Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho is eyeing to join Premier League side Arsenal in the winter window, according to reports in Portugal.
The young Portuguese midfielder has already been on Arsenal’s radar for the past several months. However, the Gunners failed to land him in the summer window due his injury problems but are still in search of a holding midfielder.
The 23-year-old who suffered an injury in the late July is ready to start his career in England. With the Gunner keen to fight for the Premier League title this season they would certainly be adding new faces to the squad in the winter window which will open in January.
Carvalho has now returned from his injury and is set to get back to his form. According to A Bola, he has already said that he would like to leave Portugal only for Premier League.
Meanwhile, Tottenham are also keeping tabs on his situation and could give fight to the Gunners.
The reports have revealed that he would cost around €40million, however Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be hopng to conclude the deal for less than €30million.
Carvalho has made more than 70 appearances for the Portuguese side in all campaigns since his move.
