Swansea City have joined the interest in Sporting Lisbon midfielder Diego Capel.

Cash-strapped Sporting are expected to sell Capel in the summer and he has been linked with Liverpool this week.

TMW says Swansea are also interested in the Spain international, though his asking price could prove a stumbling block.

Sporting will seek big money as former club Sevilla will be due 20 per cent of any sell-on fee.
