Slaven Bilic has brought in experienced defender Pablo Zabaleta to solve his problem right back position, England goalkeeper Joe Hart, Marko Arnautovic, striker Javier Hernandez and young prospect Saed Haksabanovic.

West Ham United are launching a £25m bid for Sporting Lisbon and Portugal midfielder William Carvalho, according to reports.

It would appear the Croatian is not finished with his summer spending as he goes in search of the Portugal global as a man to fill the void he now has in the holding midfielder position.

The Portugal global has been chased by a number of elite clubs, including Juventus and Arsenal, his biggest admirers in England.

Luzon quake not connected to "The Big One"
Intensity 4 was felt in Manila; Calapan, Mindoro; Subic, Zambales; Rosario, Cavite; and Sablayan, Oriental Mindoro. A magnitude 6.2 quake struck the Philippines southwest of Manila on August 11, 2017.

Manchester City, Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion are also interested in acquiring Carvalho - all teams in need of defensive midfielders.

The 25-year-old has been widely linked with a move to England over the last few years and this summer hasn't been any different with a number of Premier League clubs believed to be after him.

Meanwhile, Hammers midfielder Sofiane Feghouli is said to be wanted by Turkish outfit Galatasary and midfielder Robert Snodgrass has emerged as a target of Championship club Aston Villa.

It has been claimed William has been convinced by West Ham to move to the London Stadium and the Hammers are now working on an agreement with Sporting Lisbon.
