The former gunner fears that if he does not strengthen his squad this summer, his old ways will continue to decline.
Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has challenged the Gunners to prove their desire to stop talented youngsters like Emson Smith Roy from leaving the club.
Smith Rowe enjoyed a successful campaign at the Emirates Stadium last season, but has been the subject of constant interest from Austin Villa this summer.
The Gunners have already rejected two bids for the England Under-21 International, and Pett believes the club should do more to ensure that others do not try to move the move forward.
What did the stomach say?
Asnol’s eighth position last season means the North London club will lose European football for the first time in 25 years.
Petit, who was part of Arsenal’s double-winning team in 1997-98, is concerned about the club’s recent decline and believes the board needs to reaffirm its commitment to compete again at the top of the Premier League. Message should be sent.
“As a club, you need to show your players that you are ambitious,” he said. Metro
“In terms of improvement, competition and desire, it’s important to send them a signal. Weapons have been slipping on the table for five or six years.
“When will it end?” This means that if I am a weapons player, I will be very conscious about what the club is doing in the market, who are the new players, who are leaving the club, and finally I I will draw a conclusion.
If the club is spending money on good players with the role, it may indicate that they want to send a signal to the team that this season will be different from the last few seasons. That they want to go back to the previous level.
“Players will look at it and compare it with other teams, then come to a conclusion very easily. If Arsenal do not have a team to compete for Champions League positions, it will be the same as last year and the year before.
Pete Smith understands the state of behavior
Pett says England’s progress at Euro 2020 will also be on Smith Roy’s mind as he looks set to become the latest youngster to join Gareth Southgate’s youth squad in the near future.
As a result, the former French international will understand whether Smith Rowe was tempted to go to Villa Park.
“Emile Smith’s behavior is not stupid. They will be watching guys like Mason Mount, Phil Foden and Jack Gresh enjoy their football with the national team, all smiling on the pitch and relieved of the pressure and the ambitions of their clubs and the national team. ۔ Smith Roy would like to be the same.
He said the fact that Aston Villa are interested in him is not surprising as he avoided utility last year, this season was great for him.
He said that he has a lot of young players, all of whom are enjoying their football and Smith Roy will be well aware of it.
“He has some questions in mind and I hope the weapon gave him the answers he was expecting in terms of the transfer market and next season’s ambitions.
“If this is the season we’ve been seeing with weapons for the last two years, forget it. He will lose a lot of players at the end of the season.
