And West Ham are said to be hopeful of pushing a deal through, adds Jones, despite several other Premier League clubs having previously failed to secure a deal for the highly-rated defensive midfielder.

The Angola-born Carvalho, who moved to Europe with his family as a child and joined his current club at ther age of just 13 in 2005 is understood to have a release clause of 39.5million in his contract.

* Aston Villa are keen on signing West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass, according to various sources. The 29-year-old, who joined West Ham in January in a 10million switch from relegated Hull City is being linked with a loan move to Villa Park.

* Sofiane Feghouli remains a West Ham player despite having agreed terms with Turkish club Galatasary. Regardless, the Algerian winger is still expected to complete his move to the Super Lig ahead of the start of the new season.

* Former Ajax youth star Ezra Walian has joined West Ham on trial. The 19-year-old forward, who represents Indonesia at international level was released by Ajax at the end of last season and is currrently a free agent.
