Real Sociedad begin talks for Arsenal’s Campbell

Former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes has made his move for out of favour Arsenal striker Joel Campbell, with Real Sociedad in talks to bring the striker to Spain, according to Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo.

Campbell was hugely impressive at the World Cup last year that saw his Costa Rica side make a shock impact on the tournament – even advancing from the group which saw England finish bottom with just a single point.

The forward returned to the Emirates following a season long loan at Olympiakos last term but has failed to gain a first team spot in Arsene Wenger’s side.

Frustrations for Campbell are well known and it appears David Moyes has made his move as he tries to strengthen his front line and aid the revival of the struggling club he took over towards the end of 2014.

However it is far from clear whether or not Wenger wishes to let the Costa Rican leave the Emirates – he played the full 90 minutes of their FA Cup win over Hull at the weekend and is often included in match day squads.

This coupled with the fact Lukas Podolski has now left the club could mean it will be a hard sale for Sociedad to negotiate.

The Spanish side are hoping amicable relations between the two parties following the transfer of Carlos Vela in the past could count in their favour over any possible negotiations.
