Exciting news as fans told Arsenal could seal summer signing of £50M man
Kevin Campbell has claimed Arsenal could sign Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby this summer transfer window
Mikel Arteta has some pretty good transfer business this summer and he should be proud of the players that he has managed to bring to the club over the last few weeks
But there are a few more areas of the pitch that he needs to work on and adding another central midfielder will not be on the agenda of the Spanish boss – who has some money left to spend
There has been so many players linked with a move to the club – defenders – midfielders – forwards – and now it seems that Arsenal have been given the green light to try and sign Diaby
Diaby was outstanding for the German club last season, with his 42 matches in all competitions yielding 17 goals and 14 assists.
Recent reports in the media have claimed that owner Stan Kroenke has given the club the green light to make a move and try to sign the man – and now Campbell has claimed that he could be heading to the Emirates
He told Football Insider: “You never really know until they come in through.
“One thing we have do know is that Moussa Diaby is very direct and very skilful. He is a real creator. He can go both way, inside and outside.
“It looks like he tracks back and does the dirty work as well. That is what can be levelled at Pepe. He is good going forward but the other side of his game is lacking intensity.
“Diaby is a good player, but you never really know until they come in. He has been coveted by a few clubs. [Mikel] Arteta and Edu do their homework.”
Many believe that Arsenal needs to sign a big striker – a powerful striker – a man that will give Arteta something different up top – a man that has the ability to hold the ball up and win things in the air – they do not have that
They have a number of players that can play out on the wings – a striker should be next – now a winger
So, even though Diaby is a very good player – he is not the type of star that Arsenal needs to sign right now – but he is obviously a player the club want
