Arsenal transfer news: Wenger makes fresh enquiry for William Carvalho

Arsene Wenger has made a fresh enquiry for Sporting Lisbon star William Carvalho as Arsenal look to sign a top quality defensive midfielder this summer. The Gunners boss is keen to bring the Portugal international to the Emirates, and has already had a £24m bid turned down. Carvalho has also been a long-term target for Premier League rivals Manchester United, but - like Arsenal - they have been reluctant to meet the £35m buyout clause in the player's contract.
