English League One side Sunderland have been linked with a loan move for one of the most in-form players in the Arsenal squad this season.

The Black Cats are one of the several clubs interested in a loan transfer for Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock.

According to Football Transfer Tavern, Joe Willock would be a fantastic addition to the Sunderland squad for the second half of the season.

The Black Cats are chasing promotion to the English Championship via a top-six league finish at the end of this League One campaign.

Joe Willock could be a direct replacement for an experienced player like Lee Cattermole whose appearances for Sunderland have been reduced this season as a result of an injury.

The 19-year-old has been in superb form for both the senior and junior teams of Arsenal in this campaign.

He has scored eight goals in 13 appearances for the Gunners this season.

Joe Willock recently put in a Man-of-the-match (MotM) display for the North Londoners in their FA Cup third round clash with League One outfit Blackpool.

He scored a first-half brace to hand the Gunners a 2-0 lead at the halftime interval before Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi added a third goal in the second half.

Arsenal won 3-0 to secure a fourth round spot in the competition.
