Kevin Campbell thinks Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu is "a bit like" former Gunner, Lauren.
The pundit believes that the Japanese professional has similarities with both Lauren and Lee Dixon due to his toughness and his relentlessness.
Speaking on the Highbury Squad Youtube channel
, Campbell said: “I think his toughness and his relentless nature is how Lee Dixon used to play and he’s a bit like Lauren, Lauren was tough, he could play and he was tough. Tomiyasu has a bit of different spice to him as well, because aerially, he’s dominant.
"We hit him sometimes at goal kicks because he’s aerially dominant. At that back-stick where we’ve had so many problems in the past, we don’t seem to have those problems anymore. I think he’s quite a lot of people’s favourite player.”
