Long time West Ham target William Carvalho is reportedly for sale this summer, but it doesn’t seem like West Ham fans are overly confident of a deal.
According to reports in Portugal, Sporting CP are ready to sell William Carvalho for €40m this summer, along with goalkeeper Rui Patricio for a further €15m.
West Ham are known to be long time admirers of Carvalho, who impressed for Portugal at the European Championships in 2016.
The towering defensive midfielder and his goalkeeper are both set to be in the shop window this summer, and West Ham could certainly benefit from investing heavily in the spine of their team.
Adrian and Joe Hart have both shown why they can’t be trusted this season, and the Hammers are seriously short of quality options in midfield too.
Carvalho and Patricio would drastically improve the Hammers, but fans aren’t particularly confident of a deal given their recent transfer business.
Fans have grown tired of their owners taking the cheapest possible option in the transfer market, and let’s just say they can’t see the owners spending €55m (£48m) on two top class players.

Good. Now lets wait for a West Ham offer around €12…
