Arsenal have continued to be linked with Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.

Carvalho has become a familiar name to Gooners, having been “close to completing” a move to the Emirates on several occasions. However, nothing has materialized all these years but reports in Portugal haven’t stopped linking him with us.

And now, Portuguese newspaper A Bola via The Daily Cannon are claiming Arsenal could make a move for the midfielder this summer.

The report claims, although Sporting are yet to receive an official bid for Carvalho, they have slashed his price tag to just £26.7m in order to encourage buyers.

Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Newcastle United and West Brom have all been linked with the midfielder but it is the Baggies who are reportedly showing the most concrete interest at the moment.

Arsenal are being linked with a new centre midfielder, however the club is looking out for a Box to Box midfielder to replace Cazorla rather than a holding midfielder like Carvalho.

It does seem like the Portuguese club are looking to sell the midfielder abroad and that’s the reason they have been linking him with a move to the Premier League.

I doubt Arsenal are actually serious about signing him at the moment especially when Coquelin, Xhaka and Elneny are going nowhere.
