Arsenal transfers: Joel Campbell linked with move to Serie A

Arsenal transfers: Joel Campbell could be in line for a summer move to Serie A, says striker's agent

Joel Campbell could be in line for a summer transfer to Serie A, according to the Arsenal striker’s agent.

The 20-year-old Costa Rica international, who scored in the World Cup win over Uruguay in Brazil last month, is yet to play for the Gunners following his move to the club in 2011 after loan spells at Lorient, Real Betis and Olympiacos.

Campbell said recently that he expects to return to Emirates Stadium ahead of next season following his latest temporary stint at Olympiacos.

But the forward’s agent has suggested that his client could be set for a move to Italy ahead of the 2014-15 campaign.

Ruggero Lacerenza told the Sun: “Italian clubs are after Campbell. Various top-tier clubs often make enquiries.”

Speaking last week, Campbell said: “I believe I’ll be returning to Arsenal for next season.”

Campbell scored eight league goals for Olympiacos last season.
