Kevin Campbell says Saka could change position if Arsenal signs 25-year-old

Bukayo Saka has occupied Arsenal’s attacking right-wing in the last campaign and he will likely keep that spot on the team.

However, the Gunners could add Leeds winger Raphinha to their squad in this transfer window.

They have made an offer for his signature and will keep pushing until they sign the Brazilian.

He also plays from the right-wing of an attack and this means he will have to battle Saka for a place on the team if he joins.

But that will not be the case, according to Kevin Campbell, who insists both attackers are adept at playing on the left or right, so it would be easy to have them to be on the same team.

He tells Football Insider: “Saka could play on the left.

“They both could, to be honest. That is the beautiful thing. They can both play on either flank.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal must have studied Raphinha’s suitability to their team before considering a move for him.

Mikel Arteta already knows most of the Brazilian’s qualities and he will deploy the attacker in a position he believes he will deliver his best performance for the team.

  1. Raphina, is undoubtedly a talented winger, but in terms of a priority signing who will substantially strengthen our side, he is not a solution.A central striker and a physically imposing DM with pace and energy, top my personal list of essential needs.

    1. Of course we are going to sign players for other positions,the fact that we want to sign him does’nt make him our top priority.

  2. RAPHINHA is of course a talented player, but IMO he will not come to us. The fee will be too much and we need a top quality central and a physically effective central stiker.

    Plus, after all the dismal years of Xhaka, a PROPER DM.

    Both are priority needs and will cos tserious funds , which will not be unlimited , hence my firm opinion that we will NOT be buying the nevertheless talented Raphinha!

  3. @jon fox,Do you know that leeds are already planning for life after raphinha and they have a replacement lined up-CODY GAKPO.

  4. Raphinha maynot be a priority signing, but I certainly think he will be a very interesting player to add to our team.

    The gaffer must have studied the impact this Brazilian could make to the team, Ramsdale was way below Raphinha in terms of importance coming to Arsenal, the rest is now history.

    1. Yeah gunsmoke,i knew this when i observed the moment btw arteta and raphinha in an encounter against leeds at the emirates last season when he was subbed off.

  5. We still need him since Pepe is not doing enough and is planning to go out. Rafinha will be a good addition.. but our priority now is DM.

  6. I don’t know what Arsenal fans are complaining about. We really need this guy because Arsenal need attacking force that can be reckon in premier league. The reason we didn’t make it to champion league is because we didn’t score more last season. The best way to defend in modern football is to attack. This guy is a strong and discipline player that Arsenal need
