Former Arsenal, Kevin Campbell suggested his former club bring Michail Antonio to the Emirates Stadium. He is believed to be able to make a big impact.
The Jamaican striker has recently managed to steal the limelight through his performances on the front lines of West Ham United. Thanks to his contribution to the Premier League last season, the East London football club this season is playing in the Europa League.
Michail Antonio’s appearance has remained consistent so far with West Ham United. Evidently, he is able to pack 7 goals and contribute 4 assists in 13 appearances in the 2021/22 competition.
Even now he is one of the most feared strikers in the Premier League. It is not impossible that his goalscoring record will continue to grow after the international break in November. Considering that West Ham United is currently also performing well in the domestic league and European stage.
No doubt, Kevin Campbell urged Arsenal to try to persuade West Ham United to want to release Michail Antonio to continue his football career to North London.
Speak at the Highbury Squad YouTube channelKevin Campbell says the 31-year-old forward could make a real difference if Arsenal sign him.
Despite asking Arsenal to try to test West Ham, Kevin Campbell is also still not convinced the team nicknamed The Hammers are willing to sell him to London Red. According to him, if David Moyes dared to sell Michail Antonio it would be very crazy.
As is known, Arsenal’s front line is arguably not very satisfactory appearance. Even two players like Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are likely to be released at the end of the 2021/22 season.
On the other hand, the Premier League’s top teams have also been linked with Raheem Sterling. Opportunities to bring him will not be difficult. The reason is, Mikel Arteta has worked with former Liverpool at Manchester City. Thus, if Michail Antonio is difficult to bring in, he agrees to his former club bringing in the England striker.
While Michail is still under contract until June 2023 with West Ham. Then he has scored 55 goals in 194 appearances in all competitions.
