West Ham United are close to a deal to sign William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon, with trusted fan website Claret and Hugh stating that personal terms are agreed with the midfielder and the Hammers will make a second offer worth €30 million (£27.2 million).

While, West Ham's current bid stands at just over £27m, the report claims that Sporting CP are holding out for as much as £36.1m, but the clubs may meet in the middle over a deal which would surpass the Irons' record signing.

"What a signing this could be for West Ham United, powerhouse of a centre midfielder", Hutchinson said.

The Portuguese global has been with Lisbon-based club for his whole career - save for a few loan spells at Fátima (Portuguese third division) and Cercle Brugge (Belgian second division) - starting at the junior level in 2005 before making the step up to the senior club in 2011.

The Portugal worldwide is said to have been one of Arsenal's top targets this summer, while Italian champions Juventus have also been linked with the player.

In five seasons with the Leões, Carvalho has appeared in a total of 154 games and scoring 10 goals so far.

The Hammers look to continue a busy transfer window that has seen them land Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Joe Hart, Marko Arnautovic and Pablo Zabaleta.

Meanwhile, Hammers midfielder Sofiane Feghouli is said to be wanted by Turkish outfit Galatasary and midfielder Robert Snodgrass has emerged as a target of Championship club Aston Villa.
