the one holding his hand.
People have forgotten clearly, but let the agendas run.
Space for who exactly. We are selling home grown players who can improve and giving maximum gametime to players like Elneny. How is that in any way a good thing? Then we are extending Xhaka and making him feel more important.Good luck to the lad, wish him all of the best at Newcastle. Opens up a space in the midfield for us.

I am struggling to see how Lokonga will get minutes in the league this season when Xhaka only has one game a week. He is robust enough for 3 games a week, so one is nothing to him. When Partey isn't fit it will be Elneny and soon as he is back, Lokonga won't get a look in.
