Leicester linked with loan move for Arsenal’s Joel Campbell
Leicester City could launch an attempt to land Joel Campbell on loan in the January transfer window, according to reports.
The Costa Rica international, aged 22, has failed to make the breakthrough expected with the Gunners so far this season and now looks set to be shipped out in the new year.
Italian side Inter Milan and Portuguese champions Benfica are both known to be interested, with Benfica having had a deadline day attempt to land Campbell turned down by Arsene Wenger during the summer.
But the Foxes are a surprise new addition to the list of potential destinations.
Manager Nigel Pearson is keen to bring Campbell to the King Power Stadium, claims Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, citing British sources.
That would give Wenger the chance to see Campbell in action in the Premier League regularly without having to throw him into the Arsenal team.
