Joel Campbell says Santi Cazorla’s ambidextrous technique has left him “astonished” - and he hopes to learn as much as he can from him.
The Spain international is equally strong on his right and left foot, with Arsene Wenger even admitting he does not know which one he is better with.
Campbell is a keen admirer of his team-mate, and says he will fight hard to show his own qualities when he gets his chance in the first team.
"He can take corners or free-kicks equally with his right or left foot. That’s some technique!"
“Arsene Wenger has many good options to line up a great attacking force,” the Costa Rica international told Arsenal Player.
“I must say that Santi Cazorla has some exceptional technical skills. He can take corners or free-kicks equally with his right or left foot. That’s some technique! That is a very unusual thing to see and it has left me astonished.
“I presume that every attacking player in the squad will fight with me for a starting place. But I am my biggest competitor - I have to train hard and get better day after day. Being here is a great opportunity for me.
“I feel that I can contribute with speed, goals and dribbling skills. I am a player capable of playing either on the right or left flanks or in the middle.
“It’s down to the manager to decide which of those three positions I am needed most in. I just have to do my best anywhere I play.”
