Bringing him back? Campbell scores again…while Oxlade-Chamberlain and Iwobi disappoint
While Arsenal’s young wingers Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were fluffing their lines this weekend, one of the club’s loaned-out stars was coming up with the goods elsewhere.
Arsene Wenger opted against the signing of a new attacking midfielder during the summer transfer window despite being strongly linked with a move for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez and a host of players with a similar style.
The Arsenal manager’s decision to keep faith in what he has in the current squad saw him offload a couple of players deemed as surplus options as Serge Gnabry was sold to Werder Bremen while Joel Campbell went out on loan to Sporting Lisbon where is enjoying life at the moment.
The Costa Rican international recently scored a vital late goal for the Portuguese side and he has followed that up with another contribution to remember.
Campbell produced an assist and found the target in Sporting’s 3-0 victory over Arouca.
