Arsenal striker Joel Campbell has urged his club to respond to interest from Real Sociedad after the 22-year-old indicated he would be interested in the prospect of joining David Moyes' team.

Campbell has become a peripheral figure at The Emirates Stadium and despite being promised improved first team opportunities after earning a work permit and following the World Cup, he failed to make a single Premier League start last term

The Costa Rica international spent the second half of the campaign at Villarreal, his fourth loan spell away from Arsenal in as many seasons and this term is not expected to see Campbell's opportunities improve.

Real Sociedad are the latest club to be linked with ending Campbell's nightmare spell at Arsenal but while the player has indicated he would be interested in the move, his parent club will decide his future.

"For one as a player it is a compliment that a team like La Real want me, but I do not touch upon these matters," he told Radio Marca Donostia.

"It is a matter for Arsenal, who are the owners of my permit, and we will see what happens."

Seven players have already left Arsenal this summer following confirmation of the Premier League release list.

Abou Diaby and Ryo Miyaichi are among the players on the list and they could be joined out of the north London exit door by Lukas Podolski, who is a primary target for Turkish giants Galatasaray.

Tomas Rosicky has also spoken of his discontent with life with the Gunners having been overlooked since reportedly extending his contract and there could yet be a mass exodus from the club this summer.
