The latest update on Smith Rowe’s future will delight Arsenal’s fans

Most Arsenal fans are keen for their club to tie Emile Smith Rowe down to a new contract as Aston Villa continues to look to sign him.

The Gunners have rejected the bids of the Premier League club so far, but they remain undeterred.

Villa could still return with a new offer and Arsenal will probably reject that as well.

But what most Gooners care more about is their club handing down a new long-term contract to the midfielder.

He broke into Arsenal’s first team less than a year ago, but everyone can see that he is a genuine talent and one player who should play at the Emirates for a long time.

Arsenal has already started contract talks with him as they seek to tie him down to a new long-term deal as they have done with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

The latest report on that front from Sky Sport’s Dharmesh Sheth confirms that Arsenal is in talks with the midfielder’s camp and the talks are making good progress.

The Gunners and his representatives hope that they will reach an agreement soon.

Football Daily posted a video of Sheth on their Twitter account and quoted him saying: “Talks over a new contract for Arsenal forward Emile Smith Rowe are moving ‘positively’

“All parties hopeful that a deal for a contract can be agreed.”

    Younger version of Ramsey…Watch this space. 🤔

    1. Davi says:

      He can be much better than Ramsey if he keeps his feet in the ground. Ramsey was great until it went to his head and he neglected the defensive side to his game (which was really good until the season he scored a lot of goals)

        @Davi
        Ramsey was never”great”. He just came good with a few goals we needed at the precise moments. His positional awareness sucked, 9 times out of 10 he left his midfield partner in the lurch. But he covered some ground. Doing what I’ll never know…

        Ramsey was ruined by being shunted out of his natural CM position during his time with us. As a CM in the starting eleven, Ramsey either scored or assisted every other game in his 105 appearances with us.

        Ramsey as CM
        Starts – 105
        Subs – 25
        Goals – 32
        Assists – 23

        Even as a DM, his goals and assists charts are on par with his CM stats. A goal or assist every other game.

        Ramsey as DM
        Starts – 52
        Subs – NIL
        Goals – 13
        Assists – 14

        Even our 45 million signing Partey can’t boast a figure closer to Ramsey, though being hailed as a world-class box-to-box central midfielder.

    2. VasC says:

      Very probable. It’s a waiting game.

      But, I doubt ESR won’t wait for two more years.

      How about a younger version of Van Persie??? It’ll just take one more year of waiting.

    Im sure SR will sign no worries but we still need someone else as he does pick up an injury or two.If he does play constantly in the number 10 position or variants of it,he will be great for us.seems to have everything that position needs.As for Ramsey he was good a most things,but great at none.scored important goals.had 1 really good season and always tried but was played out of position by wenger for numerous seasons.didnt have enough pace but great on the ball,sometimes……

  3. Johnze says:

    Good news. Would have been a disgrace that we lose ESR to villa. Especially after they already got a world class GK for a small 20m last year.

  4. Havyn says:

    Not Ramsey-like rather Kaka-like

  5. jon fox says:

    The Aston Villa saga was always a red herring, as all wise Gooners knew all along. I disregarded it completely from the very beginning, as simply Villa trying to save face with their fans for the imminent sale of Grealish.

    Nothing more than that and never remotely on the cards at all!
