William Carvalho: Linked with a move to the Premier League

William Carvalho: Linked with a move to the Premier League

The Portuguese midfielder is understood to have attracted a lot of interest following a series of impressive performances last season.

Manchester United have previously been linked with a move, while last week there was speculation that Arsenal had lodged a bid in the region of £24million.

De Carvalho has denied receiving any proposals for the 22-year-old, but has confirmed that offers have been rejected for a couple of the club's other players.

"There were proposals for Rojo and Slimani, but the values are below what Sporting legitimately want for the players," he said. "For William, there are no proposals."

Southampton are rumoured to be interested in Argentina left-back Marcos Rojo and there have been reports of a £12million bid. 

Striker Islam Slimani, meanwhile, is thought to be on the radar of several clubs around Europe after catching the eye during Algeria’s World Cup campaign.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
