Portuguese publication O Jogo claim that Joel Campbell is once again a target for Sporting Lisbon.
It’s not the first time the Portuguese giants have been linked with the Costa Rican attacker, a couple of years ago a similar story did the rounds but it ultimately came to nothing.
Campbell was a mainstay of Arsene Wenger’s squad during pre-season but, somewhat surprisingly, didn’t even make the bench for the season curtain-raiser against Liverpool.
Having established himself as a bona fide first team option last campaign – and in light of our transfer market inertia – it would be a bit of a surprise if Campbell were to leave in the next couple of weeks.
That said, it’s us. And we’re weird these days.
