“Five years contract on the table” Romano says Arsenal is close to a deal with star player

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Arsenal is working on tying down Emile Smith Rowe’s long-term future to the club.

The Englishman has been an impressive member of the Arsenal squad since he was promoted to the first team.

He has joined Bukayo Saka to become another top star produced from the club’s system.

Smith Rowe has been so good that Arsenal hasn’t missed Mesut Ozil whom they allowed to leave in the last transfer window.

The Gunners know that teams will watch his development from afar and they are keen to see that he commits his future to the club for the long term.

Romano says talks are ongoing for him to extend his stay with them for the next five years.

He says they have been working on the new deal since March and they remain optimistic that he will agree to the terms of their offer soon.

He tweeted: “Arsenal are working since March to extend Emile Smith-Rowe’s contract, there’s ‘optimism’ to complete the agreement soon. The player is happy and open to stay – five years contract on the table.”

The midfielder has played 18 league games for the Gunners this season, scoring 2 goals and providing 4 assists.

  1. Anyway, Willock will be sold which is good for his future. Current manager doesn’t know how to develop young players and have own preferences. Saka & ESR become first team because of circumstances.

  2. I like ESR and hope Arsenal can agree this long-term contract for him.

    Don’t get why people are comparing Willock to ESR here. Although he’s done well on loan Willock generally underwhelmed at Arsenal. Maybe the loan spell improved his confidence and helped him become better, but he struck me as a player who wasn’t great under pressure, which is maybe why he’s done better on loan at a club who’s only requirement this season was to not get relegated.

  3. If there is any one who is a fraud and full of BS it is this Romano character. His insights are about as valid as those on the Royal Family by women’s magazine gossip columnists. Of course Arsenal are going to give ESR a proper contract. What a joke club they would be if they allowed City or United to poach him. As for Willock I never saw him play a decent game with Arsenal, although I do remember Zidane praising him after a friendly against Real Madrid. I guess playing in a midfield run by Granit Xhaka and set up by Arteta can stifle most youngsters. I want him to succeed with Arsenal, after all our ability to sign good players is limited, but best of luck to him wherever he goes. Didn’t see him smiling as much at Arsenal, did we?
