(Photo) Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe accidentally confirms change with fan selfie

Posted by

Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe appears to have inadvertently leaked his new shirt number after posing for a picture with a fan, reports The Sun.

Smith Rowe has been courted by Aston Villa in recent weeks, with The Athletic reporting that the bidding has gone as high as £30M, with Arsenal snubbing all approaches and insisting he’s not for sale.

It’s often unclear whether a player is ACTUALLY not for sale, or whether their club are just attempting to drive the price up, but we’ve been given a pretty strong indication that Smith Rowe will be sticking around at the Emirates.

As is reported by The Sun, Smith Rowe, who is partaking in Arsenal’s pre-season preparations, posed for a photo with a fan and can be seen with the number ’10’ printed on his tracksuit top.

The number ’10’ shirt was previously worn by Mesut Ozil before the German playmaker (finally) left Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Smith Rowe would be an obvious choice to inherit it, with the 20-year-old looking likely to be a mainstay in attacking midfield for Arsenal for years to come.

Arsenal are yet to officially confirm that Smith Rowe will be taking the shirt. This photo suggests that could happen in due course, however.
