The 22-year-old has earned himself international recognition this season as he continues to impress in the middle of the park for Sporting, and the club are preparing themselves for a flurry of activity surrounding the youngster this summer.
Carvalho has recently hinted that a move to the Premier League champions could be of great interest to him, whilst Spanish giants Real Madrid had also been counted as a possible option.
However, it is now Juventus who are said to be leading the charge for his services as they are reportedly gearing up for the potential loss of Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
