Sol Campbell has revealed who he believes could help Arsenal challenge for the title next season, in the belief that a top defender and top attacker need to be prioritised.
Our side has a hugely important weekend ahead, with a place in the top-four up for grabs for two of us, Man City and Liverpool.
We fell way out the race for the Premier League title this term, and will be keen for some strong additions to assure that are back challenging again next season.
Campbell has now named two defenders in Virgil Van Dijk and Harry Maguire for the defensive additoin, before naming three attacking targets.
He told the Daily Mail: ‘There’s been talk of [Karim] Benzema to Arsenal for a while. The manager Arsene knows him pretty well. I think he would definitely make a fantastic addition.
‘His movement, his strength, his experience in big games for European and domestic would be vital for them. I think they need someone who’s got a bit of nous and scoring prowess in front of goal.’
He added: ‘Up front, Griezmann is definitely someone who could make a huge difference with his scoring prowess and his movement. He’s done fantastic for his country and nearly won the European Championship.
‘I think the big price-tag might be a hurdle, but if he (Wenger) can sell a couple of players and push the boat out to £85million, he will definitely make a huge difference.’
‘And also going back up-front, I think the new guy on the block in Monaco, Mbappe. Bags of confidence, he reminds me… he could even be the next Henry.
‘OK, he has got a long way to go for that but he’s showing potential that maybe if you wait two, three years he might cost just a bit too much as time goes on.
‘So for me, the art of deal-making in players is catch them young and have that nous to think this guy is going to be the next best thing. You wait too long and it’s costing too much money.’
Could Arsenal really sign any of these attackers? Is Van Dijk a realistic target?
