    Bendtner's gone and wasn't good enough. If we buy one striker we'll have him and Giroud only. So Campbell has to stay as does Sanogo. I don't see us buying two strikers.

    3 strikers is sufficient for a challenge. You have a top striker, then Giroud for backup and then Sanogo as third choice. It's no worse than what Chelsea had last season anyway or what Juve had before they got Tevez and Llorente.

    Why can't you afford to loan him out, is he even 20 yet?

    He doesn't suit your style of play, he's still quite raw but talented. Personally he's best suited at another team than at Arsenal, but if you can get him performing at a good level in the prem on loan then he could have a future here. You have enough wingers as it is and you have plenty of strikers/wingers who are in the Joel Campbell category. Sanogo and Bendtner e.g.
    If he doesn't suit 'Arsenal system' atm, then why loan him to play in another system rather than train him to and adapt to the 'Arsenal system'?

    Keep Campbell and send Sanogoals far, far away! We really shouldn't be loaning Joel, he's done his time, it's Yaya time to do his.

    Say he were to go to Everton, who play attacking football, not exactly the same as Arsenal but a step in the right direction, he can develop as a player, then as he matures as a player at Everton he can then go to Arsenal with confidence and showing that he has the ability as a player in the top flight

    Essentially Lukaku mkII but actually having the intention of playing him. Just using Everton as an example. He develops as a top player and then you just have to get him to adapt to a system. That's easier than attempting to integrate him and not giving him enough games.

    Were in a better position to keep Giroud and Sanogo along with a new striker then keep Campbell

    He didn't impress me today tbh and I don't think he'll work in our team. Sanogo is tied down to us and already offers presence and threat at this stage so we can allow him to develop where as Joel still needs to prove his worth to the team.

    Well, like I said earlier, he's already done than for 3 season already- he's already played games in top leagues and showed that he can do it in CL (before you say laugh at Greek league and dismiss it, look at Mirallas and how he took the the PL relatively easily). His performance so far from the 5ish games that I've seen him doesn't seem to suggest that he requires another season of confidence building. Another season away is delaying the inevitable as i mentioned earlier.

    And, I don't buy the argument that you can't develop to a top player on the training pitch.

    Loaning him shouldn't be considered this summer. If come January and he's non existence, then consider it then. It's about time he starts to be integrated into the Arsenalisation of life and all that nonsense.

    So Campbell just needs to just put in a few decent performances and he's proven his worth? Because that's all Sanogo has done. Campbell needs to stay this season. It shouldn't even be a question. And how can he prove his worth to us if he's never here?!?! Give him a chance before killing him.

    This isn't a comparison of the ability between the two players but one has already played with us and done half decent at times during the cup run where as the other has never played a game for us. Both are 21 where one has one year left in his contract and the other has 3.

    I guess so. There are arguments for both anyway. He's 21 so it may not be too wise to have a loan now, but then I guess Costa was loaned out at age 22 to Rayo and look how that went, although was in jan.

    He should at least get pre-season with you guys so would be possible for Wenger to tell how good he is from that anyway.

    It certainly isn't. But Campbell did well for Olympiakos (including in the CL) and proven he's a half decent player. It's time he's given a chance here. And let's not forget he can play out wide if we need him.

    Campbell has 2 years left. If anything, the contract situation is an argument for loaning out Sanogo and keeping Campbell as either way, a decision about him needs to be made about him in the next 6 months.

    Sanogo is also the one that's more in need of game time so he develops a 6th sense of where the goal is.

    Perhaps. But, reports are emerging that you guys will need to buy a striker.

    Not gonna lie, all these reports are making me a little nervous.

    If he goes, he goes, nothing we can do.

    However if it's to Madrid, I expect a benzema swap deal.
    If to barca, I expect a pedro/Sanchez swap deal.

    Haha touché

    Except you forgot one thing.

    Lambert is our 3rd/4th striker, who has shown quality at the top level of both club and international levels.

    Campbell played one good match against Uruguay and now arsenal fans are orgasming over the notion of him as your first striker...

    Ofcourse, Benzema or Sanchez from real or barca respectively should almost definately be expected. But Benzema or Sanchez ain't no Suarez

    Suarez is easily the best striker in the world at the moment & loosing him would be a huge blow, regardless of whoever replaces him.

    Who's going to want to play for Liverpool when their best player is going the other way lol. If Suarez leaves Liverpool you won't make champion league although Liverpool are the type of team who could easily win it during the same season
