Arsenal are hoping to raise funds in order to comply with Financial Fair Play with a number of sales expected to be pushed through before the end of the week.

The Times claim Arsenal have offered Smith Rowe to several unnamed Premier League sides and are looking for a fee of around £40m.

Smith Rowe broke into the Arsenal first-team in 2020 and following speculation over his long-term future in north London, signed a new five-year deal in 2021.

After struggling with a groin problem at the start of last season, the 23-year-old underwent surgery which saw him miss the first half of the 2022-23 campaign as Arsenal challenged Manchester City for the title.

Following his return to the squad in January, he failed to start a single league game in the second half of the season.

Smith Rowe has remained on the bench in Arsenal’s opening three games of the new campaign, with Fabio Vieira coming on and impressing ahead of him in the weekend draw against Fulham.
