Young Forward Expects To Be Given A Chance By Arsenal After World Cup Heroics

Campbell thinks he’ll be a Gunners star next term.

Having impressed at the 2014 World Cup with Costa Rica, Joel Campbell expects to be given a chance by his club Arsenal despite having been sent out on-loan for the past three years.

Campbell was bought by the Gunners in 2011, but has since spent time with Lorient, Real Betis and most recently Olmpiakos, where the forward scored a memorable goal against Manchester United in the Champions League last-16.

Arsene Wenger has already hinted that the 22-year-old will be given a chance at the Emirates Stadium next season and after impressing in Brazil the attacker agrees.

“I believe I’ll be returning to Arsenal for next season,” Campbell was quoted by the Mirror.

“It’s been a beautiful World Cup for Costa Rica. It’s gone very well.”

The North London outfit need support in attack, with Wenger admitting his side relied too much upon Olivier Giroud in 2013/14.

Campbell generally operates from the right wing, but can also play centrally and it has been as a No.9 that the Costa Rican has been impressing at the World Cup.

He is yet to play a match for Wenger’s team, but this could well be the time for the striker and clearly both parties are keen for him to succeed in the Premier League.
