Arsenal have done a lot of things throughout the course of the summer transfer window, but there’s one thing they categorically haven’t done: and that’s waste time. The Gunners have been ruthless in going after the kind of players that Unai Emery believes will improve the team, and while we won’t see the end result until the actual season kicks off, the early signs have been extremely positive. Now, according to Sky Sources, their latest transfer could be a matter of days away from being announced.
There are quite a few young Arsenal fringe players that are hoping that Mr Wenger doesn’t buy too many stars but promotes his youngsters into the Gunners first team.
One of these is the Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell, who after a successful loan period at Lorient in Ligue 1, feels he is now ready and willing to take his rightful place in the Arsenal first team.
“That’s what I’m hoping for – to play for Arsenal next year,” Campbell said. “I think I’ve got the ability to do it. I’ve got every confidence in my ability to go to Arsenal and play.
