Any Arsenal fan who was not excited by the prospect that is Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell soon had that feeling remedied last month - when the on loan Olympiakos player managed to outgun Manchester United in the Champions League.
Campbell scored an exquisite goal in Piraeus to make it 2-0 in the first-leg of the sides Champions League tie - which United eventually won 3-2 on aggregate.
After the game he announced his desire to return to Arsenal from his loan spell at the end of the season:
“As soon as Arsenal came, I wanted to join them and I believe I am ready to play for Arsenal next season. I know I have the capacity to play there. I am only waiting for the opportunity. With hard work I know I can get there. United showed an interest in me when I was moving to Europe but I have been an Arsenal fan since I was a child and that’s why I chose them.”
And Arsenal fans were happy to hear it. They were clearly impressed with the performance of their talented player - and excited at the prospect of his return.
But that return may never come - at least if fresh reports in Turkey are to be believed.
We brought news from Istanbul two weeks ago suggesting that Fenerbahce were keen on a €10 million move for the player.
Now it seems they are not the only Turkish powerhouse taking a keen interest in his services.
Rivals Galatasaray are now also said to be looking into the possibility of snapping up the player - after being impressed with his performances across the Aegean Sea.
Arsenal will of course be reluctant to sell - but as Chelsea found out with Kevin De Bruyne this season performances out on loan do not necessarily translate into good form upon a return to your parent club.
While the iron is hot Arsenal could cash in - but it would be a gamble that could catastrophically backfire if he goes on to become a superstar.
