Former Arsenal defender names centre back the Gunners should try to sign

Sol Campbell has backed Arsenal to sign Conor Coady from Wolves as the Gunners continue rebuilding their team.

We expect Mikel Arteta to make some new signings when the transfer window reopens.

David Luiz is leaving the Emirates on the expiry of his contract and the Brazilian defender would need replacing.

This has made signing a new centre-back a priority for the Gunners and they have been linked with a few good ones.

Apart from Coady, they have also been linked with a move for the likes of Jules Kounde and Ben White.

Campbell says several players will deliver if they joined the Gunners and he named Coady as one player who has done well enough to deserve a move to the Emirates.

He praised the former Liverpool man who has been at Wolves since 2015 as a player who has been in fine form in the Premier League and Arsenal should consider signing him.

Campbell said via the Daily Star: “There’s a lot of players out there who can fit the Arsenal mould. Conor Coady is a good player.

“He’s at a good club now in Wolves, but he’s actually someone I’d be looking at for Arsenal this summer.”

    Sorry to disagree with a guy who was a very fine CB but I do not share his views on Coady, nor do I consider it appropriate for us to sign another centre back.Having watched Mavroponas perform very well for Greece against Norway there is a case for him to be given a chance to prove himself with Arsenal which would increase to six, our collection of CBs. To me Coady is fortunate to be in the England squad for the Euros as he has had a poor season with Wolves and is very vulnerable in a flat back four system.On a brighter note I am delighted Southgate has brought in young Ben White who has been excellent for Brighton in a number of positions.

      I agree Grandad. We have a lot of CBs on the books already and potentially 2 very good ones in Saliba and Marvo.

      Really hope MA gives them a proper chance.

    Oh my world!!
    Our greats are giving me inexplicable Joy!!..😊🤗.
    Yesterday, Emmanuel Petit went alongside my Clamour for Wilfred Zaha!!..
    Today, Sol Campbell is rooting for a player I have said here, Arsenal needs, i.e. Conor Coady!!
    Coady will be a great signing for us, although Gabriel n Pablo Mari will have to be on d bench!!
    But Really, He’s a Fine defender, Aggressive, calculative, simple-minded n will partner his English counterpart, Rob Holding very well!!
    Great thoughts from Sol Campbell!!
    Wish we get..
    Bissouma
    Zaha
    Andre Silva or Raul Jimenez
    Conor Coady..😊😔

    My Dream Lineup for the coming season..

    Leno
    Bellerin. Holding Coady. Tierney
    Partey
    Bissouma Willock
    Saka. Andre Silva. Zaha
    (Raul Jimenez)

    Petit and Sol are Arsenal legends
    but thankfully there nowhere near
    the clubs recruitment team. Lol
    Zaha and Coady play for teams
    that accurately reflect there
    current talent level, middle table.

    Mavro and Pepe are respectively
    better players

      You compare Mavro n Pepe to EPL tested Players??
      How very funny..😏😄
      Coady has faced d likes of Rashford, Calvert-Lewin, Kane, Watkins Aubameyang, etc..
      Who has Mavro faced in his career??
      As for Nicholas Pepe, his 4 goals in d last two games has gotten some fans deceived, despite his being Woeful in d other 36..
      A good but Inconsistent Player!!

      1. ACE says:

        A good but inconsistent player is the
        Webster’s dictionary definition of
        Wilfred Zaha.

        It isnt Mavros fault that the
        collection of misfits making the
        decisions @ Arsenal seemingly
        are unwilling to give him a chance
        @ the Emirates

        He is more talented IMWO than
        Mari, Holding and Chanbers.
