Fabrizio Romano given an update on Emile smith Rowe, strongly been linked with a move away from the Emirates

Emile Smith Rowe has been strongly linked with a move to Newcastle ahead of the January transfer window.

The likes of Aston Villa and West Ham have been linked, but it’s Newcastle who continue to be mentioned in connection with Smith Rowe recently.

But Romano has claimed that Newcastle are yet to firm up their winter transfer plans until they know what their Champions League group stage qualification status is, that he’s actually not aware of any concrete negotiations between the two parties just yet.

Romano shared what he knows about Smith Rowe.

“This (Smith Rowe) is a name that keeps coming up, but again I’m not aware of any concrete talk at this stage with Newcastle, let’s see closer to the January window. As I always mentioned, Newcastle are not advancing on any signing now as it’s crucial for them to understand if they will be in UCL in the second part of the season before moving,” Romano wrote on caught offside.
