Tottenham Hotspur hope to tie up an Ã‚Â£8m deal for Sevilla’s 20 year old, Spanish left-winger Diego Capel. Should he sign, Capel will be Spurs third major signing following the arrival of 22 year old Croatian Luka Modric and 19 year old Mexican Giovani Dos Santos.
Capel played under Tottenham manager Juande Ramos and established himself over the course of the Spanish manager’s last season at the club. Tottenham’s left side was a problem last term with Steed Malbranque getting the job more often.
Capel has been the subject of interest from Arsenal but Tottenham will hope that the completion of Arsenal’s deal for Samir Nasri, will end their rivalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s interest in Capel. Nasri announced yesterday that he would be joining Arsenal in a four-year deal for a fee worth around Ã‚Â£15m.
