Arsenal make U-turn on youngster’s future

Arsenal is already looking towards offloading some of their players in the next transfer window.

The Gunners have one of the biggest squads in England and that explains why they had to leave some of them out of their registered squad for the Europa League and the Premier League this season.

They hope to send some of them away next month, and this includes experienced and inexperienced players.

One player who would have been among the departures next month is Emile Smith Rowe, but CBS Sports says that Arsenal has made a U-turn on his future.

The report says that the Gunners have decided that he will stay after he shone in Arsenal’s last two games.

The Gunners have lacked creativity for much of this season, but when they brought Smith Rowe into the team against Chelsea and Brighton, things have looked better for them on the creative front.

While the club might still sign another midfielder next month, they are not expected to allow him to leave them on loan again. 

With a lot of games to play, they anticipate that there will be a need for his talents, he has to stay because of that.

      Sue, you remember I said on JA that ESR will save us millions.

      He’s better than the 60m Aouar. Great news 🤝

      1. Mike says:

        Fully agree let’s build from within so happy for ESR.

      2. Sue says:

        I do indeed, Phenom… and how right you are 👍 Happy New Year 🎆

    Agreed Sue.

    I first saw this lad in preseason games in the US under Arsene Wenger and loved him from the moment I saw him. He had a couple goals and was very mature in his performances, I rated him highly then and the only surprise for me is that it took him so long to finally make a breakthrough to the first team. I expect nothing less that greatness for ESR, and I’m quietly confident that he will deliver

    Wonderful! ESR is really good! Determined and brave with elements of creativity. If properly managed could be a future 🌟!

    He really does look like the missing piece of the jigsaw. I think he has plenty of goals and assists in him, and that will come with time, but currently his busy, intelligent style, coupled with excellent ball control, is making a massive difference on the quality of the team performances.

    I see a lot of Grealish in the young man. Has a similar build and style of play, just less polished or refined as Grealish for now.

    People don’t really talk about the defensive shifts he puts in. He tracks back, tackles, and tries to be a complete player.

    You can play a roving 10 who works defensively, and presses with the ST or traps with other midfielders. I’m excited for his future combining with Saka & Martinelli.

    Sorry it took us to be forced to play him in order to realize but at least he is now in. Can’t wish it to players but we may see Nelson and Willock start in EPL and show they not removable as Saka who we did almost lost

    We have the best academy for decades and it shows generation after generation; we can play 5 to 7 /young players today…Let’s not lose Belogun…

      Mogunna, agree with your assessment and I believe that, like you, we have those who had the vision and trust in our youngsters to actually sign them.
      Mikel inherited a goldmine of young talent.

    2. ken1945 says:

      Mogunna, third time of trying to answer you.
      I agree with you regarding our younger players and we have to remember who it was who signed them… AW of course.

    I do not accept the articles premise that ESL would have been sent on loan, (though now will not). IMO he was never going to be loaned out at all and MA knew his value to us , which is why he was played. MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO A LOGICAL MIND.

  9. Wayne says:

    Good. But, Arsenal must must do the same to keep Bolagun and Saliba,and must register them in the Europa league and premier league squads . Ceballos must also leave and make way for Buendia.
