Arenal will NOT challenge for Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, reports claim.
The Gunners have frequently been linked with the Portuguese international having extensively scouted him in his younger days.
But it’s London rivals West Ham who are leading the battle for his services with the Daily Star claiming they’re close to agreeing a £37.5million deal.
Asked whether Arsenal would make a last-gasp effort to hijack Slavan Bilic’s swoop, Football London reporter Charles Watts said: “His playing style is not that easy on the eye, so perhaps Wenger does’t feel he would fit in at Arsenal.
“But the fact he may well end up at West Ham tells its own story really. Despite plenty of big clubs looking at him, no-one made a move.”
