Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter en masse to celebrate Emile Smith Rowe’s signing of a new long-term deal.
Smith Rowe’s appearance was a rare positive in a season Arsenal could forget the last time.
The Gunners’ faithful will hope that the ‘Croydon De Bruyne’ can reach its potential and develop into a Premier League star.
However, for a moment at least, there were fears that he might be scared of disembarking this summer and signing for Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The athlete reported that Villa had placed a £ 30 million bid for Smith Rowe earlier this summer, but Arsenal did not budge.
It is now clear why Arsenal were so against the idea of selling the 20-year-old as well, as Smith Rowe’s new long-term deal was announced today.
As you’d expect, it brings a big smile on the faces of many Arsenal fans who have taken to Twitter to celebrate the news that he will stay close.

The league isn’t ready for The Smith.
Heard he was going to score a hat trick on Villa and do a knee slide, madness is approaching pic.twitter.com/rHOweNVeFV

Reminds me of Dennis Bergkamp, the man who made me, a South African, fall in love with the London arsenal. Make your story, young man. I admire you
