We had done a report earlier this morning about how the player was very unsettled and that his agents were looking for a move for him. He had also been linked with Newcastle earlier this summer.
The comments Willems made in the German outlet Bild were very recent and he seemingly will be thrilled with a move to Newcastle. This move, however, may end up spelling the end of the N’Soki deal to Tyneside.
There are no reports of what the fee is but we would imagine it to be in the £5m range. So if this move happens, it will be for about half of the N’Soki fee. This one has kind of come out of the blue but Willems should be a decent addition to the squad.
