Campbell urges Arsenal to sign PL star with uncertain future

Kevin Campbell has urged Arsenal Football Club to sign Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish this summer.

The England international has been an impressive performer throughout the last two seasons, and it is no surprise that his name is regular linked with moves to the bigger sides.

His agent Jonathon Barnett recently admitted to SNTV(via the FootballInsider) that he was unsure where his star would be playing football next season, which will no doubt add fire to the speculation, and Campbell wishes he could move to North London.

“I would love Arsenal to make a move for Grealish but I don’t think the club could afford him at the moment,” he told Football Insider.

“He has proved to be a world-class player this season. He is very consistent with his performances and he is only young. What a huge difference he has made to Aston Villa this year.

“I think any one of the big boys would look at him. I wouldn’t put it past Manchester City to sign him, even though they have a wealth of attacking talent. I could see him there.

“Listen, that would be making the strong stronger. It could be an embarrassment of riches. You have to keep strengthening. If you don’t, you are standing still and others will catch you.”

While Man City could appear a likely destination, they aren’t known for paying the bigger asking prices with the Villain’s unlikely to be short of offers this summer.

He would of course be welcome in North London, with him and Bukayo Saka appearing to already have a friendship from their time with the England squad.

Fielding Grealish and Saka either side of fellow Englishman Emile Smith Rowe would certainly be an exciting prospect ahead of the new season, but it remains to be seen whether our club would need to earn European football to tempt him away from Aston Villa this summer.

Would Grealish jump at the chance to join Arsenal?

    And pigs might fly!!

      Pundits never cease to amaze me, in the same way, why won’t we sign Haaland, Oblak and probably Mbappe. 🙄
      I hope he will lend us the money.

  2. DaJuhi says:

    No thanks. He will command way too much money, which can be spent more wisely.

    FREE Calhanoglu
    £30m De Paul
    £35m Buendia

    These are available players to bring in creativity and they have several good seasons behind them. Less than half the price Grealish would command.

      I’d take Calahnoglu what a player! So much energy and great passing and shooting

      1. Shortboygooner says:

        Would love to get him. I csnt see it happening but we can hope. Would be a real statement and I think he could play CAM as well as LAM.

        If the kreonkes did this it would make a huge difference

    I really like Jack Grealish but I’m sure he has high aspirations for himself, higher than AFC currently have for themselves anyway.

  4. Musembi says:

    No, please no. Thank you

    Our club is loans Afc and average cheap players,we need about 5 Quality EPL proven players . Buendia & Bissouma is somebody who I’d like to see sign, but at the same time the people who are going to oversee who’s coming in and who’s going out are unfortunately the same people who signed someone like Willian for three years.

    “Are we going to give those people the power to try to do this overhaul? I don’t trust them. It worries me.

    “As much as the manager is passionate and the players are working hard, I’m not sure I trust the people in charge to try and make stuff happen in the summer, to oversee that job. I don’t see them doing it.” 🤔 #Kroenkeout

    Have we got a spare 80 million?

  7. JanV says:

    Yeah, great!! And I also heard Messi might be available on a free.

  8. Marty says:

    Even if we did somehow get the funds to sign him would he choose to sign for us rather than almost every other club who would be interested in him, I think not unfortunately.

  9. mish says:

    should Kronke sign him, and four other players like a GK in the mold of Onana or Nick Pope, Wilfred Ndidi to pair Partey, Betrand , Patson Dhaka of salburg/Terem Moffi of Lorient or maybe Paul of Genk who is on 33 goals in 38 matches (these are exciting young strikers with eye for goals)..

    add Jack and toss in……Watford’s Troost Ekong to pair holding/gebby

    i am sure we will party

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      why not spend even more

      100m on Grealish

      100m on Zaha

      100m on Oblak

      200m on Haaland

      150m on Mbappe

      90m on Sacho

      640m spent…..fans and media will be very happy

      lots of intent shown…

    Anyone who believes, even for a milli second, that we have ANY chance of getting Grealish has serious perception problems!

    Such a ridicuous and fantasy comment from CAMPBELL, who IF he were in touch and a TRUE fan would know better than to utter such daft words!
