Sol Campbell Says Hull Defender Harry Maguire Should Be on Arsenal’s Shopping List

Sol Campbell Says Hull Defender Harry Maguire Should Be on Arsenal’s Shopping List

When Sol Campbell was asked what five players he would like Arsenal to sign this summer, nobody would have expected him to name a player who was relegated from the Premier League this season.

But that’s exactly what the ex-Gunners defender did today, as he admitted he’d love his former side to make a move for Hull City centre-back Harry Maguire this summer.

Yes, despite the fact both John Terry and Michael Keane are reportedly available this summer, Campbell would like Arsene Wenger to take a punt on Maguire.

The 24-year-old was tipped for greatness by manager Marco Silva earlier this season after a string of impressive performances.

Granted, Campbell also named Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Virgil van Dijk among his transfer targets, but the inclusion of Maguire will surely raise a few eyebrows.

He told BetStars, “At the back, I’m going for an English guy Harry Maguire.

“I think he’s definitely one of the players who could make a difference. I think a better team could definitely raise his game.”

Campbell added, “He’s got two good feet, he’s very mobile for a big guy. That’s definitely a plus for me because sometimes the big guys can’t move around.

“With better training and the better players against him week in week out training-wise, I think definitely he can step it up.”

What do you reckon Arsenal fans, would Maguire improve a defence that already features Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding?
