Some good news coming our of Arsenal today, the club have confirmed the signing of Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell from Costa Rican side Saprissa. Arsenal.com confirmed this news by saying:

Joel Campbell has been confirmed as an Arsenal player, with all formal agreements and processes relating to his transfer now complete.

Campbell, 19, who joins the Gunners fresh from representing Costa Rica at the U-20 World Cup in Colombia, is also a regular with his senior national team.

Everyone at Arsenal Football Club would like to welcome the young striker to the Club and look forward to his contributions to the team.

I am looking forward to seeing how Campbell does at the club. We have had some great strikers at Arsenal in the past and right now we need someone else to come in and help van Persie score the goals. Campbell may not be the solution right now but hopefully in two or three seasons time he could be our main man up-front.

    Well at least we got someone

    Although he’s only 19, I’m reminded of Jimmy Mullen (Wolves and England).
    First game for Wolves at 16 and capped for England at 19.
    As my Gran (who cleans at the Emirates) has always said “If you’re good enough, you’re old enough”.

    Well that is kk for Arsenal nw but Wenger should try his effort to buy a giant strickers and defenders to make Arsenal a complete standard club.Some strikers and defenders like Juan Mata,Hurk,Samba and so on.

    My problem still continues with Wenger: is this the critical thing at this moment? A player who cannot deliver immediately!
    I think he should concentrate on finished products that can bring trophies- enough of building d future perpetually!

  9. Arsenal needs an experience player not the type of cambel.We need player like juan mata,samba,jagielka.

  10. Wenger Needs To Spend Or Go says:

    Cool 🙂

    It woould be cool if he can also sign 2 or more of the following: Cahil, Sneijder, Hazard, Benzema, Mata, The 2 guys from Marsiel

  11. ALIU MALIQ says:

    Wenger u need player like juan mata,samba,bensema.pls,pls,pls.

    That brings our squad back up to the same amount as last year assuming nasri is a goner. yes we have 4 keepers 2 right backs 2 left backs 5 centre backs 9 midfielders 6 wingers and 3 strikers. really makes you wonder if wenger really will bring more in? i guess if any positions were under staffed it would be full backs and centre back as they are the only positions that cannot boast 3 per position. sure many positions could improved experience wise but lets not forget in that squad of 31 we boast 21 full internationals!

  13. Olatunji says:

  14. Dabwitso mwanza says:
