Mikel Arteta addresses unexpected speculation linking Emile Smith Rowe to West Ham.

At the age of 23, he made a significant impact in the 2021/22 season, securing 10 goals in 33 Premier League outings after being bestowed with the prestigious number 10 shirt at the club.

However, Smith Rowe’s progress was hindered by surgery for a groin injury, impeding his ability to capitalize on the success of his breakthrough campaign. Subsequently, he has faced challenges in regaining a spot in Arsenal’s lineup. In the current season, he has played a mere 116 minutes of Premier League football, initiating only one game for the team that finished as runners-up last year. Additionally, the club’s substantial investment in Kai Havertz during the summer has heightened competition for Smith Rowe.
