Kevin Campbell has backed Arsenal’s pursuit of Kyle Walker-Peters, and he believes the full-back will be a good buy.
The defender has developed into one of the finest players around at Southampton after starting his career at Tottenham.
He has been impressive for them and even earned a call-up to the England national team.
He is adept at playing on both wings, knows how to pass and to cross. These attributes will make him a key contributor to Arsenal if he joins them.
Campbell believes he has proven his worth at Southampton, and he can make an impact if he moves to the Emirates, but he has to put aside his Spurs affiliations to complete the transfer.
He tells Football Insider: “He got a few opportunities at Spurs but we didn’t really see the best of him. But now he’s playing week-in, week-out – he looks like a really good addition to that Southampton squad.
“He can play left or right, he’s a good attacker and a good passer – he’s a real threat going forward.
“£30m is cheap money for an England international. He’d have to put his Spurs ties aside to come and join Arsenal – but he’s a very good player.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Walker-Peters can do a great job for us, and he might be the perfect backup to Takehiro Tomiyasu at the Emirates.
However, a move for him could be complicated if he decides he doesn’t want to join because of his history with Spurs.
If he doesn’t mind, then we can add him to our squad.
