I think it is fair to say that the majority of Arsenal fans last summer had much higher hopes that one of our young strikers Joel Campbell was going to have a much bigger influence on the season for the Gunners as another in the shape of Yaya Sanogo.
Even though the tall Frenchman had played 14 times for us in all competitions during the previous season and had received praise for the manager and the football media alike, he had failed to find the back of the net, at least one that had not been ruled offside, so it looked like a loan deal for Sanogo would be most likely.
That was even more likely after Campbell had been granted a work permit and had impressed for Costa Rica at the World Cup finals. As we know though, Campbell could not force his way into the side and was clearly not happy with his lack of chances on the pitch.
Now it is fair to say that the future at Arsenal looks much brighter for Sanogo than Campbell, even though a Daily Star report has revealed that the transfer talks about the Costa Rican moving to Real Sociedad have broken down. Even if this deal does not get done, there is no place for Campbell in north London.
Sanogo on the other hand is heading off to Holland to play on loan for Ajax where we hope him to play and perfect his trade under the watchful gaze of Dennis Bergkamp. The great man confirmed the move today in another Daily Star report and with a bit of Bergkamp magic rubbing off, will Sanogo return to Arsenal and prove his doubters wrong?
