A link that emerged prior to the World Cup, Newcastle may find it difficult to convince Arsenal to do business over Campbell now. The Costa Rican forward has been hugely impressive in his nation’s unexpected run to the Quarter Finals and may have just forced his way into Arsene Wenger’s reckoning for next season.
The 22 year old netted this brilliant leveller against Uruguay in the opening group fixture.
Capable of playing centrally or on either flank, the forward would provide a versatile addition to Newcastle’s attacking options. A loan at this stage would be likelier but this hasn’t stopped some Magpies fans on Twitter urging Mike Ashley and Pardew to act.
