William Carvalho: Arsenal failed in deadline day bid for Sporting Lisbon player which included Joel Campbell in part exchange
The midfielder eventually stayed at Sporting
The Gunners were interested in the 22-year-old midfielder all summer, and according to Portuguese news outlet A Bola, failed in the late bid.
In the offer, Arsenal included the Costa Rica striker Campbell, who has failed to settle at the club since returning from his loan spell at Olympiakos this summer. Campbell had also been linked with a move to fellow Portuguese side Benfica.
A Bola have reported that the Gunners put in the late player-plus-cash bid for Carvalho on Monday, but were told that the Portugal international was not for sale.

"There is no way I can say I am going to leave. I am fine at Sporting."
