Rob Holding remains injury free the entire season, playing almost every game and is one of Newcastle’s top performers.
He blossoms into the player many Arsenal fans hoped, and is considered amongst the best defenders in England, gaining a spot in the England squad for 2020/21.
Holding returns to Arsenal to take his place in the first team.
Rob Holding remains injury free the entire season, playing almost every game and performs well for Newcastle.
He forms a good partnership with Jamaal Lascelles but does not consistently perform to a higher level.
At the end of the season he has a choice between being a squad player at Arsenal, or joining Newcastle permanently to play week in week out.
Arsenal would receive £25m+ for the proven, but not top draw, centre back.
Rob Holding continues to struggle with injury, and when he does play it a fairly average performer for Newcastle.
In and out of the team, he is outperformed by Jamaal Lascelles. Newcastle do not see him as a regular first choice so move on to other targets.
Holding them returns to Arsenal where he has proved himself to be adequate enough to be 4th choice, but no more.
The alternative option is Arsenal sell Holding to a promotion chasing Championship team for around £10m
With Gabriel and William Saliba joining the club, Rob Holding has found himself as 5th choice centre back. David Luiz and Pablo Mari also ahead of him.
Holding is yet to start 10 Premier League games in a single season and is now 25-years-old, having also come off a bad injury in the last 24 months.
There are plenty of sides interested, but due to question marks about his lack of consistent performances over the last 4 years, none really want to invest big.
Interested sides would likely buy Holding and another similar central defender, splitting their funds and risk between the two.
With COVID19, the most Arsenal could expect this summer would be £10m.
