Italian tells Gunners fans exciting brilliant midfielder to pen five-year Arsenal deal
Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe is reportedly set to finally sign a new long-term contract with the club.
Smith-Rowe has made a real impact on the Arsenal side this season and has firmly established himself as one of the most creative players at the Emirates right now.
He is a player that Mikel Arteta rates very highly and a player that Gunners fans have massive hopes for in the coming season after such an impressive campaign with the club.
The versatile attacking midfielder played 33 times in all competitions last term, scoring four goals, And he has the chance to cement his spot as Arsenal’s chief playmaker following the end of Martin Odegaard’s loan from Real Madrid.
Smith Rowe’s current contract expires in 2023 but Arsenal are keen to reward his efforts with a pay rise and extension.
And, Fabrizio Romano claims the playmaker will pen new five-year terms as the Gunners flog Willian, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi.
Andy Townsend recently opened up and claimed that Smith Rowe is Paul Scholes in the making
“When I look at Smith Rowe, they have a better one (than Martin Odegaard) there already,” Townsend told Optus Sport.
“That young man is so good, he has got great awareness… he is Paul Scholes in the making.
“He can play as a 10, he showed today he can play off one side and come inside, he has got that fantastic ability, awareness, of what is going on around him – not all young players have that.”
Smith-Rowe is a quality player that does have the ability to go on and become a real star for the club, so the news that he is close to agreeing a new contract will be great for fans
