Arsenal will be going for functional footballers over star names in the summer, according to Kevin Campbell, who feels Unai Emery is about to face a very vital summer.
Arsenal will search for new faces as soon as the 2018-19 campaign comes to a close.
A midfielder to replace Aaron Ramsey must be signed and there are still other key areas of the squad that needs upgrading.
Kevin is of the opinion that the club will already have their targets, and they must ensure they are right ones.
His words, “I think Unai Emery knows what he wants already,”
“He’s very meticulous in his planning and if I’ve gathered anything from listening to him and seeing how he prepares, he will know the targets he wants to attract.
“It may not be these star names, the world class players, but Arsenal could do with some functionality and being tough to beat and having players that will put a shift in.
“It’s not the name on the back of the shirt, it’s more the front of the shirt and the heart to get the team moving forward.
“Unai Emery is going to batten down the hatches and bring in an influx of players that are going to be functional for him.”
“He’s [Emery] going to need funds without a shadow of a doubt, it’s key to how well Arsenal do moving forward.
“We are going to find out if they want to compete not only by how much money is available, but how much backing he gets.
“This is a real crucial summer for Arsenal and if they want to compete in the next five years they have to get this transfer window right.”
