Arsenal keeper Manuel Almunia would welcome Gunners old-boy Sol Campbell back into the squad. The defender left the Gunners for Portsmouth in 2006 but has been without a club since cancelling his contract at Notts County after just one appearance last September.

Since then the 35-year-old has been working alongside his former team-mates at the club's London Colney training ground in a bid to maintain his fitness.

The Spaniard told Sky Sports News: "For Arsenal, any help from a player like Sol would be very welcome.

"Having him at Arsenal would mean there are more players fighting for places in the team and in the end that has to be good.

"Sol is desperate to play football again and doing that for Arsenal would be absolutely fantastic."
