In-demand Arsenal forward dismisses links with shock move away

While rumours of the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil┬ápotentially┬ádeparting have rocked the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, it’s fair to say Joel Campbell doesn’t command quite the same gravitas.

Still, the Costa Rican winger emerged as a palpable goal threat when called upon last season and put himself in the good books of the Gunners faithful.

So, reports linking with him a move to Valencia still came as unwelcome news in North London, despite his relatively low standing in the pecking order.

Surely, he’d do a better job than Theo Walcott?

However, the 24-year old has reiterated his desire to stay at the Emirates Stadium this season and fight for his place under Arsene Wenger.

The French tactician has invested a lot of time into the forward, having signed him from his homeland in 2011, before loaning him out to the likes of Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiacos.

As a result, Campbell has announced on his official website that he intends to stay at the club and help their title tilt.

“I have had a good holiday and now I am happy to train, to return strong, to prepare myself well in this preseason for the new campaign for which I have high expectations and I will fight with everything to have the opportunity to play and to show what I can give.

“Last season was my first full season with the team from start to finish and to me it was a very productive time, I played 30 games and that was very important for me and made me mature a lot.

”I could show what I’m made of, and at last the team and the fans were happy with what I have done.”

Arsenal fans, do you think Campbell can blossom into a first-team regular over the next few seasons? Let us know below….
