Highly-rated Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho has hinted that Arsenal would be his preference should he ever consider a move to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to the Gunners in recent transfer windows but nothing has materialised for the Portugal international.

Although claiming to be a Gunners fan, William, whose contract expires in 2018, says that he has unfinished business in the form of a Primeira Liga title with Sporting.

"I am where I want to be right now, which is Sporting, but if I ever do leave then it's a sign that my work here was well done," he told A Bola.

"I dream of winning the Primeira Liga here. "I prefer not to say too much, but there is a club with which I've always been fond of: Arsenal.

Because of Thierry Henry, a player with whom I have always enjoyed watching. "Maybe this is why I look with so much affection to the Premier League."

Liverpool have also been linked with him in recent years.
