Aston Villa planning third bid for Emile Smith Rowe
Aston Villa are considering another renewed offer for Arsenal playmaker Emile Smith Rowe, The Mirror reports.
The 20-year-old has two years remaining on his Gunners contract, and talks over a renewal are ongoing.
The Gunners are confident that he will stay, but Villa are not prepared to give up in their pursuit of the playmaker.
They recently failed with bids of £25m and £30m for Smith Rowe, and they are now planning a third transfer offer.
The Midlands outfit will offer around £32.5m for the attacker, but the Gunners are expected to reject the proposal.
Smith Rowe will report for pre-season in the next couple of days, and it is claimed that an extension could be sorted soon.
As per Fabrizio Romano, the club graduate could put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract with a significant salary increase.
The club have also opened talks over a new deal with Reiss Nelson, but the 21-year-old is reluctant to consider the proposal.
He barely played for them last season. He is reportedly looking for a permanent move away from the club this summer.
