Arsenal former player Kevin Campbell has said that Emile Smith Rowe will play like a new signing. The winger underwent surgery for his groin in the first half of the season.
However, he is going to be available in the second half of the season. Therefore, this will increase the squad depth of the Gunners.
ARSENAL WINGER MIGHT HAVE HELPED THE CLUB SAVE MONEY ON A NEW SIGNING
Arsenal winger Emile Smith Rowe is getting more and more closer to full fitness for the second part of the season. Hence, many Gunners fans are also seeing him as a new signing. A number of fans have also claimed that he has saved the club money. This is because Arteta would also have signed a left-winger if Smith-Rowe was not fit. Gunners legend Kevin Campbell also said,
“We’re going to need a squad, we’re going to need it stronger and we’re going to need ESR.
Emile Smith Rowe will also now provide competition to Gabriel Martinelli on the left side. Hence, the level of Gabriel Martinelli is going to go up due to the competition in the squad. Hence, Arsenal will now focus on signing a right-winger and a midfielder. The return of Emile Smith Rowe in the squad will also mean that the Gunners will be open to loaning out Marquinhos in the January transfer window.
EMILE SMITH ROWE WILL STEP UP HIS FITNESS DURING THE DUBAI CAMP
According to reports, the Arsenal winger will also travel to Dubai with the first-team squad for a friendly tournament. However, it is unlikely that he will play any matches. The report also claims that the winger will be back to fitness at the end of the Dubai camp. Hence, he is expected to be part of the squad in their first match after the World Cup.
This will also be the perfect time for Arteta to get his player. It is because there are chances that Gabriel Martinelli will go to the knockout stages with Brazil in the World Cup. Hence, he is going to take a little rest to recover for Arsenal after returning. Therefore, the role of Emile Smith Rowe increases in the first few matches. These matches will also test his recovered groin.
Hence, Arsenal will make movements in the January transfer window to accommodate Emile Smith Rowe and the new signings. Mikel Arteta will also hope that Smith Rowe leads them to Champions League football next season and they continue to challenge for the Premier League title.
