Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Sporting Lisbon’s 22-year-old midfield powerhouse William Carvalho, claim stories in the Portuguese press.
The Portugal international will sign for Arsenal for £24m, and add much needed physicality and energy to the side.
Carvalho had a £37m release clause, but it appears his club side are ready to cash in for a far more reasonable amount. Liverpool and Manchester United have long been merited with an interest in the midfielder, but it seems as though the Gunners have won the race for his signature.
Carvlaho would be Arsenal’s fourth signing of the summer, after deals for Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers were already completed.
