Twitter Reacts As Arsenal Bizarrely Decide To Loan Out Joel Campbell

In quintessential Arsene Wenger style, with Arsenal struggling for goals, he’s decided to loan out young striker Joel Campbell to Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal fans had plenty to say on Twitter as the club announced the deal.

Theo Walcott was the subject of some (probably justified) criticism from the Gunners’ fanbase.

Arsene Wenger, not exactly popular with supporters at the moment, also took the brunt of Twitter’s rage.

The club broke the news on their official account today, much to the chagrin of the fans.

“The 24-year-old scored four times in 30 first-team appearances last year, having joined the club in 2011 and enjoying previous loan spells at Lorient, Real Betis, Olympiacos and Villarreal.”

It’s the most recent in a long line of vexing decisions from the club this transfer window. From somehow botching the seemingly inevitable move of Jamie Vardy to dragging their heels over a few million euro in the negotiations for Shkodran Mustafi.

Wenger now faces a simple task. Sign a striker or come next May, his erratic tenure will surely be over. Without a proven goalscorer, they might finally miss out on the Champions League qualification that his kept him in the hot-seat this long.
