Aston Villa made a hefty offer for the kid, but it was rejected.
Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, is certain that Emile Smith Rowe will not leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Smith-Rowe, 20, has been the subject of Aston Villa’s transfer interest since the market reopened.
Arsenal, despite the Villans’ persistence, are not interested in selling and have rejected a £30 million ($42 million) offer for his services.
“Without a doubt. Yes. He will remain in this location. p. 100 “When questioned about his young charge, Arteta answered reporters, “recent.”
In response to a question about Villa’s interest, the manager said, “No comment.”
Smith Rowe scored the lone goal for his team in Tuesday’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Hibernian, and Arteta was delighted to see him offer more of a danger inside the box.
“He is well aware that this is an area of the game in which he has to improve. We’re putting in a lot of effort on that, as shown by the positions he took today. He generated two or three significant opportunities “he continued.
‘Last season’s top player at this club’
Another of Arteta’s young charges suffered heartbreak over the weekend, as Bukayo Saka missed England’s fifth and decisive shoot-out attempt, thus sealing Italy’s victory in the Euro 2020 final.
“I have [spoken to him], we all have,” the manager said.
“He’s been knocked down, but I believe the support, love, and adoration of everyone in global football is the greatest prize he could have.
“He had an amazing season; he was our club’s top player for the whole season; he represented England; he won the right to play at the age of 19.
“What else are you looking for? True, the cup is important, but you cannot have everything in football.”
