Mikel Arteta issues Emile Smith Rowe injury update as Folarin Balogun hints at Arsenal exit

Here is the Arsenal morning digest for Monday, March 1st.

Smith Rowe injury update

Mikel Arteta has admitted that he is concerned about Emile Smith Rowe after he was withdrawn from the victory over Leicester City through injury.

The 20-year-old was replaced by Martin Odegaard in the 42nd minute due to hip problem, something the midfielder has suffered from previously, and Arteta spoke about his setback after the game.

“Yeah I’m concerned because for Emile to come out and say I cannot continue playing it should be something. It’s something related to his hip, I don’t know how bad it is but he was in a good place after the game.”

Arsenal starlet Folarin Balogun has dropped a major hint that he is set to leave the club this summer upon the expiration of his contract.

Campbell excited by transfer links

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has expressed his excitement with the transfer links stating the Gunners are eyeing Norwich City’s Max Aarons and Brighton’s Tariq Lamptey.

Right-back Hector Bellerin is reportedly set to leave the club at the end of the season and Campbell likes the idea of bringing in one of the two English talents as his replacement.

“I think both Lamptey and Aarons are good players. They each have their pluses and minus were they to come to Arsenal,” he told Football Insider.

“I am not so sure if we need to sign a big name right-back though, even if Bellerin leaves. If he signed either of those players it would be great for Arsenal but I am unsure if that is what the manager would want to do.”
