According to BBC journalist David Ornstein, Joel Campbell will finally be given an opportunity to shine at Arsenal this season and compete for a first team place.
Campbell signed for Arsenal back in 2011 and has been out on loan since, initially being denied a work permit.
But the striker has impressed in the last year; producing the goods for Olympiakos and impressing in Costa Rica’s surprise World Cup run, scoring a goal in the win over Uruguay and tucking away a penalty in the shoot-out with Greece.
Now Campbell will be added to a Gunners strikeforce which many fans have cried out needs reinforcement. His presence in the squad would certainly improve the strength of the team.
