Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe is a major transfer target for Aston Villa this summer and they have already had a bid turned down by the Gunners for the 20-year-old. Earlier this month, Villa made a £25m bid for Smith-Rowe and it was swiftly rejected.
The latest media reports claimed that Aston Villa are set to make an increased bid for their transfer target. English publication Football Insider revealed that Villa are ready to offer £30m for Smith-Rowe. The expectation is that Arsenal will turn down the second bid just like they did with thefirst offer with the club keen to tie the England junior international to a new deal.
According to reports from France, Premier League club Arsenal have shown huge interest in signing French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga from Ligue 1 outfit Rennes and have expressed their desire in completing the deal as soon as the transfer window opens for business as well.

However, that is about to change with reports claiming that they will sign a lot of players in the summer.
One of the key areas they are said to be interested in bringing in reinforcements is the right-back position.
