Some Arsenal fans react as Aston Villa make Smith Rowe a top target

Some Arsenal fans were reacting after a report emerged claiming Aston Villa still have Emile Smith Rowe as one of their top targets.

According to The Athletic, the Croydon-born youngster is the club’s top target for the number 10 position. The news comes after the Villains had two bids rejected for the 20-year-old.

The move followed what appeared to be a lack of movement in contract talks between Arsenal and the youth product.

However, Fabrizio Romano has moved to allay fears, claiming a verbal agreement has been reached between the two parties.
