Aston Villa are lining up a second bid for Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, according to John Percy of The Telegraph.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa supporters have shared their thoughts on the transfer update on social media.
Villa had a £25m bid rejected by the Gunners for the 20-year-old last week, as revealed by David Ornstein of The Athletic.
Would Emile Smith-Rowe be a good signing for Aston Villa?
Ornstein suggested that Arsenal have no interest in selling the attacking midfielder, but it seems as if Villa are plotting another offer.
Percy claims that Villa believe a possible deal is worth exploring and see Smith Rowe alongside Emiliano Buendia and Ollie Watkins in a front three, with club captain Jack Grealish as a number 10.
Villa fans react
@villareport shared Percy’s update on Smith Rowe on Twitter. These Villa fans were delighted at the news, with one describing a possible deal as ‘tasty’.
“Crown us champions”
“would be tasty”
“On my knees”
“That would be quite something”
“Oh… love to see it”
