Southampton fans bring a positive mood to the Football Transfer Tavern after talkSPORT revealed that their manager Ronald Koeman is preparing a loan swoop for Arsenal’s striking outcast Joel Campbell.
The Dutch manager is looking at the young Costa Rican international to help maintain their good form and also take some pressure off Graziano Pelle who has not scored in Premier League since their emphatic 8-0 win over Sunderland.
Southampton fans are confident they can pull off a loan deal after the 22-year-old voiced his frustration in recent weeks having slipped behind Yaya Sanogo in the Gunners’ attacking pecking order.
The forward was hopeful of fulfilling his potential this campaign but since the arrivals of Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez, he has been starved of first team football and it is rumoured he could leave the Emirates Stadium as early as January.
This means that in the potential loan move, there could be a clause in the deal which would be a set price that Southampton could pay to sign him permanently should the loan move prove successful of course.
