  1. Reporters and Media on Campbell, the truth is that, he is not going anywhere, He will play football in the Premier League. Why are you talking of Milan? Who told you that? Ask Wenger he will tell you that, the young man is going to be tested in the Premier League not Italian League as per your thoughts.

  2. Personally I don’t understand why Proff. doesn’t want to give Joel Campbell a chance.The lad is good and they is no reason as to why he should be given to another club.He can score goals too,including at the highest football stage!

  3. well about douglas costa story no body know whether they will accept the request presented by him or they will not honor his request as early stated, therefore am calling the management of arsenal they should remember the comments make by chairman and i quote that this season of transfer window he make sure that the buy a expenses players well out of the one reported no one reach amount he was mentioned before i believe that the arsenal have the capital purchasing best player in the world, fulfill the promised earlier stated by you chairman i hope you still have in mine before the time run out of hands.
