Tottenham Hotspur could find themselves in a unique position if they make a move for William Carvalho.
The Portugal international, who has earned 45 caps for his country, is a free agent this summer due to some extraordinary circumstances at Sporting Lisbon.
The midfielder is one of a handful of first-team players who requested for their contracts to be terminated due to May’s attack on the squad from 50 masked fans.
Due to the fact that he will be available for nothing, plenty of clubs are expected to register an interest.

Last season, the 26-year-old made 38 appearances in all competitions, contributing one goal and two assists.
Carvalho predominantly plays as a defensive midfielder, but he is also capable of pulling the strings from the middle of the park, as well as slotting into the back line if needs be.
Tottenham could lose Mousa Dembele this season as he is yet to sign a new contract, which means that having a player of Carvalho’s quality could be helpful.
We asked you if it was worth Spurs making a move, and the majority think that it would be a good idea.
