‘His time is up’: Highbury legend brutally calls for Arsenal 27-year-old to be sold

Kevin Campbell, a renowned figure at Highbury, believes that Rob Holding should depart from Arsenal under Mikel Arteta’s management in the upcoming summer transfer window of 2023.

As the primary central defenders for Arsenal, William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes have taken the lead, leaving Holding, who became part of the club in 2016, as a backup choice alongside the January signing Jakub Kiwior.

Campbell holds the opinion that Holding’s tenure at Arsenal has come to an end, and he would not be surprised if Holding decides to leave the club in the following months, as expressed during his conversation with the Highbury Squad.


Since his arrival at the Emirates, Rob Holding has faced a persistent challenge of securing a permanent position in the starting lineup. Regardless of the managers he has played under, be it Arsene Wenger, Unai Emery, or Mikel Arteta, Holding has been unable to establish himself as a regular starter.

This consistent struggle to secure a spot in the team suggests that it may be a clear indication for him to consider leaving the club and exploring other opportunities elsewhere.

According to Campbell, who shares the viewpoint that Arsenal is actively seeking to strengthen their squad in the upcoming summer transfer window, he believes that Holding’s position should be upgraded.

In other words, Campbell suggests that Arsenal should aim to acquire a higher-caliber player to replace Holding in the team, indicating that Holding’s role may not meet the desired standards or ambitions of the club.

“I think Rob Holding, his time is up,” said Campbell. “It’s going to be no surprise to us (if Holding leaves). But that’s a spot that has to be upgraded anyway.”

With Arsenal now competing in the Champions League, and even prior to their qualification, it is evident that Holding may not have been up to the required standard to feature regularly for the club.

It is apparent that Holding needs to move to a lower-tier team where he can accumulate playing time and demonstrate his abilities.

Joining a team outside of Europe might be the most suitable option for Holding since breaking into European teams, ranging from Brighton to Newcastle, would likely pose a significant challenge.
