How Joel Campbell's next potential move could prevent Roberto Soldado from leaving Spurs

Arsenal striker Joel Campbell could prevent struggling Roberto Soldado from leaving Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal striker Joel Campbell’s movements have just become extra important as Super Deporte reports David Moyes is keen on a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado.

The Daily Mail reported overnight that Moyes is reportedly also keen on signing Campbell from the Gunners and if he completes that transfer, Soldado could find himself confined to White Hart Lane for the rest of the season.

It’s understandable why Soldado could be keen on a return to Spain after struggling to make an impact at Spurs following his move from Valencia.

However, he remains a popular figure with Tottenham fans because despite his lack of goals, he can never be faulted in terms of his work rate.

He showed against Everton earlier this season that he does have it in him to change big games for the club, but his poor consistency means it’s no surprise Sociedad are linked as the latest side to be looking at him.

Moyes could well do deals for both players but unlike Arsenal, Spurs would arguably need a replacement signed up before they allowed the first team star to move on.

Arsenal can cope much more easily if Campbell was moved out of the exit door quickly and that arguably makes Moyes more likely to go after the Costa Rican first as opposed to the Spaniard.

Campbell is also at a club where there are more players ahead of him in the pecking order; Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez, whereas Soldado is arguably the best option when Harry Kane isn’t available.

If Soldado and Tottenham are still partners at the end of the current transfer window, the player has to continue trying his hardest to turn his form around while the club have to take the risk of continuing to give him chances.
