David Moyes wants Joel Campbell on loan

Published Add your comment

Real Sociedad manager David Moyes is waiting to hear back from Arsene Wenger after inquiring about the possibility of taking Arsenal striker Joel Campbell on loan for the rest of the season.

According to the Sunday People, the Costa Rica international has been identified by the Manchester United reject as the man to add more firepower to his attacking ranks at the Anoeta Stadium.

After scoring just 11 goals in 11 games since Moyes arrived in San Sebastian in November, the former Red Devils boss knows that he needs to strengthen that area of his squad if Sociedad are to stave off the threat of relegation.

They currently occupy 12th place in La Liga but are just three points clear of the drop zone, so Campbell's prospective arrival will give the club fresh confidence of retaining their top-flight status in Spain this season.

The 22-year-old has hardly featured for the Gunners this term despite returning to north London off the back of an impressive showing at the World Cup in Brazil last summer, and it's understood that Campbell is open to the idea of leaving the Emirates Stadium on another temporary deal until the end of 2014/15.

Sociedad have also been linked with moves for a number of other Premier League strikers thanks to Moyes' obvious links back in England, with Burnley's Danny Ings and Tottenham's Roberto Soldado also identified as possible options for the Scot before the transfer window closes on February 3.

However, Campbell would probably be the pick of the bunch, and so the 51-year-old will push Wenger for an answer over the next few days.
