If Arsene Wenger is looking for more firepower, he might try looking at one of his on-loan strikers.

As Arsenal continue to struggle in the Premier League (the Gunners are now 10th and sit behind Stoke City, West Ham and Swansea), Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell scored a stunner of a long-range goal this weekend in La Liga for Real Betis.

If that name sounds familiar for Gooners, it should. Campbell is an Arsenal player who has been loaned out to Betis for the season (via Arsenal.com). Now 20 years old, Campbell has earned 16 senior caps for Costa Rica, scoring seven times.

His goal this weekend was his second in league play this season for Betis. And it was a beauty.

The goal appears in the video clip above. It's our Set Piece Goal of the Weekend. Enjoy.

Here's the setting. In the 76th minute, Real Betis were tied 2-2 with hosts Deportivo La Coruña. Campbell took possession of the ball on the right wing, cut in toward the box and curled a gorgeous left-footed shot into the corner of the net at the far post.

Campbell literally could not have placed the shot any better. The goalkeeper had no chance.

It turned out to be the match-winner, too. Betis held onto the 3-2 lead and moved up to fourth place and the Champions League spots with the victory (via Associated Press).

All in all, not a bad day at all for the youngster. In fact, it's hard to imagine many of Arsenal's current attackers producing something so brilliant.

But will Wenger take notice?
