Arsenal idol issues 'huge' Serge Gnabry claim after transfer latest

Kevin Campbell is adamant Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry would make “a huge difference” at Arsenal next season.

However, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Highbury favourite fears Mikel Arteta and Edu will be priced out of a move for the 26-year-old.

Gnabry has just 12 months remaining on his contract at the Allianz Arena and talks over an extension are at an impasse.

According to The Athletic (10 June), a return to the Emirates is highly unlikely in spite of speculation.

It is reported that the financial package required to sign the Germany international would stretch Arsenal’s remodelled wage structure.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the latest, Campbell said: “Impact players and big-game players are going to be key for Arsenal next season.

“When the light was at its brightest last season Arsenal did not respond. A lot of those youngsters did not have the experience needed to handle that situation.

“Therefore, if you could get a Gnabry in it would make a huge difference.

“I just think the numbers are going to work against us here. I think there will be too many teams going for him.

“Unfortunately, we are not shopping at Harrods. We are shopping at Marks and Spencers. It is one of those things.

“Arsenal just aren’t quite there yet. They haven’t got the Champions League money. They have to cut their cloth accordingly.”
