How Unai Emery’s Newcastle United appointment could affect the former Arsenal duo’s hopes

How Unai Emery's Newcastle United appointment could affect the former Arsenal duo's hopes

Emery ready to take over in Newcastle

In something of a coup for the new owners, it appears that former Arsenal boss Unai Emery may be the man to take over Newcastle’s hot seat, with the trusty David Ornstein revealing that he is the number one target for the Newcastle. Magpies.

Meanwhile, other sources suggest the move could happen as early as the weekend, with the Spaniard expected to be on the bench by the time the Tyneside club face Brighton on Saturday night.

But how would your appointment affect the transfer policy and the use of players already in the club?

Joe Willock, one of Unai Emery’s favorites

It’s hard to imagine Joe Willock not having a prominent role under any incoming manager. Signed for £ 25 million in the summer, he was the Magpies’ only permanent transfer business done, and they have invested what was once a lot of money in it.

With Emery, this is almost beyond question. Only goal-pair Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubamayenag scored more goals during Emery’s reign at Arsenal than the youngster, despite Willock making just 23 appearances under the Spanish manager.

It is clear that Emery also likes the player: speaking about the future of Willock’s Arsenal in October 2019, the Spanish manager said:

“He deserved to start this season with the first team and with us. My decision was after I saw him the last two months of last season working with us, his big challenge was that Jack Wilshere left here, Aaron Ramsey left and he had to take that opportunity to be with us.

“I told him that he is improving but that he should not stop that improvement, we are working with him to improve even more.

“But if its progression continues as it does now, I don’t know when it will stop and how far it can go.”

Willock, meanwhile, prospered thanks to Emery’s management, saying:

“It is very exciting because we have a coach who wants to play with the youngsters.”

Clearly, then, there is already a working relationship between the two that could continue if Emery becomes the man tasked with pulling Newcastle out of the relegation dogfight they are currently in.

It’s hard to say the same about a potential entree.

Is a move out of place for Aaron Ramsey?

One of the names that has been perpetually linked with Newcastle since its new owners took the helm has been former gunner Aaron Ramsey. Now exercising his trade in Serie A with Juventus, the Welshman has struggled for playing time, managing just a single league start in September. Clearly, then, he’s in disgrace with Max Allegri, leaving his future up in the air.

However, it wasn’t with Emery that Ramsey enjoyed his best football. The Welshman struggled to secure a starting spot, making 14 bench appearances to go with 14 starts for Unai Emery, while being released at the end of the Spaniard’s only full season in charge in north London.

Who is to blame for his release remains an open question, with reports suggesting Emery was not interested in the midfielder due to not being able to push hard enough on your system. Certainly the lack of regular playtime backs this up.

However, one thing is certain, and that is that the club withdrew from the table the offer of a new contract, with former coach Arsene Wenger. revealing that:

“They had an agreement and the club responded to that, from what I understood.”

It’s unclear if this was due to his lack of playing time under Emery or other factors, but what seems clear is that the pair never agreed.

With this in mind, Newcastle may well be willing to seek reinforcements elsewhere in January.
