Redknapp believes the defender would be ideal for Arsenal.
He said: "When he was sold (from Blackburn to Anzhi) I could never understand why Arsenal did not sign him that time.
"He is everything you need. He can head it, he is quick. He can play round his feet. He is a proper centre half. He could play anywhere in this country and for all the top teams."
Is Redknapp right about Samba? Should he be playing for the Gunners? Give us your shout below...
