Eddie Nketiah has been urged to push for a loan move away from Arsenal that will allow him to “get kicked”, says Kevin Campbell
Nketiah is regarded as one of the finest talents in the Premier League and has become a big part of the plans that Mikel Arteta has to take the club forward in the coming seasons.
However, with the experienced Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club, he ha snot been getting the game time that he would have liked under Mikel Arteta, and that means his development is not progressing like it should be.
Now Campbell has opened up and urged the talented star to pack his bags in the January window and seek a loan move away from the Emirates to get more minutes: “Nketiah has a knack for goals but I think he needs to go out on loan for another season, playing back-to-back games to get that confidence in his own body,” former Arsenal striker Campbell told Football Insider.
“Coming off the bench and playing sparingly is okay but there is nothing better than getting a run of starts to understand that you can do it at the top level.
“You have got to go through the tough parts. You need to get kicked, feel the pain and the soreness. That is what he needs to do.”
Pundit Darren Bent has urged Mikel Arteta to re-sign free agent Jack Wilshere for Arsenal.
The England international midfielder, who is a product of the Gunners’ academy system, is a free agent at present after seeing his contract terminated by West Ham and could have got a move back to the Emirates as Mikel Arteta seeks to add a bit of depth to the squad.
There has been may reports in the media which have suggested that Wilshere is open to the idea of making a transfer move to join Rangers, where he could reinvent himself in the game playing under Steven Gerrard.
However, with no decision yet made, Bent has opened up and urged Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to make a move and offer the former England International a move back to the Emirates,
the Ex-Spurs striker told talkSPORT: “I hope he does return. Pay-as-you-play, Jack Wilshere, why not?
“He’s got that creativity and I know he’d be hungry to go back to Arsenal, I know how much he loves the club.
“I’m not saying give him a normal contract, but on a pay-as-you-play, I’d take him back tomorrow.”
Arsenal will reject the chance to sign Christian Eriksen, reports have emerged and claimed.
It is no secret that this Arsenal side is lacking a bit of creativity in the side, that Mikel Arteta is struggling to see the goals that he would like, and that would help this Gunners side pick up the results he needs.
That has led to reports in the media suggesting that money will be spent in the coming transfer window on adding a new midfielder to the squad, with the likes of Houssem Aouar and Isco high up on the shopping list.
However, there has also been reports claiming that Arsenal have expressed an interest in signing former Tottenham star Eriksen from Milan, especially after it was revealed by the Italian giants that the midfielder is free to leave in the winter window.
Eriksen believed he was ready for a fresh challenge and moved to Inter just last season, but despite all the hype that surrounded his move, he has struggled to make any sort of impact and has only played 301 minutes of game time this season.
But despite the reports which suggested that Arsenal were keen on a move, the Daily Star has reported that the Gunners have no intention of signing the ex-Spurs star in the coming transfer window.
We were massive fans of Eriksen in the Premier League and it has been a shock to see that he is not capable of competing in the Italian League, but at the end of the day, a move from Arsenal would not have been the right one.
Arsenal are considering a shock transfer move for Sheffield United midfield star Sander Berge.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta managed to secure a number of transfer deals over the past few windows that impressed the Gunners fans and improved this squad, but there have also been a number of players that they missed out on.
The Gunners were beaten to his signature in January when the Blades spent a club-record £22million on him, but they have been keeping a very close eye on the performances of the midfielder since his move to the Premier League, and have been impressed.
Now Norwegian newspaper VG reckons Arsenal are considering another attempt to bring Berge to the Emirates with the 6ft 5ins man adding some extra physicality into the midfield, although they would have to pay more than that £22 million United paid to wrap up a transfer deal.
Chris Wilder labelled Berge as his side’s standout player this season despite the club slumped to the bottom of the table, The United boss said on the club website: “Sander was a fantastic signing for us.
“We want him to grow with us, but we understand that the big clubs are interested when he performs so well.
“People thought he would not be a success in the Premier League, but he has turned it upside down. Sander has been our best player this season.
“I just have to say it: Sander has been unique. He is the one who has stood out for us.
“He is a complete midfielder. He can play as an 8 and as 6. He can play in different formations.”
