Clubs lining up to take Arsenal youngster on loan for next season

Clubs are lining up to take Arsenal teenager Emile Smith Rowe on loan next season with at least two German clubs, one Spanish club and a whole host of Premier League and Championship teams reported to be interested in the youngster.

RB Leipzig, who loaned Smith-Rowe last January and Wolfsburg are the front runners along with an unnamed La Liga side.

All three are said to be waiting on a decision being finalised as soon as the 18-year old has recovered from injury.

The Independent is also reporting that there are a number of Premier League and Championship clubs also monitoring the situation.

The versatile midfielder is considered one of Arsenal’s brightest young prospects and a further season on loan with regular playing time will aid is development significantly and it is considered a certainty that he will be playing elsewhere next season.

The youngster showed his immense potential in the 2017/18 Arsenal pre-season tour to Singapore and followed that up with a couple of impressive Europa League performances but because he was unlikely to see too much senior action the decision was taken to loan him out last January.

Unfortunately, his tenure with Leipzig, having played less than 30 minutes, was short-lived due to injury.

    Fine but put a condition in his loan contract that we can bring him back in January if needed

    He may be useful to us, even at his young age

    I rate this kid highly and it’s interesting to see how his career shapes out in the coming years. I wish we handle him well so we do not have to end up with another Wilshere. I think a loan to Germany or Spain would suit him to allow him to horn his technical aspects of the game.

    Sorry to go off topic but just read an absolute rubbish report by the “fake news” Evening Standard about Manchester United derailing Arsenal’s move for Zaha due to being owed a percentage of the fee, not 100% sure but this report has probably come from Oinstein, note I use only he’s second name because that makes him sound more important, another fraud along with his newspaper. You can be sure any news outlet that has George Osbourne and David Oinstein connections is not worth the paper it’s written on.

    Actually I’ve delved further into that report and discovered it was by Simon Collings, another second rate reporter, however that doesn’t change my mind about David Oinstein

    Hmmmm another tasty serving of fake news click bait. Welbeck enjoys these delectable treats which only come around once a year during the summer**

    ** Reporters have little or no real news to print in the close season so they speculate.

    Why can’t we play him and use him? We do we not seem to use any of our youngsters?
