Arsenal reject second Aston Villa bid for Smith Rowe

Mon 28 June 2021 | 12:09

The bid was Villa’s second effort to sign the young playmaker, but it was rejected by the Gunners who are interested in keeping the 20-year-old.

Emile Smith Rowe

has attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs ahead of the next season. The 20-year-old was a key player for Mikel Arteta’s side in their 2020-21 campaign, where he featured in 20 league matches for the Gunners.

Aston Villa

made an initial bid of £25 million for Smith Rowe two weeks ago, but

Arsenal

made it clear that the player is not for sale. The Villa raised their initial bid by £5m, submitting an official bid of £30m for the English midfielder. However, their second offer was also rejected by the Gunners, who reiterated their stance that they are not interested in selling the 20-year-old.

It is unclear whether Aston Villa will continue their efforts to sign Smith Rowe. Arsenal are reportedly planning to sign a five-year deal with the midfielder. However, until an agreement is reached, interested clubs will try to prize the player away from the Emirates Stadium.
