Joel Campbell wanted by two Premier League clubs


Two Premier League sides want to sign Arsenal forward Joel Campbell this summer, Gooner Talk understands.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on loan at Olympiakos, has flourished in Greece this season, winning the Greek Super League and racking up 10 goals and 11 assists in 30 appearances.

Campbell, 21, joined the Gunners in 2011 from Deportivo Saprissa and was granted a work permit last summer following a season on loan to Real Betis, but manager Arsene Wenger still decided to send him to the continent for another term.

“I don’t know what will happen [with Arsenal]”, Campbell recently told Al Dia.

“I have 2 years left on my contract with Arsenal they’ll decide what will happen.”

In-demand forward Campbell is expected to be a key part of Costa Rica’s World Cup campaign where he will get another chance to showcase his talent to Gunners boss Wenger who remains keen on bringing him back to Arsenal after the summer tournament.

Two Premier League clubs, believed to be Newcastle and Swansea, have already made tentative enquiries for Campbell, while Olympiakos are hopeful that the former Lorient loanee will opt to make his stay at Karaiskakis Stadium permanent.
