Joel Campbell: Costa Rica forward hoping for Arsenal chance

The Costa Rica international joined Arsenal in 2011, but he has yet to make a first-team appearance for Arsene Wenger’s side due to work permit issues.

He has spent time with Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiakos, and has been linked with another loan move away from the Emirates Stadium.

AC Milan have already acknowledged an interest in the 22-year-old, while Galatasaray have also been linked with an approach for Campbell.

However, after impressing for Costa Rica at the World Cup in Brazil, Campbell is keen to be given an opportunity at Arsenal.

“The Premier League’s the most interesting in the world and I’ve always wanted to play here. It’s my dream. And I believe I’m good enough,” Campbell told The Sun.

“I’ve played around 100 games in three different divisions in Europe. Lorient in France, Real Betis in Spain and Olympiakos in Greece, where I played Champions League too.

“I’m confident of being successful in any division in the world.”

Give him a chance Wenger, we dont need more strikers, Giroud, Campbell,Podolski,Sanchez,Walcott(when hes fit) we need Khedira or Bender(Lars or Sven)

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

The Bitter Taste Of Arsenal Déjà Vu

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
