Blues give up on Khedira, submit offer for Carvalho.
Read more Chelsea transfer rumours.
Chelsea have reportedly made a £30m bid for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho after giving up on Real Madrid star Sami Khedira, according to CaughtOffside.
The Blues have been chasing a defensive midfield player for much of this summer’s transfer window, with Khedira believed to be among their main targets, though the club have now given up on signing the German World Cup winner as he looks set to join Arsenal in a £12m move.
Carvalho has also been linked with the Gunners in recent months, but it now looks as though these two transfer sagas will be resolved in the next few days.
It remains to be seen if £30m will be enough to land the 22-year-old Portuguese star, who was the subject of a failed £20m bid from Arsenal earlier this summer.
