Giancarlo Gonzalez would welcome Arsenal striker to Palermo


Palermo defender Giancarlo Gonzalez says Arsenal striker Joel Campbell would be a good signing for the Serie A club.

The Costa Rica international is expected to leave the Emirates during the summer transfer window with Palermo strong favourites to secure his services.

And Gonzalez, who plays alongside Campbell for the Costa Rican national team, says he would welcome the 23-year-old to the Stadio Renzo Barbera.

"I read that Palermo are interested in [Arsenal striker Joel] Campbell," he told reporters.

"He would be a good signing, he possesses pace and is extremely good in the one against one.

"He is different than [former Palermo striker Paulo] Dybala so it's not easy to compare the two.

"His favourite role? You have to ask him if he prefers to play in the middle or on the wing.

"If I spoke to him? No, not really, but I would support him if he decides to come here."
