Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, the club have confirmed officially, thus ending the speculation about his near future at a stroke.

Smith Rowe was offered a place in the Arsenal Academy at the age of 10, and his progress was often praised by the people who worked with him between then and now. Having risen through the youth ranks, he had loan spells with RB Leipzig and Huddersfield at a time when his development required regular first-team football, and he was finally given a place in Mikel Arteta’s squad last summer.

Midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga is set to follow from Anderlecht, while there’s reportedly still a lot of work to do regarding Brighton and Hove Albion defender Ben White. Arsenal have been credited with interest in Euro winner Manuel Locatelli of Sassuolo, but they face competition from Juventus and the Italy international is believed to prefer a move to Turin.

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by Scottish side Hibernian in the opening match of the 2021 pre-season at the Easter Road in Edinburgh. Naturally, nothing can be deduced about the way the team will be set up next season so early in the summer, and the hope is merely that manager Mikel Arteta and his staff have taken away their own conclusions from the match to help them choose the right paths going forward.

According to James McNicholas of The Athletic, Arsenal’s shopping list for the upcoming summer transfer window is quite extensive. The club are on the lookout for defenders to fill all roles across the back line, central midfielders and No 10s.

As for the latter, it’s not exactly a secret that the Gunners are working hard on finding an agreement with Real Madrid about a permanent transfer of Martin Odegaard; the 22-year-old Norway international remains the top priority. Manager Mikel Arteta is believed to be impressed not only by his playing qualities, both technical and tactical, but also by his character and marks of a potential leader of the team.

Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion by 3-1 at the Emirates on Sunday, condemning the Baggies to a return to the Championship this summer and making sure Sam Allardyce fails for the first time in his mission to keep a team in the top tier. Emile Smith Rowe got on the end of a low cross from Bukayo Saka to open the scoring in the 29th minute, and Nicolas Pepe doubled the Gunners’ lead six minutes later with a fine strike after cutting in from the right attacking flank. The visitors got some hope of avoiding defeat back after Matheus Pereira made a good run through the middle and fired past Bernd Leno in the 67th, but Willian had the final word with a nicely hit free-kick just before the end.

It’s been a while since Arsenal had what can be universally described as a good season. Though many expected plenty of positives from the first whole campaign of Mikel Arteta in charge, it hasn’t really been the case. The team are sitting in 10th place in the Premier League, and have been watching the Champions League on TV for four years. Reaching UEFA’s elite competition through top-four placement is practically mission impossible, but the Europa League can still provide the path to the desired destination – providing Arsenal win it, of course.
