Joel Campbell has made it clear that he has no intention of extending his Arsenal stay beyond the summer of 2018 when his current contract with the north London club expires.
The Costa Rica international is hoping to join current club Real Betis on a permanent basis next summer once his loan from the Gunners comes to an end.
Campbell joined Arsenal from Deportivo Saprissa in summer of 2011 but has spent the majority of his time out on loan. He spent just one full season – 2015/16 – with the north London club since arriving and failed to break into the first-team under Arsene Wenger.
The 25-year-old’s inability to impress the Arsenal boss enough during his stay at the Emirates saw him loaned out to Sporting Lisbon in the 2016/17 campaign. He failed to impress during his time with the Portuguese giants, which has seen him shipped out to Real Betis for this campaign.
“I will try to do my best this season, (hopefully) in the end the club is happy with what I do and they want to bet on me,” Campbell said about his desire to join the La Liga club on a permanent basis, as quoted by the Sun.
Joel Campbel has played in 40 games for north London club and scored four goals for Arsenal.
