​Campbell urges Nketiah to leave Arsenal on loan to 'get kicked'

Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Eddie Nketiah must get a loan move away from the club.

The 21-year-old is playing a bit part role for the Gunners this season, after a loan spell at Leeds United last term.

He has played only 145 minutes in the Premier League to date, and may consider a loan in the January transfer window.

"Nketiah has a knack for goals but I think he needs to go out on loan for another season, playing back-to-back games to get that confidence in his own body," former Arsenal striker Campbell told Football Insider.

"Coming off the bench and playing sparingly is okay but there is nothing better than getting a run of starts to understand that you can do it at the top level.

"You have got to go through the tough parts. You need to get kicked, feel the pain and the soreness. That is what he needs to do."
