Arsenal transfer news: Gunners will renew William Carvalho interest in January - reports
Gunners were linked with the 22-year-old all summer
Friday 05 September 2014
Arsenal are being linked with a January move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
The Gunners made multiple bids for the Portuguese during the summer window but could not agree on a fee with Sporting, who were demanding upwards of £30m.
On deadline day they offered a deal that included sending Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell the other way.
The Portuguese club have now offered the 22-year-old a new contract, but he may not sign it as he is believed to prefer a move to the Premier League.
According to Tony Leen of the Irish Examiner, who is said to have links to the midfielder, Arsenal will go back in for Carvalho.
Arsene Wenger added Danny Welbeck on deadline day but left some fans angry at the lack of defensive reinforcements.
The Gunners have just six defenders in their first-team squad.
