The attack-minded midfielder operates centrally but can also be deployed on the left.

Smith Rowe, 19, has 15 appearances for the Gunners under his belt, those coming in the Europa League, Premier League and cup competitions. He has scored four goals.

He began 2019 on a loan spell with Red Bull Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

Town boss Cowley said: “We’re delighted to complete the loan move to bring Emile to the Club today, as it’s the culmination of an ongoing process that began in early November.

“Nicky and I spent a week at Arsenal in the summer and Emile is a player that we know well. We’ve got some good relationships with the club and we’re very appreciative of them loaning us one of their very best young players.

“Emile will give us the creative link that we’ve been missing. He can play in a range of attacking positions and he can speed up our play.

"We’re really looking forward to working with him.”
