On transfer deadline day, RB Leipzig have signed Emile Smith Rowe on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season. The England U19 international, who has scored three goals in six appearances this season, will wear the number 18 shirt.
The 18-year-old midfielder has risen through the ranks at the Arsenal academy, making his senior debut for the club this season. He has scored in the Europa League and EFL Cup this season for the Gunners, as well as making several appearances for the Arsenal U23s team.
