Newcastle United should move for the Arsenal man this summer.

Plenty of Arsenal players have been linked with moves away from North London in the summer transfer window.

There is constant speculation about Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, while the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud have also been linked away.

But one man who hasn't commanded so many column inches is Joel Campbell.

The Costa Rican winger is set to return from a season-long loan at Sporting Lisbon - his fifth loan since joining Arsenal in 2011 - and with his contract due to expire next summer, the Gunners could well offload him on a permanent basis this summer.

If that proves the case then Newcastle United should be heading the queue for his signature.

Speculation is rife that Newcastle are interested in Angers winger Nicolas Pepe (via The Independent) but at £15 million Campbell is a much better option for now.

The 24-year-old, who has competed in quarter-finals in both the Champions League and World Cup, has looked a real talent whenever Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given him time to impress in Premier League competition.

Campbell, who struggled to make an impact at Sporting, netted three league goals in 11 starts during the 2015-16 campaign, managing five assists in all competitions.

If the Magpies are interested in a winger then they could do a lot worse than Campbell, who is valued at around £6.1 million according to Transfermarkt.
