Will This 25 Year Old Be Arsenal’s Second Summer Signing?


Arsenal have entered the race for Sporting Lisbon’s Diego Capel. The winger has also been linked with Liverpool and Spurs as he seeks a move away from Portugal.

Capel has represented Spain twice and is known as a tricky winger. Liverpool had a £3 million offer rejected for the attacker earlier in the summer and are yet to come back with a second bid.

The Gunners are happy to meet the clubs £6 million valuation as they look to swoop in and steal him away from the Reds. Capel made his name at Sevilla before moving to Portugal where he has endured a difficult spell.

He only played 25 times for the Portuguese outfit last year and had to be content with a place on the bench in Lisbon’s opening game of the season so a move for the player should be met with caution.

Capel is only likely to be a squad player and will not be a big improvement on the current players in the squad. Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all better options than Capel but the transfer would give Wenger more options as he looks to strengthen the club’s squad depth.
