Arsenal Break Off Negotiations With Campbell…Blessing In Disguise?
So everyone basically already knows that we’ve broken off negotiations for Joel Campbell, well besides everyone whose not an Arsenal fan. They are being fed that Manchester United has once again beat Arsenal to it, when in reality Campbell just didn’t show up to a scheduled meeting with Law. Campbell and his father did not show up, most likely because they are trying to get as much money as possible out of the deal. Thanks to gunnerblog for bringing us the story every day.
Arsenal are still short of a striker though and it looks like this deal not happening has been a blessing in disguise for Benik Afobe. Young Guns is reporting that Afobe has been withdrawn from the reserves and will be getting some game time against Cologne on Saturday. Afobe enjoyed a very successful year on loan with Huddersfield last season and Arsene is going to reward him with a chance to prove that Campbell wasn’t worth 2 million.
