Emile Smith Rowe set to inform Arsenal of desire to leave club

Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has been linked with a move away from the North London club this summer.

Emile Smith Rowe has struggled for regular game time at Arsenal, and a report from Football Insider has claimed that the 23-year-old will inform the North London club of his desire to leave this summer.

Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, and Fulham are keen on signing the playmaker, and the development will come as a major boost for them. Smith Rowe has not been a regular starter for Arsenal since his return from injury, and he needs to move on in search of regular playing time.

He was regarded as one of the finest young midfield talents in English football a few years ago. But his development has stalled in recent seasons. An exit from Arsenal will help him get his career back on track once again.

The Gunners already have Martin Odegaard at their disposal, and the 23-year-old is unlikely to start ahead of the Norwegian international anytime soon. He will have to accept the role of a squad player if he stays at Arsenal.

Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, and Fulham keen on Emile Smith Rowe

Aston Villa are keen on the player, and it is hardly a surprise. Unai Emery worked with the midfielder during their time together at Arsenal, and a reunion with the Spanish manager could be ideal for all parties.

Aston Villa will need more creativity and cutting edge in the final third, and the Arsenal academy graduate would be a solid long term investment. Emery knows the player well and Smith Rowe should be able to settle in quickly at the West Midlands club having worked under the Spanish manager in the past.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace need more quality in the midfield as well. Players like Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze could be on their way out of the club, and the Eagles will need to replace them adequately.

Fulham are looking to improve their attacking unit as well, and it remains to be seen whether they decide to make a move for the 23-year-old Arsenal midfielder. Recent reports have claimed that the Arsenal homegrown player is a priority target for them.

Smith Rowe is a prodigious talent with a bright future, and Arsenal might end up regretting the decision to let him leave. However, they cannot provide him with the opportunities he needs right now. So, it would be ideal for all parties to go there separate ways.
