Arsenal fans on Twitter gutted to see Campbell near an exit

Arsenal could be on the verge of allowing Costa Rican international Joel Campbell leave the club for Italy as Frosinone have registered an interest in the winger. However, a lot of fans are sad to see him leave and would have been keen to give him another chance under Unai Emery.

After the 2014 World Cup, a lot of Arsenal fans believed that Joel Campbell was the next big talent at the club. The winger had been on their books for a long time and after impressing in the Champions League against Manchester United whilst on-loan at Olympiacos, the 26-year-old used the World Cup in Brazil to elevate himself. Arsene Wenger gave him a stint in the side the next season but things never materialised for Campbell.

Since that World Cup four years ago, the Costa Rican has had more loan spells with Villarreal, Sporting and Real Betis and with none of those clubs willing to take on the 26-year-old on a permanent deal, this move to Frosinone seems like Campbell’s last chance to make it for himself. Arsenal fans will be gutted that things haven’t worked out, but overall, it seems like the right decision is being made.
