“Maybe that would be a good bit of business.” Campbell reckons Arsenal star should be sold

Despite putting in a fine performance for Arsenal in their game against Chelsea, it seems that Kevin Campbell doesn’t fancy Hector Bellerin.

The Spaniard has come in for some criticisms in recent games, but in the game against the Blues, he was one of Arsenal’s best players.

There have been rumours that he may leave the club with Barcelona being one team that can lure him away from the Emirates.

This is because he grew up in the Spanish side’s youth system before moving to Arsenal nine years ago.

While fans who like him would want him to remain at the club, Campbell is encouraging Arsenal to cash in on him.

He says that the Spaniard loves Barcelona as it is his boyhood team and probably selling him for a few million pounds isn’t such a bad idea.

Asked by Football Insider if Arsenal would sell the right back next summer, Campbell said:

“Bellerin, by his own admission, has not been ripping trees up. He was getting exposed at times.

“Maitland-Niles really sured up the right-hand side when he came in earlier this month. The performances were a lot more solid, especially on that right-hand side.

“There is a question to be asked of Bellerin and a lot of fans are asking it. Will the club sell him?

“There is rumours of Barcelona’s interest. It is his boyhood club, the club he loves and maybe that would be a good bit of business.” 

Bellerin is one of the oldest members of the current Arsenal team but this is probably the best time to cash in on him.

    Aston villa is so good, they have in Watkins a good striker, and a balance midfield, also that guy El ghazi is brilliant and in Martinez a great goalkeeper and Grealish a perfect winger, if they don’t sell any of their players in the summer and add a few quality they will definitely go to the Europa next season.
    OT: I will put my money on Lampard getting the sack before Steve Bruce.

      Don’t forget Mings, Lenohappy 😉

        Ooh yes Sue, and Ming’s didn’t even play today. I don think there’s anyone in that team that cost 40million yet they are playing good football you can see the passion and commitment they put it in every match. Chelsea only had one good chance in the second half through mount shot that Martinez produced a fine save. I’m happy for the fans they really deserve this after all the disappointment of last season, the owner did well to stick with there coach but more importantly they did well not selling Grealish.

        1. Sue says:

          Yes, that was their best piece of business – keeping Grealish..
          They’re doing really well – good on them!

    We did Villa a big favour by losing to them last season. Had they gone down I don’t think they would have kept Grealish. He’s exactly the player we need right now, dynamic, skillful and so versatile – a manager’s dream. And he hasn’t reached his peak yet! Imo we should be looking at home talent, the last British player we bought was Tierney, need I say more?

    Very good point Andrew.If Arteta is not convinced that AMN can replace Bellerin we should go for James Justin of Leicester who is the best RB I have seen in the League this season.
