Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Arsenal ace Emile Smith Rowe in recent days.
And, as to be expected, a number of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to the transfer news on social media.
According to Mike McGrath of The Telegraph, Villa hold an interest in the 20-year-old while his new deal with the Gunners is yet to be tied up.
Do you think Villa have a chance of signing Smith Rowe?
Yes, we're as big as Arsenal!
Not a chance!
Smith Rowe established himself as a regular in Mikel Arteta’s side in the second half of the 2020/21 campaign, making 33 senior appearances in all competitions.
His current contract at the Emirates runs until 2023, and it seems as if Villa are looking at the attacking midfielder as a possible summer addition.
McGrath adds that Villa have also considered Norwich’s Emi Buendia, but Smith Rowe appears to be a new name on the club’s summer wishlist.
Villa fans react
@villareport shared the news on Twitter on Tuesday evening. This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply, with one describing Smith Rowe as ‘class’.
“After what Arsenal fans have been saying about Grealish, this would be absolutely hilarious get him in”
“This would be hilarious for so many reasons.”
“oh my god”
