The 21-year-old Costa Rican is on loan at the Greek club and played a starring role in Manchester United's defeat on Tuesday night.
"As soon as Arsenal came, I wanted to join them and I believe I am ready to play for Arsenal next season," Campbell revealed. "I have the capacity to play there and I am only waiting for the opportunity. With hard work I can get there."
Arsène Wenger now has a decision on his hands. Campbell, a Costa Rica international, hopes to line up to face England at the World Cup on 24 June. If he has not already proved his worth to Wenger by the time the referee blows his whistle in Belo Horizonte, there is no better place to do so than against the country in which he wishes to stay.
Campbell joined Arsenal in 2011 without a work permit. His previous loans, in France with Lorient, Spain with Real Betis, and Greece with Olympiakos, have gained him invaluable experience in some of the world's top leagues.
This season he has taken to the Champions League remarkably well, but it is now up to Wenger to decide if he is ready to return and end Arsenal's search for a striker.
