Sporting Lisbon have lowered their asking price for West Ham target William Carvalho to £30.75m which could tempt the London club back in for a January offer
According to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, Sporting need to raise cash when the window opens and are finally ready to part with their star midfielder.
This will come as good news to the Hammers, who spent most of the summer attempting to land the Portugal international.
It had been suggested that Sporting were not interested in selling William Carvalho for anything less than his £40m release clause, but it has now been reported that his price may have been lowered.
O Jogo claims that the Portuguese club are now open to offers around the €35m (£30.75m) mark, which could be the right price for West Ham too.
