Premier League giants Arsenal will rekindle their interest in Sporting Lisbon starlet William Carvalho, according to ESPN.
Speaking at the club’s Annual General Meeting, Arsene Wenger admitted that he had failed to recruit one of his targets in the summer and that he would attempt to make things right in January.
And ESPN has suggested that Willliam Carvalho was one of the players who was supposed to move to the Emirates, with the Gunners now planning a fresh assault.
While signing a quality centre-back remains a priority in the January window, the Professor is also looking to add another defensive midfielder and the Portugal international appears to be the first name on his hit-list.
Carvalho is unlikely to come on the cheap though seeing as how he has a £37 million release clause in his contract and Sporting are not ready to negotiate the asking price.
