Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has suggested that the Gunners need to strengthen their attacking options, particularly in the striker position, to compete for the Premier League title. Campbell believes that the current goal-scoring contributions from players like Leandro Trossard, Eddie Nketiah, and Gabriel Jesus are insufficient.
With Arsenal currently sitting in 3rd place in the league table, just a point below leaders Manchester City, Campbell thinks the team has a genuine chance to vie for the title. However, he emphasizes the need for a striker capable of netting 20 to 25 Premier League goals per season.
Campbell’s preferred choice for Arsenal is Victor Osimhen, who played a pivotal role in Napoli’s Scudetto triumph, scoring 26 goals and providing five assists. While acknowledging Osimhen’s potential cost, Campbell also mentions Ivan Toney of Brentford as another option.
In assessing Arsenal’s current standing with 26 Premier League goals and 10 conceded, Campbell believes a top-class striker could alleviate pressure on the team, unlock tight games, and create opportunities for other players. He suggests that the Gunners should explore potential signings in the upcoming transfer window, considering the impact a quality striker could have on the team’s title ambitions.
