Emile Smith Rowe makes a decision on his future as clubs line up to sign him

Emile Smith Rowe is set to leave Arsenal this summer, with several clubs expressing interest in his signature.

The midfielder, a graduate of the club’s Hale End academy, has had spells in the first team and was initially expected to develop into a top performer under Mikel Arteta, earning a new contract early in his career.

However, injuries have hindered Smith Rowe’s progress over the last few seasons, and he has struggled to secure a regular spot in the team.

While Mikel Arteta appreciates Smith Rowe’s talent and wants to keep him in the squad, he has been frustrated by the player’s fitness issues. Arteta would prefer Smith Rowe to fight for his place, but the interest from clubs like Fulham and Crystal Palace has influenced his decision.

According to Football Insider, Smith Rowe has decided to leave Arsenal and will soon inform the club of his decision, allowing them to consider offers for his transfer this summer.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Smith Rowe needs game time and has not proven that he deserves it to us, so we probably should allow him to leave for everyone’s benefit.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Sad news but good luck to the man. Hope he has an injury free run and is able to prove his detractors wrong. Kind of galling that we’ll have to cheer on the likes of Harvetz and Viera while one of our best prospects was never given a break.

    1. @Joe.S
      He was given chance after chance. He just wasn’t fit enough or good enough to take advantage of those chances.

      1. I agree with you. I like him very much and have a weak spot for our academy players. I hope he will stay another season and be the very best version of himself. Perhaps I’m too nostalgic 🙂

        1. We 5honk alike bro..it’s a shame that we are nor able to keep and trust our own products..
          Saka though he had a ‘big personality ‘ emry trusted him so that Arteta could benefit from him..

      2. I think he showed he was good enough when he first broke into the first team. If he can’t stay fit, there’s no point in keeping him around, I agree.

  2. If he goes, he’s definitely one we should include a buy back clause on. He’s already proven he’s good enough, just needs to get through his injury troubles.
