Campbell spent the second half of last season on loan at Villarreal in a deal which brought Gabriel to north London, but he failed to deliver in La Liga.
However, Moyes is preparing to give him a second chance in Spain’s top division which could potentially see Campbell join his third La Liga side.

During the complications surrounding his work permit, Campbell spent a season on loan at Real Betis where he made a real impression on the home supporters.

Offloading some strikers could be vital if Arsene Wenger is looking to add in that department this summer and reports suggest Campbell may be one of a few to make room.
The Mirror suggests that the Costa Rican forward, along with Lukas Podolski and Yaya Sanogo who could be sold to free up the finances need to make a move for Jackson Martinez.
Campbell had a decent World Cup, but his time during the first part of the season was slightly bizarre and it remains clear that Wenger doesn’t trust him.
