Arsenal have finally reached an agreement with Deportivo Saprissa to wrap up the protracted transfer of Joel Campbell. The Costa Rican striker is due in London on Sunday to tie up the formalities.
Campbell was first subject of Arsenal interest two weeks ago, when executive Richard Law travelled to South America to tie up a deal. However, despite initially brokering an agreement, Law left the negotiating table after the player failed to show for his medical.
Yet following the completion of the Under-20 World Cup, the Gunners returned and have agreed on a long-term contract. A fee of around £930,000 will change hands, leading to over £1 million should variable bonuses be reached.
Campbell will hold a press conference in Costa Rica this evening.
