Arsenal are in dire need of sharp shooters in the striking department and seem to be running out of choice since every striker who has a name has been tied down to a new contract or snatched up by the wealthy clubs.
From reports making the rounds, Wenger has sent words to the management of ‘the revelation of the 2014 World Cup’ Joel Campbell to report back to Arsenal for pre-season in preparation for the upcoming season thereby squashing any claims of the youngster going to another club.
In an interview with Ultimecalcionapoli.it the player’s manager when asked of the potential destination of his client after the World Cup said:
“It is so, but the reality is that the player has a two-year contract with Arsenal, the directive we have from London right now is that after the World Cup the player will return to the English club.”
The youngster who would be celebrating his 22nd birthday in 2 days time joined Arsenal on august 2011 but due to problems associated with sorting out his work permit went on to have loan spells with Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiacos, subsequently scoring 10 goals for Olympiacos which includes the famous Champions League goal against Manchester United in the round of 16 clash.
He is currently starring in the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Costa Rica where he helped his country progress to the next round notching up a goal and an assist. The young lad has certainly impressed Arsenal faithfuls thus far in his campaign for his national side in their group stage and following their progression into the knock-out stage of the competition, whether or not Costa Rica advance further a fact still remains that Campbell certainly cut the mark and made an impact which a lot of Gunners’ would look forward to seeing next season when he finally joins the Arsenal army.
