Emile Smith Rowe has emerged as a summer target for Fulham.
The Premier League new boys want to avoid a repeat of the last time that they were in the Premier League when they went down after just a single season in the English top flight.
They have now returned and manager Scott Parker is determined to ensure that they stay longer this time.
The former Premier League midfielder will be backed to bolster his team this summer in a bid to maintain their top-flight status at the end of next season.
Star Sport claims that the Cottagers are eyeing a move for Arsenal’s Smith Rowe alongside, Grady Diangana of West Ham and Mario Lemina of Southampton.
Smith Rowe is highly rated at Arsenal and he spent the second half of the last campaign at Huddersfield Town.
He impressed in his time with the Terriers and he is now hoping to earn a place in Mikel Arteta’s first team in the coming season.
Arsenal’s plan for him seems to have been confirmed after the Gunners knocked back an attempt to sign him from Monaco recently, but the report claims that he will be interested in moving across town to Fulham.
Why not? On loan, to give ESR EPL experience. But sell… No way. That would be something extra in the first round on the 12th.
If ESR is moving on he becomes the 14thplayer of the first team squad supposed to be leaving! Just imagine that if 14 players left?
Let’s be real I doubt not even one third of that number are leaving, there is just 2 weeks to go to to the start of the season. If 14 first teamers leave it leaves us with 16, who thinks that many will leave?
Soares Saliba Gabriel Tierney
Pete Lacca Auba
Bellerin Luiz Mari Kolasinac

This is when Ozil,Guendouz,Holding,Chambers,Mikhtaryan,Sokratis are released,should it happen so then will have more one or two experienced winger/CM signed.
I think as a team we are heading in a right direction.
EMR to stay at emirates may be just loan willock
ESR is a prospect who has attracted interest from other clubs throughout Europe. Therefore, Arsenal will of course sell him, while being stuck with the unsaleable deadwood, prepared to sit on the bench and pocket their high wages.
ESR will become a regular for us in the coming season, so no loan deal and definitely not selling him.
Declan, I agree, but you can’t depend on the Arsenal Board to see it that way.
