Turkish clubs Fenerbahce and Galatasary continue to monitor Joel Campbell’s situation at Arsenal in the hopes that they can land the Costa Rican.

Drafted into the Arsenal side due to the fact that all the other forwards at the club are made of fibreglass, Campbell has struggled to seize his chance and looked well out of his depth against Bayern Munich (though, to be fair, so did most of the side during the game at the Allianz).

Reports coming out of Turkey claim that Fenerbahce are leading the chase but it also claimed that Campbell will be out of contract next summer and, therefore, able to talk to other clubs when the January window opens which is not true.

Before he was shipped off on his last loan to Villareal in January, Campbell was handed a new long term contract by the club as they looked to protect their investment.

It’s hard to see Campbell having any sort of long term future at Arsenal – he’s just not good enough – but while the club tries to deal with injuries and a poor market for reinforcements, it’s unlikely that he will be going anywhere.

Well, not in January at least.
