Arsenal to sacrifice rising star in order to land Portuguese midfielder?

william carvalhoArsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are unsure whether this is the right move for the Gunners after talkSPORT revealed that Arsene Wenger could use Joel Campbell in a deal to sign Sporting Lisbon’s defensive midfielder William Carvalho.

The Portuguese giants are supposedly willing to accept an offer of £22m for the Carvalho but this is only if the North London club include Campbell in the deal.

Campbell, who plays for Costa Rica, is currently on loan to Villarreal after he has struggled to establish himself at the Emirates, as he has only made just four substitute appearances in the Premier League, since joining in 2011.

But Wenger could sacrifice his loaned out striker for Carvalho, a player who he has admired for a long time.

The Lisbon midfielder would be an ideal addition to the team and he would be competing for a place with Francis Coquelin, who has made a huge impact, since returning from his loan at Charlton.
