Santi Cazorla recommends Campbell to Villarreal, and vice versa

Reports say we're hoping Santi will persuade Campbell to join us rather than Real Sociedad

This morning's EPM brings a report from well-connected Vila-real journalist Sr. Lizarraga identifying Campbell as our "#1 choice in the January market" and noting Sr. Roig Negueroles has received very favorable reports from Santi Cazorla about him.

David Moyes also wants Campbell at Real Sociedad; remember Villarreal went head-to-head with them for Sergio Canales, but had the problem that Valencia (who owned him) didn't want him to go to Villarreal.  Based on yesterday's evidence, I'd say Canales would have been better off with us.

Campbell can play as a second striker, but obviously the thought is he would play in his preferred right-wing position, would offer us speed on that side comparable to Cheryshev's on the left.
