Cape Town - Arsenal face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday for their League Cup clash, a match would could see Costa Rica international Joel Campbell given a chance.
Winger Joel Campbell has struggled to break into the first team this season and Wenger hopes the Costa Rica international will prove he has the quality to play for the Gunners on a regular basis.
"I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons. One is that he has outstanding individual quality, but he is also a team player. He works very hard for the team," Wenger said.
"I'm convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it. He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I'm hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal.
"When you get the chance, you have to be ready. To be ready, you have to prepare," the club's longest serving manager added.
Wenger has confirmed goalkeeper Petr Cech will be involved in
Tuesday's League Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday, after David Ospina was
ruled out with a shoulder injury.
Wenger is known to use the League Cup as a platform to give
youngsters in the squad a taste of first-team action, however, he has opted
against handing 21-year-old Matt Macey his first appearance for the senior
"Ospina is still out too, so Cech will certainly play,"
