Arsenal striker Joel Campbell says he can offer something to the first team next season.

Campbell has just completed a 12-month loan at Lorient.

Campbell believes he has what it takes to break into the squad, much as midfielder Francis Coquelin did following his loan spell in France.

"That's what I'm hoping for - to play for Arsenal next year. I think I've got the ability to do it. I've got every confidence in my ability to go to Arsenal and play," Campbell told Arsenal Player.

"I have learned how to live with other people in a different country to mine, to be here living life outside football, to learn about the training and the intensity of the game in Ligue 1.

"That's all helped me to learn things so I can continue my football career with Arsenal, and I hope that's going to happen."
