West Ham are still a race to sign the defensive midfielder, having seen a bid rejected already of more than £30m, while Lisbon keep upping the stakes with the Hammers to close to £40m for the 25-year-old.
That has reportedly seen the Hammers turn around and say they have had enough of the games being played by Sporting but if the Portuguese side lower the demands, a deal could still be done by the end of the window.
Carvalho has yet to feature for his current employers this season with the Hammers also reportedly worried over the players fitness as a result.
Manager Jesus told Sport TV that he just wants to move on with the season.
He said: “I hope Thursday arrives so that we can get over these uncertainties and get more balance.
“It seems that these things don’t matter but it affects the group.
“The teams who want him are not stupid. Why do they want Willian, Gelson [Martins] or [Islam] Slimani? Because they know that they are quality.
“I would like them to stay but when they were just developing nobody wanted them.
“But now everybody wants them.”
