Mikel Arteta urged to bring £35 million England International to Arsenal this summer
Sol Campbell has urged Arsenal to sign Wolves defender Conor Coady in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal finished eighth in the Premier League for the second successive season in 2020-21, with Arteta ultimately unable to build on their FA Cup triumph last term.
That means that Mikel Arteta will need to spend some serious money in the coming transfer window to add players that will improve the weakest areas of the pitch that will allow the club to get back into that top four spot next season.
And amid speculation that Arteta is looking to add a new defender to the squad, The former Gunners star says that the Wolves centre-back has the mental strength and defensive nous to add a new dimension to Arteta’s line-up.
Campbell told Ladbrokes: “There’s a lot of players out there who can fit the Arsenal mould. Conor Coady is a good player; he’s comfortable on the ball, he’s a winner.
“He’s definitely got the kind of mentality Arsenal should be looking at in new players. He’s definitely someone they should look at because he’s so solid, he wants to defend.
“He can pass as well, he’s quick, he’s strong, he’s good in the air. He’s a good all-rounder and he’s got a bit about him.
“He’s at a good club now in Wolves, but he’s actually someone I’d be looking at for Arsenal this summer. He’s got a great attitude as well, and I like that.”
There is no doubt that Arsenal need to improve that midfield in the transfer window, so if they managed to secure a transfer deal for Coady, he would be a very good signing for the club
