Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe has spoken out on his breakthrough at Arsenal and outlined his plans for the remainder of the season. The 20-year-old has been impressive so far during this season as he has made 17 appearances in which he has scored 5 goals and provided 5 assists.
After his impressive performance for the Gunners, he became a favorite among supporters as many want to see him take the number 10 which has become vacant after Mesut Ozil left the club.
"I can't really described the feeling to be honest. Being an Arsenal fan from such a young age, getting an opportunity to put on the Arsenal shirt and step onto the pitch, there's really no better feeling for me," he told the club's YouTube channel.
"I've been at the club from a young age, watching the first-team, seeing magical goals and the link-up combination, I've always wanted to be a part of it. Growing up, I've always tried to do it in training and in matches as I was going through the academy."
Mikel Arteta's side have been linked with a summer transfer move for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, however, Smith Rowe can save the club millions and become their number 10 permanently.
He added: "I try to be free in my mind. There's one thing I do, wearing my socks really low, I feel like that gives me freedom. I don't know why, it's just a little superstition.
"We've all just been clicking together, I feel like we've come together so much stronger and we're really moving forward as a team. It's not just the players who start, it's the players that come on, doing a job for the team, and if we keep doing this, keep believing, we'll go and carry on winning games.
"This season, I'm getting a run of games. I need to keep working hard, keep training hard and listening to the manager. For me, it's just about progression. The main thing is winning for the team but for me, I just want to keep making the manager happy."
