Aston Villa have reignited its interest in securing Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, following a previously rejected £30m offer.

Under the keen watch of Unai Emery, Villa’s manager who previously introduced Smith Rowe to top-flight football at Arsenal, the Midlands club is closely monitoring the 23-year-old’s situation.

Despite his significant potential, Smith Rowe has found game time limited this season, starting only two league matches due to injuries.

With Arsenal reportedly considering offers for the midfielder, Villa is poised to make a move, aiming to bolster their squad with Smith Rowe’s talents, according to The Yorkshire Post.

Emery’s prior connection with the player at Arsenal adds a personal touch to Villa’s renewed interest, setting the stage for a potential reunion at Villa Park.

There have been a numerous of players linked with a move to Villa Park recently, despite the club’s financial challenges. As we reported yesterday Aston Villa are interested in Barcelona winger Dani Rodriguez.
