Gunners weigh up new midfielder offer.
Read more Arsenal transfer news.
Arsenal are weighing up a £20 million bid for defensive midfielder William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon, report the Mail, as Arsene Wenger seriously considers bolstering his central midfield options before the transfer window closes on Monday evening.
Wenger has repeatedly refused to rule out a move for a defensively minded central midfielder this summer, but it is yet to materialised, despite captain Mikel Arteta picking up an injury.
Carvalho, however, has been a consistent link and is rated as one of the most exciting and industrious young midfielders in Europe – making him a potentially mouth-watering prospect for Gunners fans, if their interest in the player comes to fruition.
