Fenerbahçe have been closely linked with the Costa Rica international after the Milliyet newspaper claimed he had reached an agreement-in-principle with the club.

The Yellow Canaries are reported to be interested in Manchester United star Nani as well as Bursaspor striker Fernandao.

Campbell received a number of offers in the summer but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wanted Campbell to stay at the North London based club before eventually letting him go on a temporary move.

The 22-year-old was loaned out to Villarreal and is now expected to join Real Soceidad over the summer transfer window.

Fenerbahçe finished the last season in second place and booked a place in the Champions League playoff stages.
