Sheffield Wednesday currently sit one point and one place outside of the play-off zone and it has been inconsistency that has cost them this season.
Fantastic wins against the likes of Aston Villa and Huddersfield have been contrasted with sloppy losses against such teams as Burton Albion and Ipswich.
Last season’s campaign ended with Sheffield Wednesday’s heartbreaking defeat at Wembley against Hull, consigning the Owls to another year in the Championship.
The target will be promotion yet again this season but Carvalhal will be concerned by his team’s worrying dips in and out of form.
Therefore he might be forced into action during the upcoming January transfer window.
But in order to bring players in, Carvalhal might be told to offload some fringe players to free up the funds and wage space.
Here are two players he could ship out and one player to arrive as a replacement this January.
