Arsenal icon Kevin Campbell supports the idea of his old club selling attacker Reiss Nelson, but he thinks the north Londoners need to add a buy-back clause in any transfer taking the attacker away from the club.
He has been one casualty of the Spanish tactician Mikel Arteta looking for success at the Emirates this campaign.
The forward looked to have broken into the senior team after spending the previous season on loan at Hoffenheim.
However, Reiss has struggled for a playing time in this term and that has affected his development.
There have been talks of the Gunners cashing in on him when the transfer market reopens and Campbell does not think it is a bad idea.
However, Kevin believes the English ace might leave unfinished business behind at the club and Campbell has urged them to add a buy-back clause in any agreement.
He says Reiss should be considering leaving to prove why he is good enough to start for Arsenal so that they can buy him back.
Kevin told Football Insider: “Reiss Nelson is 21 now. Going out on loan is difficult because there are so many players ahead of him right now.
“For me, he has got to play football and realistically he is not going to get that regularly at Arsenal.
“I would love the club to do a deal where we sell him but we have first refusal on him after, because he knows the Arsenal way.
“Getting game time is very difficult right now during this rebuild. Go away, get minutes, prove yourself and if we like what we see we will bring you back.”
