Campbell tallied an assist off the bench in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Watford.

Coming on in the 79th minute for Alexis Sanchez, Campbell made the most of his cameo appearance by finding Olivier Giroud for a good chance and then linking up with Theo Walcott for the fourth and final goal in the 90th minute. Campbell doesn't really have a place to play barring injury, but has shown himself to be of Premier League caliber throughout the season and will continue to be called upon off the bench with regularity.

Fraser Forster has quickly reminded everyone that he's one of the best keepers in the Premier League, as he's posted five clean sheets in five starts since returning from his long-term knee injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Campbell took three shots (one on target) and tallied an assist in Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

The pacey winger was excellent once again for the Gunners. While he sometimes loses his shape—drifting toward the center of the park, which creates a logjam of both defenders and loses their offensive spacing—when he bombs up the right side, he's strong, direct and excellent on the ball. He played a perfect pass to Aaron Ramsey, who made no mistakes with the finish for their first goal of the day. He has three goals and three assists in 19 matches across all competitions. While he'll likely lose his starting spot upon the return of Alexis Sanchez, his form should see him playing ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Campbell tallied an assist off three key passes, two dribbles and two crosses in the crucial 3-0 win over Olympiacos in the final round of the Champions League group stage.

Incredible effort and personal skills between three defenders before making a killer pass to Olivier Giroud for the second goal. He was one of the best on the field and was sent with wild applauds by the home crowd who knows him from his stint with Olympiacos. The Costa Rican has found himself with some regular playing time, due to multiple starters sidelined with injuries, and is intending to show everything he's got in his arsenal. He would be a very viable fantasy option Sunday when facing one of the worst defenses in the league and last-placed Aston Villa.

Campbell scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Sunderland.

The 23-year-old Costa Rican winger might not have the pedigree of some of his teammates, but due to a bevy of injuries, he's found himself an important fixture in the squad. Making his third start of the Premier League season and his fifth straight appearance, Campbell found the back of the net after latching onto the end of a Mesut Ozil ball for the first goal of the match. The goal was his second in Premier League play and has shown himself to be a valuable piece of the Gunners as they prepare to navigate through the busy holiday fixture season.

Campbell scored in the 73rd minute of Arsenal's 3-0 victory at Swansea City on Sunday.

Campbell was handed a rare start in light of countless injuries to Arsenal's right-sided attacking options, but took full advantage of his newfound opportunity. Along with leading Arsenal with four total shot attempts, Campbell put in a good shift defensively, and sealed the Gunners' win by scoring their third goal. That performance should result in Campbell seeing more minutes than usual in the coming weeks, which obviously helps his immediate fantasy stock.

Campbell is starting Saturday against Swansea City.

Campbell will get the rare Premier League start, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Theo Walcott (calf) all out, as manager Arsene Wenger goes for Campbell's youth over the veteran Mathieu Flamini. Campbell has plenty of pace, though his fantasy upside is dwarfed by some of his teammates.

Arsenal are prepared to let Campbell leave permanently this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Campbell spent some time at Villarreal last season where he made 22 appearances and scored once. Benfica, Fenerbache, and Real Sociedad are said to be interested.

Campbell is expected to be sent on loan to Villarreal, who will be sending centerback Gabril Paulista to Arsenal, ESPN FC reports.

Manager Arsene Wenger said earlier this month that Campbell would not be sent on loan after Yaya Sanogo was loaned to Crystal Palace, but with Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck ahead of him on the depth chart, Campbell will now get an opportunity for more first-team football.
