Arsenal could complete 'great' Wijnaldum signing after Sky update - Campbell

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum “would be a real asset” for Arsenal, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Gunners and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 31-year-old would “compliment” Thomas Partey at the Emirates.

Wijnaldum has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League after struggling to establish himself in the French capital.

According to Sky Sports‘ Kaveh Solhekol (11 January), the centre-midfielder was “an Arsenal supporter growing up” and the club are still “close to his heart”.

The Netherlands international put pen to paper on a three-year contract with PSG in July after leaving Liverpool.

“They need somebody to come in there who can compliment Partey.

“Losing [Ainsley] Maitland-Niles and not replacing him would wind the Arsenal fanbase up. They should have somebody someone in straight away. It should have been addressed yesterday.

“Wijnaldum knows the Premier League. He has won a title here. He is dependable, he’s fit, strong and he is great on the ball.

“Now there’s a player who would be a real asset for the club. He would be a no brainer for me. Get it done.” 

Wijnaldum has been in and out of Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season.

He has 24 appearances across all competitions and has contributed three goals and one assist.
