Arsenal striker Joel Campbell is looking for a move away from the Gunners in January, so he can get some playing time, since he’s certainly not been getting much of that at Arsenal this season.
Joel Campbell – playing for Coast Rica at the World Cup
The Costa Rican striker has played only three times in total for the Gunners this season, and twice in the Premier league, and over the last four seasons he was sent out on loan.
But Arsene Wenger decided to keep him in the Arsenal squad for this season, but has hardly used him.
The Mirror is reporting he is becoming a little restless, and the news is that Inter Milan and Fiorentina in Italy are both interested in taking the striker, who looked good in the World Cup last summer in Brazil.
Joel has had loan spells at Saprissa, Puntarenas, Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiacos over the last four years, and he hasn’t been able to make the bench at Arsenal over the last few games.
On those various loan spells he’s played 114 games with 17 goals.
Newcastle have only Cisse, Riviere and young Perez as strikers this season, after we failed to bring in a top striker in the summer.
So Newcastle could do a lot worse than move for him in January, maybe on a loan deal through the end of the season.
The skillful 22 year-old can still improve, and he hasn’t really been given a chance in the Premier league to show what he is capable of.
Joel could be a useful addition to our striker ranks in January, and we could then see how well he does before deciding on any possible permanent move.
