Former Gunners striker has encouraged his old club to add Norwich playmaker to their ranks.

Mikel Arteta

’s team has lacked inspiration in their midfield where many believe that they need to sign a creative playmaker to provide for the strikers. Mesut Ozil is on the verge of leaving 

the Gunners

 for the lack of game time as Arteta is interested in including young talents to the first team. 

Emile Smith Rowe

 has delivered solid performances in recent weeks but 

Kevin Campbell

 believes that Norwich playmaker 

Emiliano Buendia

 could be a suitable option for Arsenal. 

“I think he would be a very clever signing,” former Arsenal striker Campbell told Football Insider when quizzed on the Gunners’ links to Buendia. “I like him. He has the qualities that Mikel Arteta is looking for in a player. Not only can he pick a pass, he can score and he works hard.

“He has that energy which has been missing from the team for long periods of this season.

“I think there is some really good players in the Championship and Buendia is one of them. He would fit what Arteta wants to do perfectly.”

Asked about the possibility of such a move, Campbell responded:

“I know Norwich will be desperate to keep him but this is Arsenal and business is business. I am sure Buendia would want to join Arsenal, that is for sure.”
