Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract with us.
The 18-year-old was part of the first-team squad that travelled to Singapore for our pre-season tour and made his mark with a superb goal against Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup.
He also provided an assist for Alexandre Lacazette in our 5-1 win over PSG on Saturday.
The Hale End graduate joined us at the age of 10 and made 11 appearances for our under-23s last season and was also a regular for our under-18s.
He made his first appearance for the first-team earlier this month in the pre-season friendly against Boreham Wood in Unai Emery’s first match as head coach.
Emile is an England youth international was part of the team that won the FIFA Under-17 World Cup last year in India.
Emery said: “I am pleased with Emile’s contribution so far this pre-season. He is working very hard and has lots of potential. I look forward to working with him and the other young players and helping them to develop as Arsenal players.”
