Portuguese newspaper A Bola understands that Marseille are readying summer bid for Sporting Lisbon winger Diego Capel.
The French giants were hoping to sign the Spaniard in the January transfer window, but after their bid was rejected they instead recruited Modou Sougou.
Nevertheless, considering that star forward Andre Ayew is widely tipped to leave Stade Velodrome in the summer, OM are set to return for the talented winger.
Diego Capel has a deal until June 2016 at Estadio Jose Alvalade and a release clause of €30 million, but he is likely to be available for lot less due to club’s serious financial problems.
The 25-year-old was paid just €3.5 million when he arrived from Sevilla in the summer of 2011, so the Lions should still be able to make a nice profit.
Diego Capel has been in fine form ever since he joined the club from los Rojiblancos, scoring 6 goals in 47 Primeira Liga appearances.
