Arsenal In Negotiations With Saprissa Striker
According to Gunnerblog Arsenal are in for Deportiva Saprissa and Costa Rica Striker Joel Campbell. The 19 year old has been one of the stars for Costa Rica during the Copa America and it looks like it has firmed up Arsenal’s interest in him. Richard Law recently landed to start negotiations with the player’s team and if you go to the link up above there is a video there of Law arriving. Campbell only has 12 months left on his contract, and Campbell would like negotiations concluded before the U-20 World Cup. Arsenal will be looking to conclude talks quickly as well with there being interest from Spain and Italy.
The 19 year old is very skilled, left footed, full of confidence and can play both as a center forward or on the wings. Arsenal may be looking to sign him based on the fact that Chamakh and Gervinho will both be gone in January for the AFC. Campbell is a full time National Team player so he shouldn’t have a problem getting a work permit. Here is a video of him and when I have more information I will add it!
