Newcastle monitoring ‘special’ Arsenal player’s situation, considering January move

Newcastle United’s promising prospect Emile Smith Rowe, who is dissatisfied with the limited playing time he is receiving under Mikel Arteta, is keeping an eye on the situation at Arsenal.

According to a 90mins article on Emile Smith Rowe, the 23-year-old is not pleased with the amount of playing time he is currently receiving at Arsenal.

It has now got to the point where the England international is considering a move in January so that he can play his way back into Gareth Southgate‘s thoughts ahead of Euro 2024.

Smith Rowe started Arsenal’s Carabao Cup game midweek, but as played just nine minutes of Premier League football this season.

The midfielder ticks a lot of boxes for Eddie Howe, he’s young, English, already at Premier League and international standard but also with plenty left to improve.

Newcastle’s midfield is fairly stacked, but that may not put Howe off making a move in January as Smith-Rowe is a more attacking option than most of those who currently occupy the midfield for Newcastle.

However, the price has to be right. Being English and an Arsenal player, the price could end up being astronomical, but there’s a chance that Arsenal may see the benefit in letting Smith Rowe leave on loan for the second half of the season.

A loan move would actually be ideal for Newcastle, especially if they can insert an option to buy into the deal giving us the first crack in the summer if he proves to be successful.
