ESR will stay at Arsenal

Arsenal have no intention of letting Emile Smith Rowe leave the club this summer.

The 22-year-old attacker has a contract until 2026 and remains an important part of Mikel Arteta’s plans.

An injury-hit campaign saw Smith Rowe reduced to just 14 appearances in 2022-23.

There has been speculation over his long-term future with Aston Villa seeing offers rejected for him in 2021.

However, the hope is he will be a key player for England at the Under-21 European Championship later this summer before returning to fitness and form next term.

Smith Rowe played only 195 minutes in all competitions for Arsenal with all 14 appearances coming as a substitute.

He was a second-half substitute and provided an assist as Arsenal closed out their campaign with a 5-0 win over Wolverhampton Wandererson Sunday.Arsenal finished second in the Premier Leagueand will play Champions League football next season for the first time since 2016-17

Will Declan Rice become an Arsenal player?

FabrizioRomano on Declan Rice: “Arsenal really want to get it done also because Granit Xhaka is going to Leverkusen and the priority of Arsenal is Declan Rice. 

“They are speaking to the player side, they are speaking to West Ham, they will make a bid after the Conference League final. They want to respect West Ham, of course, but right after, Arsenal are prepared to make a bid.

“It’s true that there is also Bayern interest, but at the moment it’s not that advanced, so Arsenal still feel they are the favourites to sign Declan Rice. 

“But again, this is not something guaranteed yet. From what I understand, we had some reports in England the last two, three days that Rice already made it clear that he only wants to join Arsenal. I’m told this is not clear yet. 

“I was speaking to some sources and they told me be careful because Declan Rice is keeping all the options open. Of course, Arsenal is a concrete option but this is not 100% guaranteed yet. So I think this is still an open race.

“They want more than £100m for Rice so this going to be a big fight, but for sure Arsenal are in the race.”

It was also reported from various other sources that the West Ham United Captain is keen on a move to Arsenal.
