Former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell believes that the club need to sell as many as 10 players in a huge squad overhaul this summer.
Former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell has called on the club to sell up to 10 players in a huge squad overhaul this summer.
The Gunners have seen their top-four hopes taken out of their own hands courtesy of back-to-back defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers, leaving them needing a slip-up from those above them in the final three games of the season.
Arsenal do still have an alternative route into next season’s Champions League via the Europa League, but Campbell still believes that a large section of the squad is not up to the required standard.
“I think there’s probably 10 players who aren’t good enough,” Campbell told talkSPORT.
“I’m not just blaming [Shkodran] Mustafi for what happened at Crystal Palace because I think it was a team thing, although he made a mistake. There are 10 players who Arsenal really need to look at getting out of the club.
“I think the fans need to not fall for the name on the back of the shirt. What the fans have to do is see what the players do on the pitch and can they fight and have the desire for the club. It may not be a world-class name but we got showed up by Wolves and not many people knew who these Wolves players were at the start of the season.”
Arsenal take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this afternoon looking to improve an away record which has seen them win just two of their last 11 league outings on the road.
