Ex-Gunner pinpoints where Arsenal needs to strengthen

Kevin Campbell has named the positions Arsenal needs to strengthen in the winter transfer window.

The Gunners have been in fine form in recent weeks and have ended this year inside the top four.

Next month offers them the chance to strengthen their squad and have a better end to this season.

The current team looks complete, with the likes of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli in top shape.

However, former Arsenal man, Campbell believes the Gunners still need to strengthen their midfield and attack next month if the club can support Mikel Arteta with funds.

Asked which position Arsenal should bolster, he tells Football Insider: “Striker and central midfield – no doubt.

“Those are the two positions where Arsenal are going to be a bit light in the next couple of months.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

The first half of this season has shown that this team can achieve its goals if Arteta is given the funds to sign his preferred players.

It is hard to sign an excellent player in the winter transfer window, but there are exceptions to every rule, and we could get our preferred targets if we offer enough money.

Hopefully, we can continue our fine form regardless of what happens in the market next month.

    While I think we may bring in a central midfielder, perhaps on loan, the matter of an upgrade at C.F. Is unlikely to happen until the summer window.

      Exactly

  2. Longbenark says:

    Get Wijnaldum on loan,

    A midfield of Partey-Wijnaldum-Odegaard /Smith-Rowe would be great,

    While Partey is away at AFCON, we could have

    Wijnaldum-Odegaard-Lokonga.

    If at season’s end AFC were to finish outside of the top six and fail again to qualify for Europe, these are the top 10 excuses we will be reading on this site.
    1. Blame Kroenke – for not giving funds to sign another striker and midfielder in January.
    2. Blame AFCON-for the loss of players.
    3. Blame Edu for not signing new players in Jan.
    4. Blame Auba for disciplinary record (alleged).
    5. Blame Laca for failing to accept the 1-year deal.
    6. Blame the pandemic.
    7. Blaming the young squad.
    8. Blame the tight schedule.
    9. Blame senior Arteta.
    10. And of course, blame the delusional fans for being unrealistic, expecting too much too soon.

    Not sure though, if they were listed in the right order?

    It makes zero sense to have Partey and Elneny off at Afcon…. AND LOAN OUT AMN at the same time. Its just not a smart thing to do… UNLESS there is a CM on his way. We have just Sambi + Xhaka and we will need at least one more. At least. Renato Sanchez/Nevez/Bissouma.
    Striker situation – I think loan/sell Auba is a must. If Nkettieh doesnt sign da ting he should be sold for whatever we can get.
    Laca has to stay until end of season. I wouldnt mind offering him another season or 2 but at reduced wages. Balogun needs a loan move. I would suggest Norwich. Their strikers are crap.
    So we would need a new striker. I think Isaak would be great. And another one if Laca/Nkettieh dont sign.
