That’s according to a recent report from the Telegraph, who claims the Midlands club are looking to bolster their attacking options.

After recently forcing his way into the Gunners’ senior first-team, Smith Rowe has enjoyed an excellent rise in top-flight football.

Having made 34 senior appearances, in all competitions, for Mikel Arteta’s side during the most recent 2020-21 season, the young English midfielder directly contributed to an impressive 11 goals.

However, despite emerging as a bit of a fan favourite, bad news could be on the horizons for Gunners’ fans.

The Telegraph claim that despite Arsenal wanting to tie him down on a new contract, Smith Rowe has yet to put pen-to-paper – consequently, the midfielder is now attracting interest from elsewhere.

Villa is rumoured to be looking to recruit a long-term replacement for midfielder Ross Barkley, who failed to impress during his campaign on-loan from Chelsea.
