Norwich City are reportedly interested in signing seasoned Portugal international William Carvalho before the summer transfer window closes.
The Lowdown: Carvalho forges strong career
The 29-year-old has enjoyed an impressive career to date, winning Euro 2016 with Portugal and making 68 appearances for his country overall.
Carvalho, who is a defensive midfielder, is currently plying his trade at La Liga side Real Betis, where he featured in 27 league matches last season.

The Latest: Norwich linked with move
According to Sky Sports’ Transfer Centre on Thursday morning [9:13am], Norwich are in talks with Carvalho over a summer move to Carrow Road.
It is noted that the Canaries are keen to strengthen in the heart of their midfield and see the Betis man as one of a number of potential targets.

The Verdict: Sign him up, Norwich
Carvalho could be an excellent signing for Norwich – he was once hailed as ‘extraordinary’ by former Portugal manager Paulo Bento – following a tough start to their Premier League season.
He possesses a wealth of experience at the highest level and is an expert at sitting in front of the back four and providing a shield for the defence – something that Daniel Farke needs desperately after conceding eight goals in two top flight matches.
Carvalho’s international success speaks volumes and he could have a positive impact on those around him, not to mention hopefully still having a number of years left in him at the top level.
