Arsenal striker Joel Campbell has had a spell at the Emirates stadium since he joined the team from Saprissa in 2011.

The 26-year-old attacker made 40 appearances under Arsene Wenger before losing his place in the Frenchman’s starting lineup.

Due to his lack of first-team actions for the Gunners, the Costa Rican international was loaned out to La Liga side Real Betis throughout last season.

His time at the North London club is reportedly set to be over this summer as Serie A side Lazio have developed an interest in his signature.

According to Bola VIP, the Italian side are looking for a speedy and skilful winger, who will operate from either of the flanks and they have identified the 26-year-old as the perfect player to fit into their formation for next season.

Campbell is also being tracked by Turkish side Fenerbahce this summer.

The Turkish giants are ready to go extreme miles to ensure they capture his signature before the start of next season.

It remains unknown if the Gunners would love to sell him outrightly or loan him out for the third consecutive seasons.

The striker — who is valued at £20m by Arsenal — was in action for his country, Costa Rica, at the 2018 world cup in Russia but he was unable to help the team qualify to the knockout stages of the competition.

He is presently with the Gunners squad, who are set for their pre-season tour.
