Arsenal are interested in Sporting Lisbon winger Diego Capel.

Liverpool are being linked with a £7 million move for the Spain international, who is keen to leave Lisbon before the summer market shuts.

Futbol Mercato says Arsenal have joined the interest as manager Arsene Wenger sees Capel as a readymade replacement for Gervinho, now with AS Roma.

Wenger is yet to make a cash signing for the Gunners this summer.
