Campbell: Taylor-Hart has 'people in his ear' telling him to quit Arsenal after Athletic reveal
Kevin Campbell has urged Arsenal teenager Kido Taylor-Hart to “listen to the right people” before making a decision on his future.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker fears voices will be trying to lure the 18-year-old away from the Emirates this summer which may not be the best move for his career.
Taylor-Hart‘s contract at the Emirates is set to expire at the end of this month.
According to The Athletic (3 June), there is an offer on the table from the Gunners, but interest from clubs in England and across Europe is said to be complicating matters.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his thoughts on Taylor-Hart’s future, the well-connected Campbell, whose son Tyrese stars for Stoke City, said:
“The club will be desperate for him to stay because he is a young player who has done really well at the lower age groups.

“The issue is, when your contract is set to run out, you have got people in your ear telling you contrasting things. Teams will be coveting him and trying to lure him away from Arsenal.
“He needs to listen to the right people and make the best decision for his career.
“If Arsenal is the club for him, great but if not we all move on.”
That first touch… 🤤
