Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho remains keen on a move to West Ham, despite his proposed summer switch collapsing, reports The Mirror.
It was thought that both his current club and his prospectors were unable to reach an agreement with regards to a suitable fee in the summer for the transfer of the highly rated 25-year-old, however new information has since come to light after the transfer window closed at the end of August.
Sporting director Nuno Saraiva launched a viscious attack on West Ham co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, claiming the pair never made a move for the Portugal international, labelling them as ‘liars’ and ‘parasites’. The club’s President Bruno de Carvalho also went on to name the duo as the ‘dildo brothers’ due to their ties with the sex industry.
Gold and Sullivan have since rebuked such claims and are thought to be suing both parties over their comments.
Despite all the controversy, Carvalho is understood to remain keen on moving to the London Stadium this winter and remains confident of securing a move away from the Liga NOS side.
Carvalho still has three years left on his contract in Portugal, with his current deal running until late 2020.
