Arsenal legend and new Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco manager Thierry Henry has contacted his former club over a possible loan deal for youngster Emile Smith Rowe, according to an exclusive report on Caught Offside.
The young midfielder has made an incredible rise into the Arsenal senior team this season under Unai Emery and managed to net his first senior goal for the club in the Europa League group stage clash against Qarabag.
Emile is highly-rated in north London, and it is understood that Unai isn’t keen on allowing the young player to leave on loan.
Henry has identified the 18-year-old ace as a target and wants to make him one of his first signings as a coach.
French boss is looking to use his connections at Gunners to help him recruit players on loan for AS Monaco, who have made a poor start to the season.
Emile looks likely to play a considerable amount of senior-team matches for the Gunners this campaign so a loan move away can’t be expected to be made in an effort to gain more minutes.
