Arsenal hero Campbell urges Arteta to carry on buying

Arsenal hero Kevin Campbell has urged manager Mikel Arteta to carrying on buying.'

Campbell insists his former club needs to sign another midfielder and striker after sealing deals for Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira and Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus this summer.

Campbell told talkSPORT: "They've got to fix the midfield, it needs more goals, it needs more creativity, hence [Youri] Tielemans.

"I still think Arsenal need an alternative striker, a big striker, someone who, when teams bank up and it's not going so well, someone who you could fire crosses in, and he can get on the end of it.

"I think Arsenal have missed that change of alternative in the set up and the flexibility of Jesus as well means he could start as a nine or he can play wide, he's comfortable anywhere"
