HELLO ARSENAL FANS
Emile Smith Rowe signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal and was handed the vacant No10 jersey.
The playmaker has already been the subject of two failed offers from Aston Villa, but the Gunners have always been confident of extending his stay.
Commenting on the news, boss Mikel Arteta said: “As we all saw last season, Emile is a smart player with excellent abilities. His sharpness in the corners and exceptional vision have already made him a key player. for us.
âHis attitude and willingness to learn was also very impressive. A big credit to our team at our academy who gave Emile an excellent education and worked superbly to help him develop across age groups. .
“In addition to the first team staff, immense credit also goes to our senior players, who have played such an important role in helping Emile develop, gain confidence and perform as he has done the season. last.
“I know the fans will join us in being delighted that Emile has committed his future to the club.
“We are now looking forward to helping him develop further and see him become even more important to the strong young team that we are building.”
Meanwhile, Smith Rowe has explained why he signed his new deal with Arsenal.
He said on the club’s website: “[Signing my new contract] means so much to me. I was waiting for it, and to continue playing for this club, it means so much to me and I am so happy.
âI feel like I didn’t really have to think about it too much, you know. I’ve been at the club since I was 10, so for me it was just about continuing at this club, so like i said, i’m really happy. “
And finally, Willian is set to become a “prisoner” at Arsenal this season due to a lack of interest in the winger’s transfer, according to reports.
The Brazilian failed to shoot for the Gunners last season with just one goal and five assists in 25 league games.
Mikel Arteta is happy to let him go, but no offers have been received yet.
And that’s because of Willian’s astronomical salary of Â£ 200,000 a week, reports TuttoMercatoWeb.
Willian has two more years to go on his contract and that means he might not want to take a deal somewhere else with less money.
