Great News – Arsenal quickly dismiss Chelsea’s interest in Emile Smith-Rowe

Arsenal respond to Chelsea’s interest in Smith Rowe

Arsenal have knocked back Chelsea’s advances of luring away Emith Smith Rowe from the Emirates Stadium, according to The Daily Mail.

The midfielder saw little action last season, as he made just 15 appearances for the club. This season, he is yet to register a start for Mikel Arteta’s team.

Despite spending extortionate amount in transfers this summer, Chelsea are willing to spend further to ensure Mauricio Pochettino has the best possible team in his maiden tenure at Stamford Bridge.

The report further suggested that any move from Arsenal’s Premier League rivals will be rejected out of hand. But that situation can change if the Gunners receive a massive bid for their 23-year-old midfielder.

Chelsea are believed to be open to including a player in the transaction to sweeten the deal and tempt Arsenal into selling their prized asset.

However, it is still unknown whether that will prove to be successful or not.

While Smith Rowe is capable of playing on multiple positions, it is the sheer competition in every position that has reduced the Englishman’s presence to the bench.

The Hale End graduate is behind Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard, when it comes to starting on the left wing. Whereas new arrival Kai Havertz and Fabio Vieira are clearly preferred by Arteta when it comes to playing in the number eight position.

Despite impressing in England’s U21’s triumph at the Euros, Smith Rowe finds himself in almost a similar position than what he was in last year.

Thus, seeing the midfielder depart before the end of the transfer window will sadden the Arsenal faithful but not surprise them. As was the case with Kieran Tierney.

And fans know that players leaving and joining the club is just part and parcel of world football.

But if Chelsea offer a really good player in exchange of Smith Rowe, would you be tempted to do a deal? What if they offer Mykhailo Mudryk?

  1. As I said in a similar “ESR to Chelsea rumoured article” only hours earlier today, I rejected the daft rumour as nonsense and said it was not happening.

    I REPEAT that rejection of a further false rumour and I DO SO AGAIN NOW.
    Only an unthinking fan would convince themself that the crazy idea of us letting ESR go to Chelsea, or to any other club, has legs.
    It plainly does not!

    Please stop writing clearly false rumours and use your brain before writing tosh!

  2. The headline says “Arsenal have rejected Interest from Chelsea” but the article says “a suggested move for him would be rejected”. Which is it?

  3. A lot of talk from Arsenal fans suggesting Chelsea are interested in signing him,I’ve not seen anything to suggest this is true ,if it was then I would join the bandwagon,but Mr Arsenal Charlie watts as shut that down .
    Very confusing why he’s not getting any minutes though .

  4. Havertz should not have been bought as we had SmithRowe, Rice was needed for Xhakas departure & I think its huge mistake letting Teirney depart when we still have Taveres here plus the situation with Gabriel isn’t ideal to add to Zinks lack of defensive triats.

  5. Smith Rowe should be loan out on a season long loan to Aston Villa, as there seems to no clear path to the first team for the kid.

    It would protect his value and prevent him from developing ring rust

  6. ESR should just leave, MA will never change his mind once you aren’t one of his favourites.

    It’s a real shame that one of our own youth is being treated like rubbish so that ego can be stroked.

    All that ability and those goals just sitting on the bench rotting.

    1. And just in general regardless of team, it’s never great to see players filled with talent and ability rotting on a bench when they are coming into their prime.
