Seville, Spain, Jul 20: Sevilla forward Diego Capel will join Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon, with the Spanish club eyeing a move for Mexico international Giovani Dos Santos.
Sevilla coach Marcelino Garcia Toral says “Capel was an important football player for Sevilla but a deal has been reached.”
Capel burst into the first-team during the 2007-08 season but the Spain under-21 forward fell behind starting wingers Jesus Navas and Diego Perotti last season.
Marcelino said the club was evaluating a move for Dos Santos, with Valencia and Udinese reportedly also interested in signing the Tottenham forward.
Dos Santos, who impressed while on loan at Racing Santander last season, made 10 appearances for Spurs since joining from Barcelona in 2008. AP
