Kevin Campbell wants Arsenal to battle Spurs for La Liga star

Kevin Campbell believes Villarreal’s Pau Torres is a very good defender as Tottenham continues to pursue the Spaniard, and the former Arsenal man wants the Gunners to hijack the transfer.

Torres helped Villarreal to win the Europa League last season and rejected offers to leave the club in the summer so that he can play for them in the Champions League.

They have just eliminated Juventus from the competition and are in the quarterfinals. If they leave the UCL at that stage, they will still leave with their heads held high.

This could also be his last season at the club and the Premier League might be his next destination. If that becomes the case, Campbell would love to see him in the colours of Arsenal.

He tells Football Insider: “He’s a very good player.

Adding: “I’d like to see Arsenal interested in him as well as Spurs. Mikel Arteta probably knows of him, but all you can say is watch this space.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Torres has been in fine form for the Yellow Submarines so far and he looks so much like a player that will thrive under the leadership of Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

We will keep strengthening our squad in the summer and he might be the right defender to add to it after the departure of Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac.

  1. We already have a highly talented young 21 year old CB that won’t cost Arsenal a penny in transfer fees; Saliba. Love the faith Campbell shows in Saliba by the way.

    1st and 2nd transfers should be strikers in the Summer. We will have nobody filling that spot in the first team, while we have 5 CB’s already on the books for Arsenal; White, Gabriel, Holding, Saliba, and Mari.

  2. Quality player but wouldn’t displace either BW or
    Gab as first choice regardless if W Saliba returns
    or is moved on. And even if WS decides his future
    lies elsewhere Arsenal could find an experienced,
    quality 3rd or 4th CB for a fraction of what PT
    would cost.

    As Durand correctly pointed out whatever resources
    Edu and MA are given this summer should be
    earmarked for 2 new strikers and a midfiled
    partner for Thomas Partey.

    VO from Napoli would be my first choice striker
    but his price tag will reach north of £100M if he
    maintains his current form throughout the
    remainder of Sierra A. Arsenal aren’t going to pay
    that and I honestly don’t blame them.

    2 of Darwin Nunez, Luka Jovic and D Origi would
    be a more realistic striker haul and a substantial
    upgrade of quality @ the position.

    Add 2 of the following midfielders and AFC will be
    a series threat for the EPL title next year IMWO,

    A Tchouameni
    R. Neves
    H Aouar
    B Kamara
    Y Fofana
    R Sanchez

  3. Nah, defender is not a priority, we have Saliba coming back,

    Depending on out going two strikers and two Midfielders are a necessity

    My choice is clear

  4. Could be considered only if Saliba is surely not returning. He is no doubt a quality player but if Saliba is returning he might not be required. I would still keep Tammy Abraham as one of the options whilst considering a striker. He has got PL experience, is a young clinical finisher and would love to come back to England.

  5. I was so sure that Campbell would come up with something genuinely idiotic.
    And I was right again.
