Sporting Lisbon star has been strongly linked with Premier League
Arsenal have finally been given the green light to sign Sporting Lisbon star William Carvalho after the Portuguese club dropped their asking price by nearly £10million.
The holding-midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all strongly linked with launching a bid for him.
However, nothing formal has ever come out of the interest from the quartet of English clubs due to Lisbon holding out for £3om.
Asking Price Lowered
According to reports in Portugal, Lisbon are willing to lower their asking price though and will listen to offers just over £20m, dropping their price-tag by nearly £10m.
The new price may be deemed feasible by the four English clubs, but it’s believed that Arsenal are in the drivers seat as their hunt for a holding midfielder continues.
Morgan Schneiderlin is another option that Arsenal are looking into, as well as his Southampton team-mate, Victor Wanyama.
