Joel Campbell On Verge Of Arsenal Move

17 Jul

Joel Campbell is set to join Arsenal after his father revealed that his son has signed a 5-year-deal with the gunners and is awaiting a ‘special talent’ visa. If he fails to receive one, he is likely to go out on loan, like Carlos Vela, Ryo Miyachi and Wellington Silva. The deal is reportedly worth 1.5million.

The Costa Rican has only played 3 times for his current club, C.D. Saprissa, scoring one goal. The 19 year old has also been capped 5 times for his country, scoring two goals. However he has been prolific for the youth Costa Rican teams, finishing top Costa Rican scorer in the U17 team for the 2009 CONCACAF U17 Championship with 2 goals, and tournament top scorer in the U20 team for the 2011 CONCACAF U20 Championship this year, finishing with 6 goals.

Many other top clubs are interested in the 5ft 10in striker, but singled out and commented on Arsenal’s offer, saying “Who wouldn’t want to play for Arsenal?”
