Arsenal & star midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe are about to receive a THIRD offer from Aston Villa.
According to the Mirror, if Arsenal believed Aston Villa was merely testing the waters with Emile Smith Rowe, they now know the West Midlands club is serious about stealing its homegrown star after a second £30 million proposal.
The Villans have made the England Under-21 international one of their transfer targets in order to relieve talisman Jack Grealish of the creative burden.
Dean Smith wants more, and the club's billionaire owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are willing to back him and sporting director Lange. Emi Buendia has arrived from Norwich City in a £35 million move to help with that.
