After an impressive performance during the pre-season tour, Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal.

This new deal is coming just after one year he signed his first professional deal at the club.

The 18-year-old has proven himself as one of the Arsenal’s brightest young stars during the pre-season tour of Singapore, where he netted a goal in a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.

The playmaker has been shining in the Gunners youth setup and was a key player in the Under-18s run to the FA Youth Cup Final.

“It feels great for me,” Smith-Rowe said as quoted in Standard Uk.
