Portuguese paper links Arsenal with move for William Carvalho, along with every other club in the world.


According to O Jogo Arsenal are seriously interested in signing William Carvalho along with Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The midfielder, who plays for Sporting Lisbon, has become the third player from Portugal linked with Arsenal in the last 24 hours, the others being Porto’s Jackson Martinez and Benfica’s Rodrigo.

Carvalho comes with his very own release clause, a mere €45m, which seems completely outside of Arsene Wenger’s comfort zone for players who aren’t called Ozil.

Still only 21, Sporting Lisbon aren’t really all that keen on letting him go according to teh report with their president saying

“We are not interested in the output of this player.”

Massive Google translate fail there but you get the idea. They don’t want to sell him, they want stupid money for him if they do and Real Madrid and Barcelona are in for him.

Chances of him ending up at Arsenal = 0%. Chances of him continuing to be linked with Arsenal = 100%

    All of them? surely we’ll get one of them. A striker?
