Arsenal striker Joel Campbell is reportedly close to leaving the club after Real Sociedad made an offer for the forward.

According to the Daily Mail, David Moyes has made a fresh approach for the Costa Rican international and will pay the Gunners around £6m to take the forward to Spain in the summer.

Campbell, who received clearance to play for Arsenal last summer, failed to break into the first-team under Arsene Wenger and was sent on loan in January to Villarreal as part of the £11m deal that brought Gabriel Paulista to north London.

The report claims that Arsenal are willing to part with the striker, who failed to impress during his loan spell, despite him signing a new contract before departing to Spain in January.

The former United manager is keen to bolster his attacking options after getting frustrated due to his team's inability to score goals during the previous campaign and it is claimed that he is hoping to add three new players in that department.

Apart from Campbell, Moyes is also tracking Burnley striker Danny Ings, but the England U21 star is believed to be closing in on a move to Liverpool following the expiry of his contract at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, according to the Independent, Arsenal are set to receive a £3m payout following Barcelona's Champions League win over Juventus on Saturday, 6 June, as per a clause inserted in Thomas Vermaelen's contract.

The Belgian defender moved to the Catalan club last summer in a £15m deal, but the Gunners had inserted a clause in his contract over additional payments depending on Barcelona's successes.

Despite missing the entire season and featuring in just one league game for the Camp Nou outfit, the player received a La Liga and a Champions League winner's medal, which entitles the north London club to get an additional £3m from the Catalans.
