Arsenal are seriously not giving up on Emile Smith-Rowe, loan offers from top EPL clubs rejected after Chelsea’s

Newcastle United among others have now turned their attention to another Arsenal player as the summer transfer windows is about to close.

West Ham has emerged as a new contender in the pursuit of Emile Smith Rowe, aiming to reinforce their squad with high-quality players following the funds accrued from Declan Rice’s departure.

Going into transfer deadline day, there is a lot of speculation surrounding the future of Emile Smith Rowe. He was previously called a ‘special‘ talent, but injury has halted his progress.

The 23-year-old barely featured during the Gunners’ title charge last season, and has started the new campaign on the bench. That has led to speculation that he could leave the Emirates Stadium, with Eddie Howe’s side reportedly keen.

Arsenal will not loan Emile Smith Rowe to Newcastle.

According to 90min, both Newcastle and Aston Villa have contacted Arsenal about signing Smith Rowe on loan before the transfer window closes on Friday night. However, Mikel Arteta has no intention of letting him leave the club.

Smith Rowe is also the subject of interest from Chelsea, but 90min report that Arsenal have no interest in doing business with a direct rival.

You have to wonder if Newcastle would fall into that category too, but it is interesting to see the Magpies making an approach for the talented midfielder.

With just a few days remaining in the transfer window, a centre-back has to be the priority for Newcastle if they are to make one more signing. Even then, there is seemingly no money left to bring another player in.

Perhaps the Smith Rowe approach was Newcastle just being opportunistic. He is an attacking midfielder, which is a position the Magpies did look to strengthen earlier this summer with interest in James Maddison and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Now Smith Rowe is the subject of an approach from Newcastle, but it looks like Arsenal are not interested in letting him leave.
