Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal
The attacking midfielder has been with Arsenal since the age of nine and progressed through the ranks at our Hale End academy, featuring for all our youth sides during his development with the club.
His development and hard work with our academy colleagues in recent years culminated with his big impact in the first team last season, making 33 appearances across all competitions.
To coincide with his new long-term contract, Gunners also reveal that Emile will wear our No 10 shirt for the 2021/22 season.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said: "As we all saw last season, Emile is an intelligent player with excellent ability.
"His sharpness on the turn and exceptional vision have already made him a key player for us. His attitude and willingness to learn have also been very impressive.
"I know the fans will join us in being delighted that Emile has committed his future to the club. We're now looking forward to helping him develop further and seeing him become even more important to the strong young team we're building."
