Antonio, 31, has made an impressive start to the season for the Hammers with seven goals and four assists.

The former full-back has evolved into one of the Prem’s most feared strikers and made his international debut for Jamaica in September.

And Campbell, who gained a reputation as handful up front while bagging 46 goals for Arsenal in the early 1990s, says the powerful Hammers star could give their current side a new dimension.

Campbell said: “He could make a real difference but West Ham would never sell him. They would be crazy to sell him.”

Campbell also said it would be best to send 20-year-old Gunners prospect Folarin Balogun out on loan in January so that he can ‘learn his trade’.

And he believes there is ‘mileage’ in rumours linking unsettled Manchester City star Raheem Sterling with a move to the Emirates.

The former Everton forward says Sterling forged a close relationship with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta when he was part of City’s coaching set-up.

He added: “He has been key for Manchester City [in previous seasons] and scored over 20 goals as a wide man. That’s huge.

“And if somebody like him becomes available we have to be involved… we have to.”
