Arsenal transfers: ‘Gunners need marquee signings in January’
Kevin Campbell says Arsenal need to splash the cash in the January transfer window
Kevin Campbell has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash on some marquee signings for Arsenal during the January transfer window.
The Gunners have made a stuttering start to the season and find themselves sixth in the Premier League table after 11 games and 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.
And former Arsenal striker Campbell would like to see the north Londoners bring in some top talent during the mid-season window.
“Arsenal have not underachieved,” Campbell told talkSPORT.
“They’ve done pretty well with what they’ve got. OK, they’ve only won one trophy over the last few years, but you have to have a look at the strength of the other teams.
“Arsenal have been lacking midfield players for a long time, but they’ve had to balance the books and work within a budget. To go and get the best players, you have to pay the best wages.
“Arsenal haven’t been in the position, until now, to do that. I would like to see Arsene Wenger go out in January and make a couple of marquee signings.”
