Campbell: Is being tipped for the top by Gourcuff
Joel Campbell has made an impressive start to his time in France, with Lorient coach Christian Gourcuff tipping him for big things.
The youngster has moved to Ligue 1 on a season-long loan from Arsenal, with the Gunners keen for him to experience regular first-team football.
Arsene Wenger moved to secure his services over the summer and was happy for him to take in a spell with Lorient.
The agreement has been beneficial to all concerned so far, with Campbell netting his first goal in Ligue 1 over the weekend.
Gourcuff admits the Costa Rican starlet still has areas of his game to work on, but believes the 19-year-old is a player of considerable potential.
"Campbell has confirmed that he is capable of becoming a top player," he said.
"He has a good attitude and is always willing to listen and learn.
"He is a mix of individual talent and teamwork and knows how to combine the two.
"He does, however, still have things to improve, such as his decision-making."
