Arsenal target William Carvalho coy over Sporting Lisbon future

Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho remained coy as to whether he will leave the club amid links with Arsenal.

There has been regular speculation throughout the summer suggesting Arsenal are keen to sign Carvalho, and sources have told ESPN FC that the Portugal international is keen on a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to the Portuguese press after Sporting's 1-1 draw with Benfica on 1-1, he said he was happy in Lisbon but did not rule out a transfer.

"I am under contract with Sporting and I'm a Sporting player," he said, according to A Bola. "There is no way I can say I am going to leave. I am fine at Sporting."

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said on Friday that he would be "actively involved" in the transfer market on deadline day but told reporters after Sunday's 1-1 draw with Leicester that he could not guarantee anyone would be brought in.

"I don't want to promise you what I am not sure to hold," he said. "I've worked long enough in England to know I don't like to promise what I'm not 100 per cent sure of as it doesn't depend on me."
