David Moyes makes £6m bid for Arsenal forward Joel Campbell
FOOTBALL By Mirror | July 16th 2015
David Moyes has made a £6million bid to sign Arsenal forward Joel Campbell.
Real Sociedad boss Moyes is hopeful of beating off competition from Portuguese giants Benfica to get the 23-year-old.
Costa Rica star Campbell joined Villarreal on loan last January as part of Arsenal’s deal for defender Gabriel Paulista.
He has also had full seasons on loan at Lorient in France, Spain's Real Betis and Olympiacos of Greece during his Gunners career.
Mirror Sport understands Campbell – who is not on the club's current pre-season trip to Asia - has made it clear he wants to leave Arsenal as he fears he will not get regular football at the Emirates.
Moyes strengthened his defence yesterday, signing Mexican Diego Reyes.
