After failing to convince Radja Nainggolan to a move to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea now turn their face towards 24-year-old Portuguese EURO 2016 winner William Carvalho. The Mirror claims that the Sporting CP midfielder would cost the Blues £30 million.

William Carvalho played a crucial role in Portugal’s successful EURO 2016 campaign. The holding midfielder anchored in the centre of the pitch while working tirelessly and was a force to reckon.

William Carvalho is a player with a very conservative approach towards the game, he is not a pacey player, but surely one of players who works silently throughout the game. Precisely, he is a player with qualities similar to that of Barcelona’s Sergio Busquet and Real Madrid’s Casemiro.

Signing him will be a huge boost and a good buy for Chelsea, as they have already failed to sign Radja Nainggolan, with him confirming a stay at Roma.

Carvalho will work easily in Conte’s formation with his defensive skills and forward threading passes. He has already showcased his talent in EURO 2016 and proved his quality.
