A certain Spanish left winger has made it known that he wants to ‘grow as a footballer,’ and what do you know…Spurs are the name of the club he’s currently being linked with! A Spanish footballer being linked with Juande Ramos at the North London club? Talk about a shocker!
The Telegraph is reporting today that Ramos and Co. have launched an aggressive £12.5m bid to lure Sevilla winger Diego Capel away from his La Liga club to the city of overcast skies and frequent rain. I’m sure he’s dying to get here!
“For sure everybody wants to grow as a footballer, I’m at a great club, but you always have better objectives” he told Diario de Sevilla:
“I know there is interest from Tottenham but the club trust me and I owe them for this confidence.
“Tottenham manager Juande Ramos didn’t speak to me, he did with my agent I presume, yes. My representatives deal with this.
“I think Sevilla’s president has all the right in the world to turn down an offer. Right now I belong to Sevilla, I’m under contract here and that needs to be respected.
“For sure my intention is to keep developing at Sevilla. If they value my work I’ll stay here or if they value me more elsewhere, you never know what can happen.” (Telegraph)
Capel broke into the Sevilla starting XI last season, and could potentially be a great fit at Tottenham in Ramos’ current formation. The big question remaining is, where will the funds for £12.5m bid will come from? With Ramos still chasing transfer targets, it has now left the door open that either Berbatov or Keane will most likely move this summer (shock). From the looks of things, that’s about the only way Spurs would be able to finance this type of deal.
Would Spurs supporters be willing to move Keane or Berbatov to secure Capel? Do you think he could make an instant impact at the club?
