Arsenal fans have told Aston Villa to keep their hands on Emile Smith Rowe amid new claims they are considering another bid for the Gunners ace.
Villa has reportedly made a £ 25million offer for the talented striker as they look to add to the catches of Emi Buendia and Ashley Young.
But Arsenal refused with the Gunners trying to get the 20-year-old to sign a new improved long-term contract.
New claims have emerged that Villa is ready to test the Gunners’ resolve again for Smith Rowe who scored four goals and eight assists in 33 appearances last season.
And as you might expect, it didn’t go well at the Emirates who have already lost to Villa when Buendia signed.
Here’s what Arsenal fans had to say.
AV: “The fact that Aston Villa is ready to offer a £ 30million to a 20-year-old with a year of contract remaining just after signing Buendia says two things:
“(1) Their owners are more ambitious than us.
“(2) The ESR will be worth three times as much in three years.”
Peter Kanyi: What part of IT ISN’T FOR SALE don’t they understand (AVFC)? “
Aiden: “Ah let it go, he’s not going anywhere.”
Theo Samuels: “If that happens we should drop an offer for Grealish, see how they like him.”
Dan Dunham: “Don’t think I would ever forgive Arsenal if they got rid of ESR.”
Jacob: “He’s not going anywhere, these people need to calm down.”
Felix: “Pushing Arsenal to their limits.”
GM 35: “The Buendia deal really got them up to speed. “
Villa’s interest in Smith Rowe comes as ex-Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair has said he could be a viable replacement for Jack Grealish if he leaves B6 this summer.
“I’ve said it before about Smith Rowe,” he said.
“He reminds me of Paul Merson. Before the ball gets into him, he’s looking to play it around the corner, the first time around, then chase it and join us.
“I think he might be a player who could come in, if Grealish was going to develop his game. Start playing Premier League football and do yourself a lot of good. “
