And Arsenal insist that the 20-year-old is not for sale at any price.

The Gunners also want to tie Smith Rowe down to a new deal with the player entering his final two years on his current contract.

But Arsenal’s strong stance hasn’t put Aston Villa off in their pursuit for Smith Rowe.

And according to the Express and Star, Villa will launch a second bid as they look to add to their already impressive attacking options.

Smith Rowe enjoyed a good breakout season in the first team, scoring four goals and providing seven assists across all competitions last season.

And with Jack Grealish reportedly a target of Premier League champions Manchester City in a potential £100m bid – Smith Rowe could be an ideal replacement.

But Villa are determined to keep their star man.

Dean Smith has already added Emiliano Buendia to his attacking ranks for a club-record fee of £38m.

And Villa have re-signed Ashley Young for free, after the 35-year-old left Serie A champions Inter Milan.

Aston Villa are not the only club interested in Smith Rowe, Spanish giants Real Madrid are also interested in the 20-year-old.

And Los Blancos reportedly asked about Smith Rowe as part of a potential deal for Arsenal to sign Martin Odegaard.
