Sporting Lisbon are offering midfielder Willian Carvalho to clubs in hope of receiving bid.
- Sporting want to sell Carvalho for £26m
- Arsenal, Manchester City and West Brom are reportedly interested
- Arsenal have been linked for years
This could be finally be the year that William Carvalho leaves Sporting Lisbon. The central midfielder has been touted as a big talent for several years, but has yet to make the big move despite numerous reports suggesting one was imminent.
Now according to Record, Sporting Lisbon are actively inviting offers by offering him around for £26m. They claim that Arsenal, Manchester City and West Brom are his most likely destinations.
Arsenal have been constantly linked with Carvalho since 2013, but Sporting’s asking price, which was at the time closer to £40m, was a constant obstacle in any potential deal.
While Arsenal have the financial capability to do the deal now, they have a number of midfield options already, including Granit Xhaka. There’s not much that Carvalho offers that Xhaka already doesn’t, however.
