According to reports making the round, Arsenal have been hit with a major blow ahead of the start of the 2017/18 League season as Joel Campbell has been ruled out for six months.

We understand that the 25-year-old player was on international duty when he picked up the knock against Canada and it will now require surgery. Campbell will now miss the rest of Costa Rica’s Gold Cup campaign and also throws his club career into doubt.

Campbell spent last season on loan with Sporting CP, but was only given 18 Primeira Liga outings, and he will be disappointed with his lack of playing time throughout the campaign.

The 25 year-old has been forced to endure five different loan spells since joining Arsenal back in 2011, but was given a chance to earn a regular role in our side in the 2015-16 season, and while the fans enjoyed his impact in the team, Arsene Wenger was seemingly unconvinced.
