Apparently another long-running Spurs transfer saga is coming nearer to a close with a deal in the offing for a very promising youngster.
Tottenham Hotspur hope to tie up a £8m deal for Seville’s left-winger Diego Capel who is top of their list of transfer targets while they wait to see how the Dimitar Berbatov saga plays out. Capel is that rare commodity in the transfer market, a left-footed, left-sided player whom Tottenham see as ideal to their rebuilding this summer.
Capel, 20, 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 than not but Capel, who has been the subject of interest from Arsenal this season, looks like a better fit for the position. In keeping with their policy of signing young talent that Spurs hope will increase in price, the club want to keep the fee low. (The Independent)
Whilst talk of Spurs left-sided problems were a little melodramatic, it’s definitely true that the signing of Capel will greatly help give balance to Ramos’ side and the much-vaunted Spaniard would be a fantastic addition and give yet more credence to talk of Tottenham moving nearer to the top brass in the Premier League.
Do Spurs fans think that this long awaited signing would greatly improve the service to their frontmen?
