Arsenal Star Emile Smith Rowe: “Why I Turned Down Tottenham Hotspur”

Posted by

Emile Smith Rowe, an Arsenal youngster, has disclosed that he got an offer from Tottenham Hotspur but turned it down.

Smith Rowe said that he was once offered the chance to switch from the red to the white side of north London by arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur while on England duty after his first call-up to the senior national squad. He insisted, though, that he is an Arsenal fan and that he has never considered leaving..

“Tottenham wanted me when I was 15 or 16 but, as an Arsenal fan, I was never interested,” Smith Rowe said.

“I joined Arsenal at 10 and I was determined to make the grade at my club.”

Smith Rowe had a breakout season in 2021, appearing on a regular basis for Mikel Arteta’s side and earning the number 10 shirt in the summer. The Croyden-born midfielder even scored against Tottenham in the North London Derby earlier this season.
