Arsene Wenger: I don't rule out that this striker will one day play regularly for Arsenal


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not ruled out the possibility of giving striker Joel Campbell a regular place in his squad next season.

The Costa Rican has joined Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on a season-long loan.

He has struggled to enjoy regular first-team football since he moved to the Emirates and was loaned out to Lorient, Betis, Olympiakos and Villarreal in recent seasons.

And according to the Frenchman, Sporting will be a good opportunity for the 24-year-old ahead of his return to Arsenal.

"I believe that he's a bit of a victim of the size of the squad," Wenger explained.

"He is now at an age where he needs to play more regularly and I don't rule out that he comes back here and plays. He has gone to Sporting Lisbon and I think it's an interesting championship.

"Portugal always has an interesting championship and let's see how it goes for him."
