Arsenal has fixed their sights on £6m rated Diego Capel with the clock ticking until the transfer window closes.
The 25-year-old winger has been on Liverpool's radar this summer and saw a £3m bid for him snubbed by Sporting Lisbon.
The Portuguese outfit would only consider selling should a suitor meet their £6m valuation.
Reports in Portugal ascertain that Capel is ready to leave Sporting and would relish playing at a higher level.
According to O Jogo, Arsenal is considering a move for him as it is believed he will complement their style of play.
They have it that Arsenal could make a formal enquiry for his services within the coming days.
Marseille have also been tracking Capel, and have made him a back-up option should they be unsuccessful in clawing away Arsenal and Newcastle target Florian Thuavin from Lille.
Capel has earned two caps for Spain at senior level.
He is currently contracted with Sporting until 2016.
