Aston Villa showing interest in Emile Smithrowe; Arsenal to use West Ham interest in Smithrowe to purse a move for Ollie Watkins.

Indications from today’s report point to Aston Villa showing interest in Emile Smithrowe. Aston Villa have been chasing the Croydon born since he recovered from a long term injury.

The rumors have refused to go away, with Aston Villa reportedly exploring the possibility of a loan deal in the January transfer window.

They have now been linked with a summer move for the Arsenal midfielder who seems to have gone under the radar lately.

Smithrowe’s fitness has been a challenge for the better part of the last two years. When fit, it has been difficult to break into an Arsenal side that has been doing so well.

Can Arsenal use Aston Villa’s interest to pursue a move for Ollie Watkins?

Arteta has hinted at signing a striker in the summer in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Brentford game on Saturday.

Arsenal are set to prioritize the signing of a striker and Watkins could be a potential target. Signing Watkins from Aston Villa would take a significant investment as he is a key player for Aston Villa.

The Aston Villa forward has been in prolific form for the past few seasons. He has gone up another level this season either scoring or assisting 26 goals.

Arsenal can use Aston Villa’s interest in Smithrowe as a buffer to sweeten any deal for Watkins.

There is no doubt that Watkins would be interested in moving to Arsenal. The Gunners have been one of the form teams since the turn of the year, beating teams and setting records along the way.

Aston Villa showing interest in Emile Smithrowe would be good for both sides. Smithrowe gets game time while Watkin gets the big move that he deserves.
