With the Arsenal, his owner club, finalizes contract on June 30, 2019, although the English do not seem willing to have him for the next year. From Turkey and Italy several teams have probed Campbell’s situation, with Genoa being the last to test that possibility.
Last season, the speedy winger almost did not have chances at Betis, especially due to a knee injury that took him several months out of the field. With this, Campbell only played 232 minutes in total in eight LaLiga games and one in the Copa del Rey, having scored two goals and giving a goal pass.
This Wednesday he will also bid farewell to the World Cup in Russia in Switzerland-Costa Rica, since his team is eliminated from the second day of the group stage. Campbell will wait for an opportunity from the bench, according to what his coach Óscar Ramírez has been training these days.
