Twitter reacts as Wenger reportedly blocks Liverpool’s shock approach for Joel Campbell

Campbell shone in the 2014 World Cup for Costa Rica, winning four fouls per game.

Liverpool have been linked with a loan move for Arsenal star Joel Campbell but the Gunners are hoping to keep hold of him until at least January.

The forward has spent the last three seasons on loan with Lorient, Real Betis and then Olympiakos after signing for Arsenal in 2011. Work permit issues prevented him from joining up with the Gunners but he has now – finally – arrived at Arsenal.

Arsenal block Liverpool approach for Joel Campbell

Campbell, who starred for Costa Rica at the World Cup as they reached the quarter-finals for the first time, has impressed for the Gunners during a couple of pre-season games and looks set to play an important role for the north London club this summer.

He scored on his first appearance for the Gunners during the Emirates Cup in pre-season. They beat Benfica 5-1 and he and Yaya Sanogo were brilliant and his ability on the ball has seen clubs declare an interest already this summer. AC Milan have been reported as holding an interest but it has now emerged that Liverpool do, too.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the reports that Arsenal had rejected a loan approach from Liverpool.
