Chelsea maybe presented with an opportunity to sign Emile Smith Rowe from Arsenal in January. He was also in the list of Chelsea in the summer. However, a report from 90min has now claimed that the 23-year old may consider a move away from Emirates this January. Smith Rowe only got two matches for Arsenal this season and is yet to make a start in the Premier League. According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea tried to make an approach for him in the summer window. Though, their London rivals quickly denied the offer.

Looking into the present scenario of Smith Rowe, it might be inevitable for him to depart in January. Nonetheless, it will be a surprise if Arsenal accepts the offer from Chelsea. Mikel Arteta clearly rates him, given them rejecting the initial offer from the Blues. A loan move to any club might be an option for the Englishman.

Emile Smith Rowe has made 69 appearances for Arsenal. He scored 12 goals and has provided 8 assists in the Premier League so far. Darren Benn, TalkSPORT host has said,

 “I don’t get it, and Arteta came out with something the other day and it actually quite annoyed me when he said that it’s up to Smith Rowe to prove he can play at this level. What?

“It’s almost like Arteta has got a bit of a short memory. Listen, I love Arteta as a manager, but it was back to the 2021/22 season I think it was where his job was on the line.

He was struggling a bit and who were the two that carried him through? Saka and Smith Rowe, he got ten Premier League goals that season.

“Then the following season he had injuries and he’s been injury-hit ever since. But the fact to say, to see if he can play at this level, that’s just crazy. I think if you’re asking me who I would rather play, Havertz or Smith Rowe, Smith Rowe every day of the week.”
