West Bromwich Albion are the latest Premier League club to show interest in the Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
Talented midfielder played an important role in Portugal’s maiden win at the European Championship in France this summer, while he has already established himself as a key man for his club.
Previously linked with Arsenal, the 24-year-old but the latest reports confirm that the Baggies joined the race for Carvalho as West Brom manager Tony Pulis is looking to close the relatively quiet transfer window with a bang.
Portugal media outlet Record reports that the Premier League side have had the initial proposal worth €25 million rejected by Sporting Lisbon who are not in a rush to sell their prized asset.
Leicester City, Everton and Southampton are all thought to be keeping tabs on the holding midfielder who joined Sporting from Cercle Brugge in 2013.
Angola-born Portugal international has made 27 Primeira Liga appearances for his club last season, while he also scored 2 goals in the process.
