Luton tipped to be in pursuit of young Arsenal midfielder
Luton have been linked with yet another move in the transfer window, this time for young Arsenal midfielder Matt Smith.
The 21-year-old came through the ranks at the Gunners academy, playing in the U18 Premier League and Premier League 2 Division One, also making two appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy.
He then headed to Swindon for the first half of the 2020-21 season, featuring 27 times and scoring twice.
Smith finished the campaign at Charlton Athletic, with eight outings, while last term, joined Doncaster Rovers for the season, playing 49 times in all competitions as the club were relegated to League Two.
He has yet to play for the Arsenal senior team, although is currently on tour with the club in Germany after playing the second half of Mikel Arteta’s side’s behind-closed-doors pre-season friendly 5-1 win over Ipswich Town this week.
The Sun are reporting that the Hatters and Championship rivals Millwall are interested in signing the youngster, although Town boss Nathan Jones has already made seven additions this summer, including bolstering his midfield ranks by bringing in Derby County’s Louie Watson and ex-Sheffield United player Luke Freeman.
