Emile Smith Rowe is being tipped to leave Arsenal to join RB Leipzig on loan on transfer deadline day.

According to the Independent, Emile Smith Rowe has already travelled to Germany to complete his switch to Leipzig.

Smith Rowe, 18, has scored twice for Arsenal in the Europa League this season. However the teenager has failed to gain minutes in the Premier League.

By switching to Leipzig, the young English midfielder is set to play a lot more. As reported in the Independent:

The 18-year-old has been assured first team action by Leipzig and Unai Emery and Arsenal have given their full blessing to Smith Rowe, who is seen as a long-term star at the club.

Leipzig, who are currently fourth in the Bundesliga, have long held an interest in Smith Rowe but any decision to allow the teenager to leave was subject to Arsenal confirming the signing of Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona.
