Aston Villa are having a great season as they are currently in the second spot in the Premier League table. Unai Emery's side is looking to strengthen their squad by signing new players in the January transfer window. However, the same cannot be said about Arsenal as the Gunners are struggling to find their feet after a fantastic start to the season. They were at the top of the league. But now, they find themselves in the third position in the Premier League table and knocked out of the FA Cup by the Premier League leaders Liverpool. Thus, Mikel Arteta wants to have funds to sign a new striker as soon as possible with Ivan Toney being the main target for the Gunners. As per the latest Arsenal transfer news on CaughtOffside, the Gunners are ready to sell Emile Smith Rowe to Aston Villa to fund Ivan Toney's move.
Arsenal Transfer news: Emile Smith Rowe to Aston Villa for £50m
As per the reports from CaughtOffside, Emile Smith Rowe to Aston Villa transfer is looking very likely. Smith Rowe failed to impress Mikel Arteta and because of that, he finds himself on the sideline. Arsenal's attacking midfielder wants a move and the Gunners want to offload him because they need funds for the transfer of Ivan Toney. Financial Fair Play rules will prevent Arsenal from making a substantial move to sign Brentford's striker. That is why Mikel Arteta is looking to sell players to gather funds to sign Ivan Toney. Aston Villa wanted to sign Emile Smith Rowe previously but failed to land the player. Arsenal will demand £50m from Villa for Smith Rowe and, as per the latest Arsenal transfer news, use that money to sign a prolific striker preferably Ivan Toney.
