Arsenal linked with £40m West Ham target

Augsburg are not keen on selling full-back Philipp Max and PSG are ready to offer a Manchester United contract rebel a four-year deal to head to France, according to Friday’s European papers.

Arsenal may finally be ready to move for long-term target William Carvalho next summer, according to reports in Portugal.

The Sporting Lisbon midfielder has been rumoured to be Arsenal-bound just about every summer since what feels like the beginning of time, but fresh reports claim a €40million deal is in place to bring him to the Emirates after the World Cup in Russia.

Should the report prove accurate, it would represent a blow to West Ham, who were close to signing the 25-year-old last summer.

AUGSBURG KEEN TO KEEP MAX
Suitors of Augsburg left-back Philipp Max have seen their hopes slip.

Chelsea and Manchester United scouts watched Max last weekend, ahead of a potential January swoop, but the Bundesliga club are not intent on seeing the 24-year-old leave.

Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton have also been linked with the full-back, who is under contract in Germany until 2022.

But Augsburg chief Steffen Reuter says the club are under no pressure to sell their star man.

“That our players are interesting, shows that they’re producing good performances. We are not interested in selling,” Reuter said.
