Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has advanced the Gunners to sign both Martin Odegaard and Emiliano Buendia this summer. While Norwich playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates, Odegaard is currently playing at the stadium on a loan from Real Madrid.

Campbell believes Arsenal need to add strength in depth next season, highlighting the quality that both Chelsea and Manchester City have on their bench. Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell claimed that both Odegaard and Buendia would be ideal summer signings.

“They could sign both Odegaard and Buendia,” he said. “You can never have enough quality players. You only need to loot at Manchester City and Chelsea’s squads, there are quality players everywhere.

“There’s quality on the pitch and quality on the bench. You have to fatten your squad up with quality players. Then when you want to rotate, it doesn’t diminish the quality of your team.”

The Gunners were interested in signing Buendia in January but Norwich insisted that the player was not available, with Daniel Farke’s side in the midst of a promotion push.
