West Ham have registered our interest in signing Arsenal attacker Emile Smith-Rowe this summer.

According to a report from Football Insider, Arsenal ace Emile Smith-Rowe is a target for West Ham in the summer transfer window.

The East London outfit were thought to be trying to include the 23-year-old Gunners star in Declan Rice’s move to the Emirates.

That obviously didn’t happen in the end, but it doesn’t mean that Hammers boss David Moyes has given up on Smith-Rowe.

The Arsenal ace is still a target for West Ham it seems…

West Ham could now make move to sign Emile Smith-Rowe for £40 million

Football Insider reckon that the Gunners forward is on the Hammers radar, and he could be sold for around £40 million.

Smith-Rowe could potentially be a game-changing signing for West Ham.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta once described Smith Rowe as an ‘incredible talent’ (talkSPORT). So it’s clear to see just how highly he is rated at Arsenal.

The 23-year-old is quite obviously an elite talent. He has exceptional technique, has pace and power to burn when running with the ball and has a real eye for goal.

However, there must be something up with him behind the scenes. Smith-Rowe barely played for Arsenal last season in the Premier League. Mikel Arteta gave him just 161 minutes (Transfermarkt).

It feels like he needs to leave Arsenal in order to get regular first-team football, and then he’ll undoubtedly prove his worth.

He would be a really exciting addition for West Ham but as funny as it sounds, I just don’t feel like we need him right now unless Moyes decides to get rid of Said Benrahma before the summer window closes.
