I can’t believe that there are more Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsenal are ready to send our young Costa Rica international Joel Campbell back out on loan again. The poor lad has only just joined up with his Arsenal team mates and headed out to the pre-season training camp in Austria.
Surely Arsene Wenger cannot make such a big decision on the 22-year old’s future after just a few days in training, especially when you see the footage of his fancy footwork turning Arsenal’s Spanish left back Nacho Monreal up in knots in a Metro report.
But, according to various media sources including the reliable Independent, claim that Campbell will not be included in the Arsenal squad for the coming season. There are various clubs proposed for the Costa Rican to move to, including Turkish champions Galatasaray and Premier League outfits Everton, Southampton and Newcastle.
I think this would be a bad mistake, because Campbell is clearly willing to fight for his place and does not expect to be an automatic starter. That is a great attitude for a young player to have, but if we send him on loan, while the likes of Yaya Sanogo are left in the squad, he could well decide he has had enough.
Come on Wenger, give the kid a chance!
