Arsenal are desperate to sign €20m-rated Portugal international

William Carvalho is a target for the London giants. The Real Betis midfielder appears to be the right alternative for the Spanish manager who is seeking for a new midfielder to cover for Thomas Partey in the second half of the season.

Since his eye-catching transfer to Real Betis in 2018, the Portugal international has never quite lived up to the hype. However, under Manuel Pellegrini’s guidance, Carvalho has established himself as a key player of the team.


Indeed, William has appeared in seven La Liga games thus far, demonstrating his importance in Manuel Pellegrini’s rotation approach. The 29-year-old midfielder is presently competing with Guido Rodriguez in the Real Betis midfield, assisting the former Manchester City coach in reorganizing his squad and keeping his players fresh amidst the grueling match schedule.

The Gunners are hoping to sign the Portuguese midfielder for a similar position during the forthcoming winter transfer window.

Arsenal’s midfield unit is clearly lacking in quality depth, especially with Granit Xhaka’s long-term absence, while Mohamed Elneny and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have been on the margins recently.

Arsenal’s star footballer Thomas Partey has not enjoyed a successful spell at Arsenal either, although the signs of a turnaround have been appearing lately. As a result, the Gunners are now looking for midfield reinforcements in winter.
