Report: Real Betis open to William Carvalho departure, amid long-standing Wolves interest

Wolverhampton Wanderers may have the chance to land William Carvalho this summer, with Real Betis supposedly open to offloading the midfielder.

Estadio Deportivo have claimed the Portugal international is likely to be leaving the Spanish outfit.

Carvalho has struggled this term, and his form even led to an international snub from Fernando Santos last month.

The player – who has 64 caps for Portugal – has struggled to regain momentum following a muscular injury sustained a few months before the suspension of football last year due to the pandemic.

Carvalho has been unable to start games regularly, and it appears Betis are now ready to sanction his exit.

Estadio Deportivo say Inter Milan are keen, but that there is ‘everlasting’ interest from Wolves.

Wolves’ interest was reported by the same publication back in February, with that particular article suggesting it would be Carvalho’s preference to join the Premier League club.

Wolves shouldn’t rush in for Carvalho

Based on Carvalho’s last year, any signing of him this summer by Wolves would probably be a bit of a risk.

Athough he is a great player on his day and potentially quited well-suited to the Premier League due to his physicality, his record with injuries is just not ideal.

After the year Wolves have had with injuries, it would probably be best to avoid signing Carvalho, unless he’d be coming in for cheap and on reasonable wages.
