Chelsea to make late bid for Arsenal midfielder Smith Rowe


As the transfer season closes, Chelsea are likely to make a move for England and Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.

According to sources, the Blues have put the 23-year-old on a shortlist of attacking targets that includes the Barcelona combo of Ferran Torres and Raphina.

The West London side have already spent around £350 million on players this summer, including a British record fee for Moises Caicedo and other players such as Lesley Ugochukwu and Romeo Lavia.

Although there are no official talks between both clubs, Smith Rowe is reportedly interested in leaving the Gunners after failing to play a single minute in Arsenal’s opening three EPL games of the season.

Smith Rowe has had limited game time following a groin injury he suffered at the start of the 2022–23 season.
