PHOTO: Arsenal's Joel Campbell with Alexis Sanchez in training - could he start?


Arsenal winger Joel Campbell has posted a picture of himself and Alexis Sanchez in training.

Arsenal's Joel Campbell has posted a photograph of himself in training with Alexis Sanchez on social networking site Twitter.

The Costa Rican international was kept at Arsenal this season by Arsene Wenger as the French boss felt that he could offer them a new attacking dimension, but so far his chances have been limited. 

Indeed, the most his opportunities to play with Sanchez so far have come in training matches and his future at the Emirates Stadium has been questioned as a result.

Campbell is of interest to a number of clubs and, unless he is handed more first-team starts he could find himself out on loan once again. 

The 22-year-old has played just six times for the Gunners this season, with most his appearances coming from the substitutes' bench. 

There could be a chance that he can make his claim for a spot in the first-team against Southampton in midweek, though.

Campbell was selected for the Capital One Cup clash against the Saints, which the North London side lost, earlier in the season and he will be hoping to take to the field again on Wednesday night.

Arsenal are currently without Theo Walcott through injury and Campbell's similar skill-set could be something which Arsene Wenger looks to use more often in the England international's absence.
