Campbell confirms he will be playing at the Emirates in 2014/15.
Costa Rica forward Joel Campbell has revealed that he will be playing at Arsenal next season and not out on-loan once again.
The 21-year-old spent the 2013/14 campaign with Greek champions Olympiakos, scoring 11 goals in all competitions including a strike against Manchester United in the Champions League last-16.
Campbell is currently away with his country at the 2014 World Cup and was on the score-sheet as the Costa Ricans ran out surprise 3-1 winners over Uruguay on Saturday.
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has spoken about the attacker and his future at the Emirates Stadium and now the player himself has revealed what the plan is.
“Of course I have to go back, because I have a contract with Arsenal,” Campbell was quoted by Sky Sports.
The youngster was signed by the North Londoners from the biggest club in his home nation, Deportivo Saprissa, back in 2011.
However, Campbell has since spent the past three years away from the FA Cup champions on-loan with Lorient, Real Betis and most recently Olympiakos.
The starlet is yet to play a match for Wenger’s men, but with the Frenchman admitting his squad needs support in attack that looks set to change.
Campbell generally operates from the right flank, although can also play on the left and in the centre and would be competing with the likes of Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski for a place in the starting XI.
The Costa Rican has played 32 times for his nation to date and scored 10 goals.
