Smith-Rowe has been a sensation in that Arsenal shirt this season and has full established himself as a player that is valuable to that first-team and that could help the club get back to the very top of the game.
The youngster is contracted to the Gunners until 2023 and there has been some talk that the club are struggling to open talks and get him signed up to a new contract, which of course, has led to speculation in the media that a few clubs in the Premier League are interested in a possible deal.
However, with the season coming towards a close, Arteta recently confirmed that the Arsenal are in talks with the players agents about a nice big new contract that he has earned after a brilliant season.
And Campbell praised the midfielder for his contributions and says he deserves a new deal: “Smith Rowe is the only one of the youngsters left that we need to sign,” he told Football Insider.
“Martinelli, Saka and Balogun have all signed. We just need Smith Rowe to put pen to paper and then we are in business.
“He definitely deserves a new deal after what he’s done this season. To get him tied down would be fantastic. He has proven himself this season. He is a great player.
“It would be perfect if we could get him on a long-term contract. Those four players are going to be massively influential at Arsenal in the coming years. I cannot think of many clubs that have four better youngsters.”
We are massive fans of the man and firmly believe this is a very good move from Arsenal.
