Fabrizio Romano claims Arsenal are now planning to extend another player's contract until 2026
Arsenal have tied Kieran Tierney down to a new contract, and Fabrizio Romano claims the Gunners won’t stop there.
The Scotland international has signed a new long-term deal, reportedly taking him to the summer of 2026.
Tierney was sensational throughout last season, one of the most consistent and reliable players in Mikel Arteta’s ranks.
Overall, he has made 62 appearances for Arsenal, and helped them lift the FA Cup in his first season.
Likewise, Tierney has been in great form for Scotland, helping his nation reach the Euro 2020 finals.
Now, Romano has claimed that the Gunners are planning to tie Emile Smith Rowe down to a contract until 2026.
Arsenal hoping to tie Hale End graduate down to long-term deal
Smith Rowe is one of the best players to graduate from the Hale End setup in recent years.
Alongside Bukayo Saka, the 20-year-old playmaker has cemented his place in Arteta’s starting XI.
Smith Rowe had to bide his time at the Emirates Stadium, with just two Premier League appearances prior to last Christmas.
However, Arteta finally named him in the starting XI against Chelsea on Boxing Day – his full Premier League debut – and the rest is history.
Smith Rowe has made 45 senior appearances for Arsenal, of which 33 came last season, and has registered seven goals and seven assists.
