Arsene Wenger hopes to keep Joel Campbell, even though the forward has been strongly linked with a move away from Arsenal.
Campbell has failed to make much of an impact as an Arsenal player and has been farmed out on loan a number of times, as he looks to get the game time he deserves.
And amid talk that he could be on his way to Real Sociedad on a permanent deal, Wenger hopes Campbell weill stay.
“At the moment he is here and personally I would like to keep him,” Wenger said on the Sky Sports website.
“I will have to sit down with Joel because I rate him highly as a player and personally if he stays here I am very happy.”
