Joel Campbell news

Campbell could play for Arsenal next season

Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell expects to return to Arsenal after World Cup finals in Brazil.

The 21-year-old joined the Gunners in the summer of 2011, but could not make an appearance for the club due to failure to obtain a work permit. Having spent the past few seasons on loan at Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiacos respectively, the talented striker revealed that he would return to the North London outfit for the pre-season.

"Of course I have to go back, because I have a contract with Arsenal," He said. "The most important thing just now is my country and the World Cup."

Campbell was on target as Costa Rica beat Uruguay by a 3-1 scoreline in a major World Cup upset.
