Looking at the stats from Joe Willock’s loan spell at Newcastle last season, you can just see how this player will progress in the Premier League after his permanent move was confirmed this week.

Willock (21) is one of the young English talent coming out of the gates at The Emirates, being sold out to a new and different club, and the will be lucky with their £25million signing.

Steve Bruce knows the game inside out and why he can have use of Willock and not Arteta is a bit strange, but at Arsenal they do not lack talent, they have that in tons, but they have a squad balance problem.

Joe Willock was always seen as a big talent and most fans and followers did believe that the player would have taken the full step, but instead he will now play for Newcastle and a bit like Jesse Lingard at West Ham being getting that chance he needs to establish himself as one of the great young talents of English football.

During his four years in the Arsenal first team frame he added up 40 PL appearances and scoring one single goal. For Newcastle during his loan spell, in 14 appearances he scored 8. Surely this player have a presence that you cannot ignore, and why Mikel Arteta has overlooked that power in this player is a bit strange.

We will just have to wait and see what Joe Willock brings to the table, but at least Steve Bruce knows how to get the best out of him that has already been seen.

Harry Kane is desperate to get his hands on some silverware and leaving Spurs is his grand plan this summer, but at the moment a move that looked possible and with Man City keen on a deal worth around £125million it looked likely that this would happen, but according to the latest talk, a move looks unlikely at this moment.

Anthony Martial could be moving from Man Utd after they landed Jadon Sancho. Spurs are said to be the new and likely destination for the French international who could be surplus at Old Trafford. Manchester Evening News reports that the player is said to have a chance to leave if an acceptable offer comes to the table.

Jack Grealish could be offered a package at Aston Villa that he will not refuse and a move to Man City can be in jeopardy as the England international might be staying at the club he loves in his heart and with that happening Dean Smith could bring Champions League football to Villa Park in a little while, also seeing an important addition in Ashley Young being influential for Grealish and a possible stay.

Arsenal will not give up their pursuit of bringing Leicester midfielder James Maddison to The Emirates. Leicester might be interested to sell if a price in the region of £60million is offered, with Mikel Arteta willing to let players leave and being part of the parcel, Ainsley Maitland Niles is mentioned as a possible option in the deal if it materialise.

Chelsea is said to be looking at a possible chance to bring Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski to Premier League. At the age of 32 it might be the time to make a move, though Bayern Munich are reluctant to a move and want their super forward to continue to smash in goals in the Bundesliga.

Fulham have confirmed the signing of Harry Wilson, joining from Liverpool for a fee of £12million. Wilson (24) never played in the PL while at Anfield and after a number of loan spells including stays at Bournemouth, Derby and Cardiff it will be good to finally settle and of course promotion pushing Fulham will be a good place to play to continue.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has agreed to a contract extension, expire date in the summer of 2024 does see him as the long term manager alternative at Old Trafford. The former striker knows the club in and out and as a person he has started to grow into a position that just needs a trophy collected and the work is close to be completed, ending runners-up both in the PL and EL last season, reaching semi-final in the EFL Cup and reaching the Quarters of the FA Cup shows that the club is getting closer and closer to the big silverware.

Leeds are closing in on two new young wonders, Conor Gallagher in a supposed loan move from Chelsea, and goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson joining from Norwegian club Valerenga. Both moves are seen as really close and Marcelo Bielsa will continue to build at Elland Road. Leeds have already agreed a move for Chelsea youngster Lewis Bate.

Premier League, transfers confirmed, July 2021, Leicester, Leeds and Arsenal with new faces

So far we have seen a number of moves confirmed and not yet much done of affairs among the big guns, rumours flying, but still not much jobs finished, but certainly there are a few moves to mention that of course excites.

Arsenal are often linked with players, but so far the only significant signing is Nuno Tavares coming in from Benfica. Tavares (21) is a left back alternative and said to have cost £8million. A Portugal U.21 international with a season behind him in the first team. We have to wait and see with Arteta will add to his squad.

Aston Villa have so far made the addition of Ashley Young. The fresh Serie A winner with Inter will rejoin Villa after several seasons spent at this football club years back. Young (36) was linked with a move back to another of his previous clubs, Watford.

Dean Smith has also captured a fantastic player in Argentinian Emeliano Buendia who will not be part of the Norwich City PL returning campaign. A 24 year old midfielder with special skills who can be a sensation alongside Jack Grealish if the England man is staying on.

So far no significant moves in at newly promoted Brentford. The Bees has done moves for younger players not really regarded as first team alternatives, but you never know with this club as they tend to find talent that fits their priorities not really age related at all.

Brighton have so far made one strong signing in RB Salzburg midfielder Enock Mwepu. The 24 year old has been on the books at the Austrian club since 2017. He is a Zambia interinational and will be expected to be in line for a first team place. Gary Dicker has also returned to Brighton from Kilmarnock as the now 34 year old is seen as a overaged alternative in the U.23’s.

Burnley is a club that has so far made one strong addition from Stoke City, defender Nathan Collins. The Ireland U.21 international made his breakthrough with The Potters last season, and will get company from another player taken in from the lower leagues, Jacob Bedeau joining from Scunthorpe United.

Nothing to report from Chelsea, but at Crystal Palace you have a very interesting signing from Reading. Michael Olise is a player to watch as the french U.19 international joins after a grand season with The Royals. Interesting to see what newly appointed manager Patrick Vieira will do after taking over from Roy Hodgson.

Everton appointed Rafael Benitez as their new manager, with the current departure of Carlo Ancelotti who we all know jumped at the chance for a new period at Real Madrid. So far no new arrivals at Everton, but we will probably see a few moves happening in the next weeks coming up.

Mercelo Bielsa has unfinished business as he is preparing his Leeds United for next season, adding on loan flank man Jack Harrison to his squad on a permanent basis from Manchester City. Harrison (24) with few England U.21 caps to his name is a player to watch and could be the next player from Leeds to follow Calvin Phillips to a full cap. Leeds ahs also added left back Junior Firpo to their squad from Barcelona. Also 24 years of age and a strong and interesting player.

Leicester City will not live on their laurels with manager Brendan Rodgers adding forward Patson Dake from RB Salzburg and Boubakary Soumare from Lille to his impressive squad, hopefully there will be one or two new players added, and hopefully not big and major move out. Ryan Bertrand is also a certain new man, but nothing confirmed so far.

Liverpool are linked with several names but so far the only new face is Ibrahima Konate joining from RB Leipzig. The France U.21 international is a proven central defender believed to become an integral part of the team and landing a starting position.

Nothing new to report from Man City as Man Utd have added goalkeeper Tom Heaton and flank alternative Jadon Sancho to their squad. Finally OGS got his man, after a long chase for the player that will be among those with a life at both Manchester camps.

No new faces of importance has come in at Newcastle, with a few youngsters coming in, but so far Steve Bruce have no new names in his squad, while at Bruce’s former club Norwich City the situation is a bit different with moves for goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Southampton, forward alternative Milot Raschica from Werder Bremen, left back Dimitris Giannoulis joining from PAOK after a successful loan spell last season. A loan move for Billy Gilmour from Chelsea is also included and added to that Ben Gibson from Burnley, a 24 year old defender with a past at Middlesbrough that is a bit of a hidden diamond, without really finding his place at Turf Moor.

Southampton have done two additions adding Theo Walcott to their squad on a permanent deal after spending last season on loan from Everton. Romain Perraud is also joining from Brest, a 23 year old France U.21 international who operates in central defence.

Nothing new from Tottenham Hotspur as the club has just found their alternative manager in former Wolves general Nuno Espirito Santo. There will probably be done a few moves as a grand group of players are on the out list. Watford are preparing their return to PL action with a similar approach taking in a load of new players including former Spurs man Danny Rose as one of those new recruits. Another prolific player to join is Joshua King moving from Everton after a difficult time at Goodison Park after his recent release. Mattie Pollock, a young defender, has joined from Grimsby Town, and you also have the addition of Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge, so there could be difficulties to find the best eleven.

West Ham and David Moyes have not yet started any big transfer movements. No new players are listed of those seen as first team alternatives. At Wolverhampton, Bruno Lage is their new manager, he has done a few deals, with Ruben Vinagre joining permanently after being on a loan last season. Rayan Ait-Nouri is also a new recruit, coming in from Angers, also seen at Wolves on loan last season. Most excitement might be around the loan move for Barcelona midfielder Franciso Trincao as he will fill gaps at the club that needs to filled after players that has left in particular Diego Jota.
