EMILE SMITH ROWE is on the verge of leaving Arsenal to join RB Leipzig on loan for the rest of the season.

The 18-year-old midfielder is flying to German to undergo a medical after the two clubs agreed terms on the switch.

Under-17 World Cup winner Smith Rowe has been promised match action by Leipzig and he has been given the blessing of Gunners boss Unai Emery to continue his development abroad.

Leipzig are fourth in the Bundesliga and have held an interest in the teen starlet for a number of months.

But they have finally made their move after Arsenal secured the services of Denis Suarez on-loan from Barcelona.

The Spaniard’s arrival would have limited the opportunities at the Emirates for the youngster as the North London club attempt to secure a return to the Champions League.

Smith Rowe is viewed as a future star by the Gunners, but they believe some match action in Germany’s top-flight will help him to fulfil his huge potential.

He joins fellow Arsenal ace Reiss Nelson in the Bundesliga, with the attacker impressing impressing hugely on his season-long loan at Hoffenheim.

Smith Rowe has broken in to the first-team set-up at the Gunners this season.

He has scored three times in six appearances but has failed to add to his tally since being sidelined with a hip injury in November.
