The Daily Mail has recently mentioned that Arsenal are prepared to offer Emile Smith Rowe a new contract. It is understood that the Gunners want to reward the young playmaker with a fresh deal after his excellent form under Mikel Arteta’s stewardship this season (via The Daily Mail).
Smith Rowe’s Impressive Form At North London This Season
Smith Rowe has been a sporadic presence in the Arsenal first-team in recent weeks but has done well to catch the eye with his performances in the opposition half. The London-born prospect has picked up three assists in five appearances in the Premier League this term. He has also impressed by registering one goal and two assists in three matches in the UEFA Europa League group stages this season.
The 20-year-old is averaging 0.8 tackles, 0.6 clearances, 0.6 shots, 2.0 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per game in the English top-flight. He has also been a tidy distributor of the ball after completing 84% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored). The England U-20 international is primarily a box to box midfielder but can also fill in as a winger on the left flank if required, which makes him a useful squad player at the English capital.
Smith Rowe is on the brink of establishing himself as a regular first-team starter at the Emirates Stadium. Hence, he would be better off getting his long-term future sorted, as such a move would allow the player to focus on improving himself on the pitch.
What Are The English Playmaker’s Best Attributes?
Smith Rowe is a quick and agile midfielder who can make some driving runs with and without the ball in the opposition half. He has shown this season that he can create plays for his teammates in the final third and is also not afraid to shoot when he is offered time and space by his marker.
The English midfield ace is slowly but surely transforming himself into a valuable member of Mikel Arteta’s match-day squad. However, he needs to improve his goals tally in the attacking third if he wants to become a future star in Premier League football.
Smith Rowe Set To Be Offered A New Contract: Good Move For Both Parties?
The Gunners would be wise to tie Smith Rowe down to a new, long-term contract as he has the potential to be a success story for them in the coming seasons. The English sensation can also benefit from a pay-rise for all the work he has put in at Arsenal since coming through the club’s academy. Hence, extending Smith Rowe’s stay at the Emirates Stadium will be a good move for both the player and the North London club in the long-run.
