Pundit reckons signing Bundesliga man for £34m would be a good deal for Arsenal

Kevin Campbell has urged Arsenal to open the cheque book and sign Andre Silva from Eintracht Frankfurt for £34million.

Transfer Window Podcast reported earlier that Arsenal is in the running for his signature after his stunning Bundesliga campaign.

The Gunners face uncertainty over the future of Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette and both strikers could be allowed to leave.

Silva scored 28 goals in 32 Bundesliga games last season to emerge as one of Europe’s top goalscorers.

The striker has the goals to help Arsenal next season and he could form a deadly strike partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Emirates.

Arsenal’s summer transfer budget remains unclear, but former Gunners’ star, Campbell believes the above fee is a bargain for the striker.

He expressed shock at the fee and suggested that it was probably a release clause because he is worth more than that considering his current form.

“That’s a very good price so maybe it is a clause in his contract,” he told Football Insider.

“That could be why it is so low.

“Listen, £34million is a bargain for a lad like that, that can score goals like he can. He would be an amazing signing for Arsenal.

“He knows where the net is so he could help Aubameyang. When Aubameyang struggled last season so did the team.

“Lacazette finished top goalscorer and he wasn’t convincing at times. We need some help in that department.”

  1. Sign him. he was very dangerous and convincing this evening for the few minutes he played against Belgium. he’s good.

    1. Sign Andre Silva Pls!!🙏🙏😊
      If Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspurs (Timo Werner is convincing enough and Harry Kane will likely leave) Hijack dis Deal, I will never Forgive Arsenal!!🤨

  2. The problem you only want and want but waste time negotiating act fast before other teams pay what the team wants and get the players

  3. Hope hes better than what little i have seen of him! He definitely isn’t top class, we have better already.

  4. Seems to be a good player, overshadowed by other stars in the Portugal team. But he has performed very well in the German league. Arsenal must go in for him.

    1. As far as I am aware Arsenal are not under any obligation to buy any player on the Planet.Silva is effectively fourth choice striker for Portugal, and on the few occasions I have seen him, he does not appear to be an upgrade on what we have.

      1. GFL, I agree with Grandad. The quality of Arsenal strikers is not the problem. What Arsenal needs to strengthen is the midfield to address the real problem of transition from defense to attack and service (both quality and speed) to Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pepe, Saka, Martinelli and Balogun. ESR is young, still developing physically and prone to injury; thus the pressure needs to be relieved by buying an ACM to avoid running ESR into the ground. Similarly a quality DM is required to allow Thomas Party the freedom to be a true box to box midfielder. Joe Willock will be a good deputy for Partey or could play along side him (with Partey playing the holding role) in a more attacking midfield.

  5. Mr. Arteta and Edu think about getting Levis Campbell and Lewis of Everton to reinforce the Arsenal attack for 21/22 PL Campaign.
    Procrastination/Inertia is going to kill our transfer efforts ; Please, Arteta and Edu do not steal too much of our transfer time.
    The talking is more than the doing, and I am afraid that key targets may slip through our fingers to rival clubs.
    Aston Villa should leave Arsenal players alone. Why don’t they look somewhere else for players?

  6. Andre Silva is exactly the kind of Striker Arsenal needs now!!
    Young, Bit Aggressive and Goal-Hungry!!
    We should not judge him based on his Few minutes@the Euros!!
    I wonder how most here wants us to continue with Lacazette n Auba..
    Both re Slow, sluggish and will not Take us Anywhere!!
    We need sth Different!!
    Andre Silva is da Man!!

  7. I think we should invest in andre Silva ,for 34 mil it’s a deal ,he is more consistent than lacazette and abauyang last season
