Arsenal loan star determined to return

Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell says that he is eager to show his abilities at Olympiakos to earn a return to Arsenal.

The 21-year-old striker is currently on a season long loan at the Greek side, where he has been impressive.

His wonderful goal against Manchester United in the Champions League recently has sparked talk of a possible return, with the Gunners still thought to value their Central American ace highly.

Despite having signed for the Londoners in 2011, Campbell is yet to have made any sort of impact at the club, spending each season out on loan – with Lorient and Real Betis.

Yet he hasn’t given up on a return to Arsenal, even though he does not know if it will happen next season or not:

“I do nothing more than focus on playing for the team, whether Olympiakos, whether in Real Betis, whether in Orien,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“For me it has been an experience that has made me grow as a player. It’s not the time to say whether I will play at Arsenal or not.

“But, if I get that chance to play there, I will do as I have always done in my life, fight and believe in myself.

“I know I have the qualities to be where I want but I have to improve a lot. I have to work day by day so I can be there.”

Arsene Wenger gave the young front-man hope that he may be in line for a return after praising his display against United.
