The Daily Star is reporting that Newcastle are interested in three Arsenal players – they are 22 year-old right-back Carl Jenkinson, 22 year-old Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell, and young German attacking midfielder Serge Gnabry, whom Pardew would like to get on loan for the season.
Joel Campbell – would be a great loan signing
Newcastle have already signed Daryl Janmaat, the Holland first choice right-back, so we doubt there will be any more interest in Jenkinson, who would probably cost too much in any case – being an Englishman.
But Joel Campbell and Serge Gnabry could be two targets – and maybe both players could be brought in on loan for next season.
Since we really need two strikers brought in this summer, one of them will probably be a loan signing and Joel Campbell would fit the bill perfectly.
Serge Gnabry – top young German attacking midfielder/winger
Serge is a potential star of the future, but the only problem we have with bringing Serge in on loan, is that could limit the playing time of some of our very own youngsters – like Adam Armstrong, Adam Campbell and Rolando Aarons.
Campbell has never played for the Arsenal first team in a competitive game – but he has been out on loan over the last three seasons, and played a total of 111 games with 17 goals and 18 assists at the following clubs:
Club Games Goals Assists Olympiacos Piraeus 43 11 12 Real Betis 33 2 3 FC Lorient 27 4 3 Puntarenas FC 5 0 0 Deportivo Saprissa 3 0 0 Total: 111 17 18
And with the arrival of top Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal this summer, Arsene Wenger may think it best that Joel again goes out on loan.
Joel would be an excellent loan signing for Newcastle, and who knows – we may even be able to get him as a permanent signing before September rolls around.
