Stoke are suffering from a few niggles ahead of Saturday’s crucial home clash against Brighton and manager Paul Lambert may have to delve into the youth ranks to make up a full seven-man bench.
Campbell, son of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, has been impressing for the Under-23’s this season and he bagged a brace in the recent 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough at St George’s Park.
Reports are claiming he could be handed a spot on the bench for the contest with the Seagulls and the 18-year-old admits it would be fantastic to get a chance to show what he can do at senior level.
“I just want to keep scoring goals and learning from others,” Campbell said. “I want to improve all the areas of my game and then hopefully, if I continue to score and play well, I might get a chance by the end of the season to make the first-team squad.”
