West Ham United are reported to be close to completing the transfer of Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho.
It is being reported that the Premier League club will fork out a fee of £30m for the twenty-five year old.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has already seen one offer for the Portugal international turned down by Sporting, but he is believed to be closer to an agreement thanks to the new bid.
Carvalho was a member of the Portuguese squad that won Euro 2016 last year and has netted once in thirty-seven international outings for his country.
Bilic has already added several new faces to the West Ham squad, but the Croatian is keen to add further new signings after the 4-0 defeat against Manchester United at the weekend.
Carvalho has previously been linked with moves to several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.
