Joel Campbell: I feel that I can contribute with my skills


Arsenal striker Joel Campbell says the Gunners can take advantage of a number of top-class players in their offensive department.

Manager Arsene Wenger succeeded in building a strong forward line aided by the technical skills of midfielders like Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez with the 22-year-old particularly impressed by the Spaniard.

"Arsene Wenger has many good options to line up a great attacking force," Campbell told the club's official website.

"I must say that Santi Cazorla has some exceptional technical skills.

"He can take corners or free-kicks equally with his right or left foot. That's some technique!

"That is a very unusual thing to see and it has left me astonished."

With the arrival of Danny Welbeck from Manchester United, the Costa Rica international knows it will be difficult to secure a regular place in Arsene Wenger's.

But he is ready to work hard to convince the manager.

"I presume that every attacking player in the squad will fight with me for a starting place," added Campbell.

"But I am my biggest competitor - I have to train hard and get better day after day. Being here is a great opportunity for me.

"I feel that I can contribute with speed, goals and dribbling skills.

"I am a player capable of playing either on the right or left flanks or in the middle.

"It's down to the manager to decide which of those three positions I am needed most in. I just have to do my best anywhere I play."
