Arsenal forward Joel Campbell has revealed that he wants to stay at the Premier League outfit and fight for his place in the team.
“What they have been saying is not true. I’m very calm. I have not been furious,” Campbell told www.sports.bycampbell.com.
“Obviously I would like to be playing but that’s something that has to be earned day by day. I have to keep training and waiting for the opportunity. I know it’s a very competitive team.
“Arsenal is one of the best teams in the world where there are many important players. I have to be patient, keep training and I know my chance will arrive and I’ll have to take advantage of it when it comes.
“I have learned a lot from Arsene Wenger. He is a coach who has many years in football and with Arsenal. I am learning from him and from my peers every day in training. I’m doing my best to be a better player every day.”
Campbell has made just two Premier League appearances this season despite Wenger deciding to keep him in London this season after a series of good performances for Costa Rica at the 2014 World Cup.
Galatasaray have been keeping tabs on Campbell for the past two-seasons and were close to agreeing a deal with the Costa Rican international this summer.
