Costa-Rica and Arsenal Striker, Joel Campbell, appears set to be on his way out of the club, after a string of seemingly underwhelming performances.
Having come off the back of a fantastic world cup outing last summer, it was expected that the player would go on to take the English Premier League by storm in Arsenal colours. At the moment, the reverse seems to be the case, as he has been deemed surplus to requirements and would now be offloaded to interested clubs.
Real Sociedad, Galatasaray, Sporting Lisbon as well as a few other clubs across Europe are keen on landing the diminutive winger. Reports had initially stated that talks between Turkish league side Besiktas and the Gunners, over the player’s transfer had reached advanced levels; however, the London club declined to confirm the reports.
However, Real Sociedad coach, David Moyes has recently acted upon Arsenal’s open willingness to trade, and confessed that he is keen to bring the player to Spain. Club President, Jokin Aperribay, also confirmed that official talks between both clubs have held in recent times, and a deal may be concluded as early as this week.
With the departure of Campbell now more imminent than ever, it appears that the rumbling at the Emirates stadium would continue for quite some time. Reports state that coach Wenger is looking to trim down his squad, and one player who could also depart the Emirates stadium as early as this week is 31 year-old midfielder Matthieu Flamini. On the other hand, the gunners may eventually land Alexandre Lacazette, despite reports that he recently committed his future to Lyon.
