According to a report via Football.London claims former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is planning on signing Emile Smith Row to Monaco on loan as the youngster continues to impress.
It is understood Henry has been monitoring Smith Rowe for a number of months and “It is understood one of the first calls Henry made on getting his first managerial job was to check on Smith-Rowe’s availability, and a January move has not been ruled out.”, the Daily Star claims.
Smith Rowe earned the attention of Gunners fans and Unai Emery during their pre-season tour of Singapore – where he netted against Atletico Madrid.
Smith Rowe has been given three first-team appearances as a reward this season and netted his first professional goal against Qaragab in the Europa League earlier this month.
Smith Rowe is likely to be given another first team outing during their Carabao Cup tie with Blackpool on Wednesday night – with fellow teenagers Joe Willock, Julio Pleguezuelo and Eddie Nketiah also hoping to earn a place in Emery’s plans.
The 18-year-old is certainly one of the brightest lights to come through the Arsenal academy in recent years and now he is targeting copying Belgian star De Bruyne.
