Arsenal supporters are in agreement about Emile Smith Rowe after the midfielder produced a moment of magic versus Hibernian.
The Gunners, who are currently into a huge summer period in terms of transfer dealings, kicked off their pre-season campaign with a trip to Scotland to face Hibs.
However, it was a poor start for Mikel Arteta ‘s side, with Martin Boyle handing the hosts a 21st-minute lead in Scotland, with Daniel MacKay doubling their advantage in the second period.
Nicolas Pepe then missed a penalty for Arsenal moments after Hibs’ second goal, but Emile Smith Rowe reduced the deficit on 82 minutes.
A fine ball from Hector Bellerin on the right-hand side was then converted in style by Smith Rowe to make it 2-1.
The 20-year-old has just under two years remaining on his contract at Arsenal and the club are looking to extend his deal this summer.
The Gunners are even more determined to sort the situation out, considering Aston Villa’s interest – with Dean Smith’s team bidding twice for the youngster, but having both turned down.
However, Villa are keen on making a third offer for the Arsenal starlet as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Arsenal fans have been reacting to Smith Rowe’s strike in Scotland and are all saying very similar things about his contract.
Smith Rowe revealed earlier this year that he is now fulfilling his dream of playing for the north London club.
He said to the club’s official website: “It’s great, from a young kid I’ve always wanted to play for this club.
“All the young players, it’s good for us to get opportunities so I’m really happy to be playing for this club.”
