Report: Arsenal forward Joel Campbell set to join Galatasaray in January

It seems the Costa Rican is finally set to leave the Gunners this winter.

It is being reported in Turkey that Arsenal are all set to let Joel Campbell leave the club this January, with his next move seemingly already decided.

It is reported by Haber Kita that Turkish giants Galatasaray have agreed to sign the player from the Gunners after it became clear that the Costa Rican international does not fare in the future plans of Arsene Wenger at The Emirates.

Campbell has been heavily linked with a move to the Turkish side in the past and it seems he will finally be on his way to Istanbul.

Campbell, a 2011 signing from Costa Rican outfit Saprissa, has spent time out on loan from Arsenal at four different clubs - Lorient, Real Betis, Olympiakos and Villarreal.

After his excellent form at the FIFA World Cup in 2014 it was hoped he might become an Arsenal regular but he has struggled to force himself into the recognition.

He has played just 13 times for Arsenal since that summer and his career in North London appears to be over.

He will join former Arsenal team-mate Lukas Podolski in Turkey for a fee reported by Haber Kita to be in the region of £1.85 million.
