Premier League sides told to cough up £6m for Capel

Sporting CP are willing to sell midfielder Diego Capel if his £6m valuation is met by any potential suitor, the Express understands.

Premier League trio Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were all linked with a move for the 25 year old during the summer, though the Lisbon club managed to stave off all interest.

Reports in Portugal are suggesting that the former Sevilla man is one of the highest earners at the Estadio Jose Alvalade, and that club officials are keen to get him off their books, with the player himself eyeing a move to a higher profile league.

He has had a tough start to this campaign having missed a month through injury, though he opened his goal scoring account for the season with the opener in the 3-2 win over Martimo at the weekend.

Liverpool are thought to have made a £3m bid in the close season, but they will need to double their offer if they are to land him in January.

Capel might have some injury probs
But hes a fantastic player
He has moments of amazing speed and dribbling skills
But doesnt always go on ego
And plays very well as a team man

6m? For that player
Is cheap

I would atleast give 15m for him

But wel
The sporting coach doesnt seem to rly like the guy+ they need money… But i would have loved to see capel another year at sportinf and thwn at arsenal ir tothenham
