The Costa Rica international - who starred at the World Cup in Brazil - is reportedly furious with Arsene Wenger for being axed from the past two matchday squads.

Campbell did not make the cut for Saturday's Premier League win over Burnley or the Gunners 18-man list for Tuesday's Champions League draw with Anderlecht.

He's also been restricted to just one senior start in the Capital One Cup defeat against Southampton, despite indications he would have a more important role in the team this year, especially after Wenger blocked a proposed loan move to Benfica.

And, with Yaya Sanogo back in the reckoning and Olivier Giroud closing in on an early return to fitness, the 22-year-old's prospects don't look any brighter, which could force an Arsenal exit.
