Bayern Munich has been linked to Arsenal’s 19-year-old midfielder Joe Willock per Sky Sports. Willock, you may remember, performed admirably in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in last month’s International Champions Cup match.

In the midst of a re-tooling of the first-team roster and an effort to bolster its reserve team, Willock would be an intriguing signing for the Bavarians. A central midfielder by trade, Willock would seemingly be thrown into the mix with Thiago Alcantara, Leon Goretzka, Corentin Tolisso, and Renato Sanches if he moved to Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich are interested in Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock, Sky Sports News understands. Willock has impressed during preseason for Arsenal and featured in the recent 2-1 friendly defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

Predictably, Arsenal fans took to Twitter and did what they do best: completely and utterly unravel. Here are some of the best responses to Sky Sports’ tweet about Willock:
