Campbell says Arsenal needs another player who can “play across the front line.”

Arsenal idol, Kevin Campbell, believes they need to sign another attacking player who can play across the frontline in this campaign.

The Gunners have bolstered their squad with some impressive players in this window, with Gabriel Jesus impressing in their attack.

They also convinced Eddie Nketiah to sign a new deal, and the striker has also been scoring the goals they expect from him.

Having these two players mean scoring goals will likely not be a problem for Mikel Arteta’s side in this campaign.

However, Campbell still believes they need an attacker who can play in all the forward positions in their system, just like Liverpool has.

He tells Football Insider: “I would sign a versatile forward who can play across the front line.

“This is where Liverpool and Man City have got it right in my opinion. They have interchangeable pieces up top.

“If [Mohamed] Salah, [Luis] Diaz and [Darwin] Nunez don’t play, you have [Diogo] Jota, [Roberto] Firmino and Harvey Elliott. There is interchangeable pieces.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus will bring a lot of goals to our team, but relying solely or too much on him could be counter-productive because teams could easily focus on the Brazilian in their defending.

However, if other attackers can score, we will be unpredictable, which is an easy recipe for success.

  1. MAKES SENSE, what Campbell says, but wishing is not the same as getting. At least not on any budget we may offer!

  2. Campbell is right we need another up front player in the form of a winger or a target man to offer something a little different to what we now have.

    A foward that can plays across the front would also enable us to rotate effectively.

  3. A RW to complete the puzzle and create a fierce rivalry just like that of ESR and martinelli……cody gakpo and olise,my top candidates.

  4. For once, I agree with KC. I’ve been advocating something similar since hearing that Balogun was going to be loaned out. We’re pretty thin up front in terms of depth. Cody Gakpo would fit the bill nicely. He’s versatile, talented and available at a reasonable price.

  5. Coady Gakpo, Dominic Calvert, Dembele (Lyon), Rashford, Antonio, Jimenez.

    I have a feeling Arsenal will sign one more player and loan another.

  6. Arsenal should go sign Domnic Calvert lewis. He’s perfect for what we want as a plan be. He also works hard off the ball

  7. I thought Arsenal was going to buy Nkukou who can handle any thing if it comes to front area but they didnt pick that enterest so there we are now crying for some one like him. for Sakas back-up we have to clear one of the two [Pepe and Nelson] before we bring any other wise im seeing a headack in handling that but Cambel has made a big point here which we must adress in this season if we are to contend the presure .
