Joel Campbell could be heading for the exit door today with reports from the Mirror suggesting the player has grown tired of his lack of action with the Gunners.
The versatile attacker had been talked up by Arsene Wenger as ‘not for sale‘, however Alexis Sanchez and Yaya Sanogo are clearly preferred up front not to mention the likes of Lukas Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain and the returning Theo Walcott all standing in his way.
The Costa Rican has spent several seasons out on loan, netting eight in 32 with Olympiakos last campaign but has seemed to struggle to win over the faith of Wenger despite their lack of options up front.
Benefica have been credited with an interest in the player as have AC Milan, and it appears another loan deal is on the cards.
Reports have also emerged that Campbell was offered to QPR as a make weight in a potential Loic Remy deal, however the London club were not interested in the Costa Rica international and Remy secured his move to Chelsea.

Certainly Campbell will not be leaving unless Wenger can sign another centre forward, but it’s anyone’s guess to who we may actually get today….If anyone.
