Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal have been handed a major transfer boost as Chelsea target William Carvalho has admitted his love for Premier league rivals Arsenal.
The Sporting Lisbon defensive midfielder, could leave for around £25million in the January transfer window
Although he has a release clause of £35m that the Gunners could activate if Sporting are reluctant to sell, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Blues have been monitoring Carvalho for quite some time and are said to be interested in the Portuguese midfielder after the club missed out on summer target Paul Pogba.
It is claimed that Jose Mourinho is interested in a powerful central midfielder after seeing his side dominated in the midfield by more physical teams.
The Portuguese midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent years. A leg injury saw the north London club cool their interest in the Sporting Lisbon midfielder, but Arsene Wenger could return for the player after his recent comments.
