Emirates Stadium side target centre-back and midfield enforcer.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to make significant moves in the January transfer window according to the Telegraph.
Gunners fans have been crying out for their boss to land a defensive midfielder and it appears that Sporting Lisbon enforcer William Carvalho is the man on Wenger’s wish–list with a £20m bid on the cards.
Sporting Lisbon has previously placed a far higher price-tag on the 22 year old Portuguese international but it appears they have reduced their valuation and a January move may well be just the type of addition Wenger needs as he battle for a top four finish.
Carvalho is a far more suitable option to provide some steel in the centre of the park than Frenchman Mathieu Flamini and Spanish veteran Mikel Arteta.
