According to confirmation from Fabrizio Romano, Emile Smith Rowe has never been a top target for Chelsea, because they always target Cole Palmer as their number one priority. At the same time, Smith Rowe is still in Arsenal’s plans.
British journalist said:
“Chelsea have got the deal they wanted in attack, signing another top young talent – as they have done so many times under Todd Boehly.”
“There have been a number of other interesting Chelsea transfer rumors circulating, but to be honest, I have no idea about specific negotiations with Emile Smith Rowe. Chelsea have been linked with more than 20 players this summer, but behind the scenes they’re looking forward to Cole Palmer.”
“Smith Rowe has never been Chelsea’s top target or even about to move to Stamford Bridge, because Arsenal trusts Smith Rowe and he is part of Mikel Arteta’s project.
In fact, perhaps Smith Rowe will still be unhappy about his current situation, when he has not featured in all three opening Premier League matches.
