Benfica ready to pay €10m for Arsenal’s Joel Campbell, player’s agent meets Eagles [O Jogo & Record]
- August 30, 2014
Benfica all are guns blazing to sign Arsenal’s Joel Campbell this Saturday.
After a few days are rumblings in the Portuguese press that the Gunners’ Costa Rican forward was on the viewfinder at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon, Benfica appear to have stepped up their pursuit of Campbell dramatically in the past 24 hours.
Both O Jogo and Record run with Joel Campbell as their lead story on Saturday, with O Jogo peddling the line that Benfica are ready to pay €10 million for the World Cup star, while Record are slightly more modest focusing on a loan deal.

Of course, in the background of all of Benfica’s advances is the situation at the Emirates. Having lost Olivier Giroud to a broken foot Arsenal’s forward options have depleted, and the Portuguese press recognise that Campbell may only become available if Arsenal bring in a new attacker first.
With that said, Record detail that Campbell’s agent was in Lisbon on Friday to speak face-to-face with the Eagles, however no deal has currently been done.
