The Gunners have had Campbell out on numerous loan deals but this new injury could see his chances of moving again scuppered.

“We will see what the doctors say, but it is a pretty big tear and I will have to undergo an operation.

“It is complicated when you get injured like this, it keeps you out of competitions and from representing your country,'' Campbell explained.
