The Arsenal transfer news that the Gunners’ fans want to be reading about is which players the manager is bringing in to strengthen his squad. We have already had to see our long serving FRance international Bacary Sagna join Man City, our former captain Cesc Fabregas sign for Chelsea and it looks like our current captain Thomas Vermaelen will be on his way out of the Emirates as well.
So why on earth are we also reading about which clubs are lining up to take the talented Costa Rican Joel Campbell on loan this season? Earlier this week it was being proposed that AC Milan were keen to involve the young striker in any potential transfer of Mario Balotelli, whether a loan deal or a permanent switch, and now The Mirror is reporting that Tony Pulis is looking to take him to Crystal Palace.
To be fair, if Arsene Wenger did decide to send 21-year old Campbell out on loan again this coming season, it would probably be better for him to go to another Premier League outfit, but have we learned nothing from the Romelu Lulaku saga? Arsenal have struggled for goals. Campbell scores goals and is having a great summer at the World Cup. Surely he must be in the Arsenal squad when the season starts, or am I missing something?
