Joel Campbell insists he has qualities necessary to thrive in England after spending three seasons away from the club on loan.
The 22-year-old returned to Arsenal this summer and scored in the Emirates Cup against Benfica, before making his Premier League debut at Everton on Saturday.
After impressing for Costa Rica in the World Cup, Campbell feels he is ready to compete for a place in the Gunners' starting line up and prove he can handle the physical demands of the English game.
I'm at a very competitive club with many top-class players in the squad
"I am very happy to be here," Campbell told Arsenal Player. "It has been three years on loan at different clubs but finally now I can settle in here. I want to prove what I am capable of.
"The Premier League is different to the leagues I've played in. It’s a very physical competition where the ball goes very quickly from one box to the other, but at the same time I am part of a team that puts a passing game into practice. Arsenal has great players and the kind of football we play suits my style.
"I'm at a very competitive club with many top-class players in the squad. You have to work really hard even to stay on the bench, let alone to get a spot in the line up.
"Thank God I performed well with my national team at the World Cup - the fans could see what I am capable of. Now it’s time for me to prove my qualities, I have to work hard during training and make the most of any single opportunity the manager may give me."Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
