Real eyeing William Carvalho
Spanish giants Real Madrid are the latest high-profile side to have joined the race for Sporting Lisbon hotshot William Carvalho.
The Portuguese starlet has become one of the most sought-after players in Europe following some scintillating showings for the Lions this season.
Los Blancos had the player watched in weekend’s fixture against Gil Vicente, which is enough to suggest they are considering a summer move for the 22-year-old.
William Carvalho has been in excellent form this season, having scored 4 goals in 26 league outings.
The talented footballer has so far earned two Portugal caps and is widely tipped to represent the country at the 2014 World Cup.
Lloris linked with summer exit
Daily Mirror is reporting that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could quit White Hart Lane at the end of the season.
The Spurs are desperate to keep hold of their star player, but they are bracing themselves for a summer bid from Paris Saint-Germain.
The French giants are hot on the trail of the France number one and they hope to lure him to Parc des Princes in the summer transfer window.
As a result, Tottenham are keeping close tabs on West Bromwich shot-stopper Ben Foster, who is seen as a good replacement for the Frenchman.
Despite the slow start to his career in England, Lloris has established himself as one of league’s top goalkeepers of late.
Following the 3-3 draw against the Baggies at the weekend, Spurs are priced at 6/5 to achieve a top 6 finish in the Premier League.
Olic set for Wolfsburg stay
Sport Bild has learned that Croatian striker Ivica Olic is nearing a decision to extend his stay with Wolfsburg.
The veteran striker will be out of contract in the summer and he has a lucrative offer from Stoke City on the table.
And while he was widely tipped to leave the Wolves at the end of the current campaign, it appears Olic has changed his mind following team’s impressive results of late.
Namely, Wolfsburg are on the verge of securing Champions League qualification, while they are vying Borussia Dortmund for a place in the DFB Pokal final.
And Olic has now moved to confirm that he could be staying with his current employers after all.
“I feel very comfortable in Wolfsburg. I have to think about my family,” the Croatian told Sport Bild.
The German newspaper has suggested that the striker will be offered a two-year deal at Volkswagen Arena, although he will be forced to accept a major pay cut.
