EPL: Arsenal star needs regular playing time – Campbell tells Arteta

Arsenal legend, Kevin Campbell believes midfielder, Albert Sambi Lokonga needs regular playing time under manager Mikel Arteta to help his development.

Lokonga joined Arsenal last summer for a £17million fee from Anderlecht.

He has been serving as an understudy to experienced midfield duo Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka in Arteta’s squad.

With Partey injured, Lokonga has started the last three matches for Arsenal, producing decent performances.

However, when asked about Lokonga’s development so far, Campbell told the Highbury Squad (via HITC): “He’s probably not where he needs to be in his development because he probably needs more game time.

“He has only played three games this season. If Partey’s fit, then he’s out of the team and he is probably only going to get started in the Europa League. So, Sambi isn’t probably where he (should be).”

He added: “I think he has done pretty well in that midfield area, considering he doesn’t play. He’s more progressive than Elneny.”
