Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal fans believe forgotten star Joel Campbell could be playing an integral role at the Emirates this season after he shared an image of himself apparently returning to the UK.
It comes despite the Costa Rica international having endured a frustrating time as a Gunner.
Since he moved to the club in 2011 he has been sent out on five different loan spells and played just 40 games for the Gunners.
His most recent loan was with Sporting Lisbon, where he found the back of the net three times in 28 appearances.
With just a year to the end of his Arsenal contract it had been thought Campbell would be released from the club this summer. However a serious knee injury suffered last month while on international duty looks likely to keep him at the Emirates for the final year of his deal.
He appears to be coming back to the UK, with the 25-year-old winger sharing an image of himself aboard a plane.
It triggered Arsenal fans to express a belief he could have a role to play at the club – possible as a wing-back in the system being used by Arsene Wenger this season.
Save us Joel.

You would be great as a wingback but unfortunately the manager is pretty clueless.

The pleas for Campbell to come back and save Arsenal came after yesterday’s frustrating defeat to Stoke. The Gunners lost 1-0 at the Britannia with a number of crucial decisions failing to go as plan.
But any thoughts of Campbell providing a quick-fix must be dismissed with his knee injury expected to keep him out of action until early 2018.
