Agent reveals Arsenal, Spurs want Newcastle's Capoue

The agent of Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue has confirmed the interest of Arsenal and Tottenham.

Capoue's representative claims a move could still happen later in the year, but concedes that a hefty price tag may force a player who is under contract until 2015 to be patient.

"At lot of English clubs wanted to hire him, most notably Arsenal, Tottenham and Fulham," Mino Raiola told L'Equipe.

"Paris St Germain wanted him too, but that may be for the summer. We will see what happens in the future.

"I know Toulouse chairman Olivier Sadran was not keen to sell during the winter window.

"The fee demanded was a barrier on each occasion, but we held some polite talks."
