Betis looks to the winter market with the hope that a footballer may arrive who will deliver more consistency to their current squad, especially in the defensive section. But the first step could be to find outlets that make it possible to improve the financial coffers of the entity. In this sense, there is a repeated proper name that has its future full of questions: William Carvalho. The Portuguese is the firm desire of Jorge Jesús, Benfica coach, to strengthen the core of his team. In Heliópolis they are waiting for offers that have not yet arrived and would not oppose their departure in the event that the transfer amount was around fifteen million euros given the high investment that was made more than two years ago.
The newspaper Record reflects this interest of Jorge Jesús, who did not hesitate to transfer his desire to meet Carvalho again to his club. It was he who managed to get the most out of the central midfielder when he managed it at Sporting de Portugal. According to the news, he intends to have a pivot that he knows well and is debated between the Betis player and Arao, a Brazilian soccer player from Flamengo. Needs may force Benfica to make an effort to sign the player, who for the moment showed an irregular performance at the start of the campaign, especially in the last days despite having the confidence of Manuel Pellegrini. The Chilean already reiterated on several occasions his wish that Carvalho not move from the Betic team, although at the moment he is injured and missed the last appointment of his team.
