Real Betis striker Joel Campbell confident of Arsenal future

Arsenal striker Joel Campbell is enjoying his loan at Real Betis.

The Costa Rica international is impressing in his first season in the Primera Division.

"Arsenal noticed me when I was playing with Costa Rica in the Copa America of 2011. They came and showed interest. I signed with the English club for five seasons. It is one of the best teams in the world, offering me great career potential. It's a great club," Campbell told marca.com.

"For now I just think about the Betis. I could stay at Arsenal, but a problem with the work permit meant I had to go out on loan. Last year I played with the French Lorient and this season I'm in Spain. If I signed for five seasons it is because Arsenal are including me in their future."
