Kevin Campbell says Arsenal don’t need La Liga attacker

Kevin Campbell is sceptical about Arsenal’s interest in Marco Asensio and says they have good attacking options at the club now.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move to the Emirates for much of the last few weeks as Arsenal prepares to bolster their squad with new players.

However, Mikel Arteta has some of the finest attacking players in his squad, considering the likes of Emile Smith Rowe, Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka.

Former Arsenal man, Campbell believes Asensio is probably not the player they need now.

When asked if they need the Madrid man, he tells Football Insider: “Not really.

“I don’t see much sense in that one if I am honest.

Adding: “I don’t see where he is going to fit in at Arsenal, though. For me, that one will amount to nothing more. I can’t see him coming.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Asensio is one of the finest players in the world and we will benefit from having him on our team.

However, the club already has enough attackers and we just need more strikers now to get us the goals we need.

He might even struggle with the intensity of Premier League football if he moves to the Emirates this summer.

  1. OT: according to some reports,Arsenal have agreed to sign Fabío Viera from Porto!who knows anything about this player?

      1. Arsenal final proposal submitted for Fábio Vieira: €35m guaranteed plus add ons. They will not activate the release clause for €50m but decided to negotiate with Porto.

        1. I don’t know anything about him but according to Portuguese journalists at this price he is a steal!what makes it sweeter is that the spuds and United were looking at him!!

          1. Small technical left footed player from what I’ve read plays as a number 10
            Sounds a carbon copy of Odegaard.
            I’m sure everyone is now going to go on you tube and see for themselves .

            1. 170 cm likes to play in the pocket behind the forwards .

              Weaknesses –

              Heading (seems a strange one )
              Link up play

              That’s what I’ve found with a quick search

    1. Seems he’s the best thing you’ve never heard of in Portugal right now.
      But an attacking midfielder? When we need in other spots more.
      I feel part of our attacking problem is that , they don’t trust whats behind them so much and it takes from the front 3 doing what there , there for.

  2. Interesting that we are signing another number 10, does that mean that Arteta doesn’t see ESR as a CAM and more of a LW/inside forward to compete with Martinelli? Then on the RW a new signing like raphinha or Marquinios to compete with Saka

  3. Looks like a player. Very creative, quick, and an eye for the pass. Doesn’t look like a lite weight either. Could he slot in next to Partey as an attacking option in the MF with Ode in front?

    Martinelli Jesus Saka
    Fabio. Partey

  4. As this report has come from DAVID ORNSTEIN aas well as otheres, I think w ecantake it as read it will come to fruition.

    Like other GOONERS I know nothing about him, so like others, have looked at videos, which however are hard to glean much from.

    But his stats last season look good and he is only 22 and an ATM, which we badly need, IF as seems likely he IS top quality. Excited then!!
    TIL NOW WE HAVE MUCH LACKED REAL CREATIVE QUALITY, despite having Odegaard but we need more than just him in central midfield.

    If he comes though, will we also sign Tielemans? Seems more unlikely now than I thought til just now. Just my take though!

  5. Player of the U21 European championships.
    Great passer scored seven goals for Porto in fifteen starts last season
    Vieira oh oh ohhhh
    Vieira oh oh ohhhh
    He comes from Portugal
    And plays for the Arsenal
    Vieira oh oh ohhhh
