    According to Portuguese newspaper Ojogo Sporting Lisbon rejected our 30M euros bid for Carvalho, they also say Sporting Lisbon will not sell the player unless some club activate Carvalho release clause and his release clause is 45M euros.

    Ive seen this on twitter all morning, and was wondering where a thread was.
    Not long before our man Yousif got onto this ;)

    Dont know how I feel about this one, a position we need to fill yes, but Schneidlerlin is a better option if you ask me.

    i read somewhere that Carvalho is a Gooner and Henry his idol if he push for a move we can get him. but if Sporting keep asking for 45M euros then we should forget it and move to other targets.

    Just seen this on Sky sports transfer section,

    Arsenal have had a €30million (£23.7m) bid for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho rejected, according to O Jogo. Sami Khedira and Morgan Schneiderlin have been linked with moves to Arsenal, but it now appears Carvalho's name could also be on Arsène Wenger's list of targets. The Portugal international has previously been linked with Manchester United and Juventus, with Sporting reportedly wanting the majority of Carvalho's £37m release clause before agreeing to sell.

    The strange bit about the transfer rumour is that apparently the bid involved paying in two instalments. Seems a bit fishy because we have the financial strength to normally pay in one go (unlike certain other clubs).

    They're fairly reliable on Porto stuff. They are based in porto and the main edition is geared toward Porto fans. A bola is best for the Lisbon teams, O Jogo is best for Porto; so it's a bit like when the Liverpool Echo break a liverpool story or Manchester Evening News break a United story.

    Seeing as this is a Sporting Lisboa story, I'd rate this as cautiously reliable.

    some more info on him:

    Seems like the kind of lad who could push for a move to us if we came calling.

    Special young player, I hope we're interested he's an absolute monster. If we pair him with Rambo there won't be a midfield in the PL that we couldn't control. Hope we get him in.

    history of portuguese selling their stars players telling me we have to pay release clause to buy him. 30M euros if very good bid for a player in his age.

    the guy is beast watched him against Usa in world cup he really strong tackler.

    It's a bit annoying when bid information is leaked by a club. And I would suggest that Sporting are responsible for this leak, or the agent.

    Can play centreback as well so potentially fills a few holes in the squad.

    Bloody hell forget Khedira, would absolutely love this lad at the club. Will be on much lower wages so the fee is justified and he is already brilliant, he will grow into an absolute monster here with Rambo. I think he would fit us better than Khedira too.

    Hopefully this is just a starting bid. I reckon if we go back in with €35-40 million they would accept. They know we're tight arses I'm sure.

    Wenger won't like a leak like this. So this is probably dead already.

    I was thinking along the same lines we like our deals to be kept behind closed doors.
