Olympiakos loanee Campbell could well be back in England next season.
After scoring for Olympiakos in their 2-0 Champions League win over Manchester United on Wednesday, Arsenal loan star Joel Campbell could be set to impress in England next season.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that the Costa Rican’s rise to prominence in Greece this term means that the forward could well get a chance at the Emirates Stadium in 2014/15.
“He was good [against Manchester United], convincing in going forward, he looks like he has adapted better to the physical side of the European game,” the Frenchman was quoted by the Metro.
“We knew always that he had the talent to create something special.
“I will decide [his future] later, but why not? We bought him to bring him here.”
Campbell joined the north London side in 2011 from Deportivo Saprissa in the winger’s home nation of Costa Rica, but has since spent time on-loan with FC Lorient, Real Betis and now Olympiakos.
Whilst in Athens the 21-year-old has played 32 times in all competitions to date, scoring 10 goals and providing 11 assists and has been an important presence in their strong European campaign.
If Wenger does choose to bring Campbell back to England then the attacker would bolster what is considered to be a weak strike force at the club.
With the capability the play on either flank or as a striker the youngster would help bolster the attack at the Emirates, competing with the likes of Nicklas Bendtner, Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski, Yaya Sanogo and Theo Walcott for a place in the starting XI.
