Joel Campbell is likely to go out on loan again despite receiving a work permit which allows him to play for Arsenal this season.
The Costa Rican striker has spent the last two seasons on loan, at Lorient in Ligue 1 and last season at Real Betis is La Liga, after the protracted saga to sign him in the summer of 2011.
Any expectation that he might be incorporated into Arsene Wenger’s side for the upcoming campaign appeared to be misplaced as his agent told ESPN that he was working with the club to find him somewhere to play.
“Joel has received his visa and I am in London with him working on his future. I had meetings with Arsenal and we are working on his next destination.”
It seems likely that the Gunners will want him to go on loan in England, to adapt to the football here, and Crystal Palace were last month linked with a season long deal.
