Is this the man to provide the screen for Arsenal’s defence?
William Carvalho has long been linked with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Manchester United chasing the Portuguese midfielder. David Moyes was very keen on the Sporting Lisbon but was sacked before he could sign the 23-year-old.
That has left Arsene Wenger as the only man left in the race and there are reports that the Gunners have tabled a £28.5m bid.
The transfer window will open officially in just 11 days time, and the speculation is reaching fever pitch as Premier League clubs get set to splash the cash.
Arsenal are expected to be one of the busiest players in the market as Arsene Wenger sets his sights on finally winning the championship.
The Gunners coach has compiled a list of potential transfers he needs at the Emirates ground, rangingfrom Chelsea’s goalkeeper to Sporting Lisbon’s midfielder, Napoli striker and many more.
