If rumours are to be believed, half of our squad will be playing in Turkey next season.
This time, it’s Joel Campbell who’s been linked with Galatasaray.
The forward has been outstanding for us this season. Since both Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlains’ legs fell off against Sheffield Wednesday in the league cup, Campbell has stepped up and has now taken up a permanent place in the starting XI.
The 23-year-old’s work rate is unreal and now he’s got some regular playing time, his skill has caught up. He’s been a huge asset for us when we’ve needed him.
It’s hard to believe that the Costa Rican could have left last summer.
Although I’m sure Gala (and many others) are probably interested in Joel, I don’t see Wenger giving him up. If we didn’t sell him in the summer when we could have taken money without even witnessing his progress, why would we now after seeing how good he is?
It’d be like us buying a striker to replace Giroud. Why put so much faith and time into a player, just to get rid of them?
