In this season, Emile Smith Rowe’s playing time has been interrupted quite a lot due to injuries. Currently, although he has recovered, the young talent of England is no longer used by coach Mikel Arteta.
Journalist Chris Wheatley thinks that Emile Smith Rowe can leave if the current situation continues and assesses Aston Villa as a suitable destination.
“It is absolutely true that Villa is interested in Smith Rowe. Unai Emery admires Emile Smith Rowe very much. Don’t forget, he’s the coach who gave him the chance to get to the first team when he was Arsenal manager,” the journalist told The Chris Wheatley Show.
“I know he is frustrated by the lack of opportunities to play in the first team. Whether or not he is looking to leave the club is a completely different story. He is a quality player, he has give a lot.”
Smith Rowe made his Arsenal first-team debut in 2018 against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League. Since the start of the season, Smith Rowe has not scored a goal for the Gunners.
