Sunderland is eyeing a summer move for midfielder Chris Willock, who will soon become a free agent, as they aim to add experience to their squad for the upcoming season.

The 26-year-old, versatile in central midfield or on the left wing, has amassed considerable Championship experience since his permanent transfer from Benfica to Loftus Road four years ago. He has been a consistent presence for the team and was recognized as the club’s player of the year for the 2021-2022 season. Now, with his contract set to expire, Willock is seeking a new opportunity elsewhere.

Sunderland is in need of seasoned players, and despite Willock’s relatively young age, his extensive playing time at this level makes him an attractive prospect. Beginning his career at Arsenal, he moved to Portugal to join Benfica before going on loan spells with West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield. Additionally, Willock boasts an impressive international youth career, representing England at various age groups on 37 occasions.
