Newcastle United, Bournemouth want Benfica striker Chris Willock?

Newcastle United and Bournemouth may make a loan approach for Chris Willock in the winter window, six months on from the youngster quitting Arsenal to join Benfica.

Benfica striker Chris Willock is wanted on loan by Premier League pair Newcastle United and Bournemouth, according to a report.

The young English talent has spent the last six months at the Estadio da Luz after making the surprise decision to jump ship from Arsenal.

Willock has since spent time in the Portuguese club's B team, making 11 appearances in the Liga Vitalis, while also taking part in first-team training.

Newcastle and Bournemouth are both ready to pounce, however, as The Mirror suggests that the 19-year-old will be allowed out on loan from next month, which they hope will help accelerate his development.

Championship sides Leeds United and Millwall are also rumoured to be closely monitoring developments.
