Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are confident after the Daily Star explained how the Gunners are finalising a deal to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
Manchester United also want the 22-year-old and it appears Arsene Wenger is keen to snap him up as soon as the transfer window re-opens tomorrow.
It is believed the French tactician is preparing a deal in the region of £25.5 million for the Portuguese youngster.
This rumour was revealed hours after Wenger hinted that he may look to strengthen his side in the New Year.
He said: “There is a need there [to buy], but the right opportunity has to come up.
“To buy [just for the sake] to buy is not what we want to do, but if the right opportunity comes up, we will do it.
“If you look at the number of games some players played and the injuries we have with [Jack] Wilshere, [Aaron] Ramsey and [Mikel] Arteta, we’re a bit short at the moment in midfield.”
