Mikel Arteta told top-top player will cost £80 million as Arsenal transfer message sent to board

Kevin Campbell has urged Arsenal to spend big on transfers this summer but admitted they would need to splash £80m to sign Jack Grealish

Mikel Arteta is a man that knows he needs to improve many areas of the pitch after a very disappointing season in which the Gunners failed to get back into Europe, while also ending the season with no trophies.

The Gunners will have to splash a large amount of cash to land their main targets in the transfer window and Campbell believes the sum will have to exceed £100 million if they are to become a top side again.

He told Football Insider: “I will be honest, I don’t know if £100 million would be enough.

“It would be nice if they could invest £500 million.

“£100 million does not get you much in the transfer market these days. If you want to sign quality £100 million would only get you two decent players.

“If you want to sign a top, top player like a Grealish you need to be spending £80 million.

“If Stan Kroenke would write a cheque for £200 million now I would take it. I think that’s how much money needs to be invested into this side to make the challengers again.

“It’s a huge summer for Arsenal.”


Arsenal are normally linked with so many big time players that would make immediate impacts at the club, but they never fork out enough money. Their policy of promoting young talent is admirable, but if they want to get back into those top four spots, they need to add a few superstars to the side.
