EPL: Aston Villa are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi.

Emile Smith-Rowe, Arsenal's attacking midfielder, has grown dissatisfied with his lack of game time under Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium and wishes to leave, according to British journalist Chris Wheatley.

The forwards wishes to rejoin Arsenal's rivals Aston Villa and re-join his former manager, Unai Emery.

Smith-Rowe had 10 goals and two assists in 33 appearances for the Gunners last season but has yet to make a start this season.

Although the youngster has been injured a couple of times earlier in the season, he is still unhappy with his non-involvement.

“There’s absolutely truth in Villa’s interest in Smith Rowe. Unai Emery’s a big admirer of Emile Smith Rowe,” he told The Chris Wheatley Show.

“I know he’s disappointed with his lack of first-team opportunities.

“So yeah, Smith Rowe is wanted by Aston Villa. I think it’s a move that he would certainly consider because it’s a chance to rejuvenate his career.”
