William Carvalho has admitted his love for Arsenal in an interview with Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
The Sporting Lisbon midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent years, with Arsene Wenger a huge fan of him.
‘I prefer not to say, but there is a club with which I’ve always empathised – Arsenal.
‘Because of a player who was I very fond of, in this case I wear the number of him: Thierry Henry, a player with whom I always empathised too.
‘Maybe this is why I look with more attention to the Premier League.’
