Arsenal youngster wanted by West Brom

Arsenal youngster Joel Campbell has emerged as a target for West Brom with Pepe Mel keen to bring his former charge to the Hawthorns if the club are able to maintain their Premier League status for another season.

Campbell, currently with Olympiacos, is in his third successive season away from Arsenal on loan but spent last term under the tutelage of Mel at Real Betis. The Costa Rica international scored only two goals during his time in La Liga, but has enhanced his reputation in Greece this season.

The 21-year-old has scored nine times for Olympiacos, including a memorable strike against Manchester United during a 2-0 Champions League victory, and the Birmingham Mail reports that Mel is keen to be reunited with Campbell after his contract with the Greek champions expires.

Campbell has yet to make an appearance for Arsenal since signing from Saprissa in 2011, but Arsene Wenger claimed after the forward’s impressive display against Manchester United that he would have a future at the Emirates Stadium.

However, a return to Arsenal on a full-time basis for next season would still seem relatively unlikely particularly given that Wenger will move to reinforce his goalscoring ranks in the summer transfer window with the addition of a reputable name or two.

It would, though, make sense for Campbell to finally be handed a crack at the Premier League next term, so it may be that Wenger allows the player to join West Brom should they remain in the division.
