Ex-Arsenal star ​Campbell insists Arteta must sign three players to alleviate 'strain'

Arsenal have been told they should make up to three signings this winter.

That is according to former Gunners striker Kevin Campbell.

Manager Mikel Arteta was unable to get his desired choice of another midfielder and winger before the end of the transfer window, and Campbell thinks he should sign three players in January.

“With the injuries, there is already a strain on Arsenal’s squad,” Campbell told Football Insider.

“The midfield is an area that is a bit light. Mikel Arteta and Edu know that. They were trying to get a couple of players in before the window closed. The move for Douglas Luiz [from Aston Villa] did not quite happen.

“The squad is not fully done yet, that is for sure. They need to make some moves and get two or three more players in January. It is going to be a long arduous season, especially after the World Cup. Arsenal really have some work to do when the window re-opens.”
