Spanish side Real Betis are ready to ask Arsenal about the availability of four players when they come to extend Joel Campbell’s loan stint at the club.
Betis are keen to extend Campbell’s deal into the 2013/14 campaign, while they are also interested in a more formal partnership agreement with the Gunners.
And when the time comes to sit around the table with Arsenal, Betis will, according to Fichajes, use the opportunity to touch base over four other Gunners’ players.
The Spanish side are keen on defender Johan Djourou, midfielders Francis Coquelin and Emmanuel Frimpong, and striker Marouane Chamakh.
It remains to be seen which of the four, if any, Arsenal will be prepared to make available to Betis.
Pepe Mel’s men currently sit seventh in La Liga and are not out of the running for a top four Champions League spot yet.
More realistic however may be booking a place in next season’s Europa League.
