Arsenal invited to buy Sporting’s William Carvalho for €30m [Record]
Sporting Lisbon now seem desperate to try to offload William Carvalho before the transfer window slams shut in England on August 31st.
For months on end the likes of Man United (no longer interested) and Arsenal are have reportedly stalking the 21-year-old defensive midfielder, but until now no party has managed to land the Iberian star.
Now, according to Portuguese paper Record, Sporting are willing to accept a €30 million bid for William.
Noticeably, earlier in the summer Sporting had seemed resolute to only accept bids of around €45 million for the player (as is the price of his release clause), while recent days have seen O Jogo say that the Gunners could land the player for €30-35 million provided they loan the Portuguese club a player as part of the package.
Whether Arsenal will fork out €30 million remains unknown.
