scored ten times in twelve appearances at Under-20 level, including two
goals in three appearances in the Under-20 World Cup in Colombia.

Deportivo Saprissa and on loan at Puntarenas, making a total of eight
league appearances.

Deportivo Saprissa is one of the top clubs in the CONCACAF region and has won the Costa Rican Premier League a record 29 times.

The transfer is subject to the completion of formal agreements and processes.

Manager Arsène Wenger said: “Joel Campbell has already shown that he is
a player with great ability, and has also performed well on the
international stage at a young age. We look forward to the formalities
of the transfer being completed and working with Joel when he joins us
at Arsenal."
