RB Leipzig will lend the English U17 World Champion Emile Smith-Rowe. The 18-year-old is committed by the FC Arsenal Premier League Club until the end of the season. This was confirmed by the club on Thursday.
“It is true that the player is in Leipzig,” Coach Ralf Rangnick had already said at a press conference this morning. The medical check is still missing, last documents should be signed and faxed.
The rental fee for the wingman should be up to about a million Run Euro. Smith-Rowe is considered a promising talent in England, but it was hardly enough for the first team of the Gunners this season.
The Bundesliga will probably not get a purchase option.
