Liverpool keeping tabs with €35m-rated South American defender

      Comments Off on Liverpool keeping tabs with €35m-rated South American defender

Sevilla are willing to cash in on centre-back Diego Carlos this summer, and Reds are one of the clubs interested in signing him. The Brazilian defender has been in very good form in La Liga this campaign, playing 25 games as Sevilla have conceded only 29 goals.

Sevilla are apparently willing to let him leave this summer to help ease the financial pressure placed upon them by the sudden stoppage of football and the prospects of playing football behind closed doors.

Whilst Diego has a €75m release clause, Sevilla may be willing to accept smaller, yet still substantial offers for the centre-back.

Throughout the last few weeks, Reds have continued to be linked with defenders such as Kalidou Koulibaly and Domagoj Vida, and now the links to Diego have emerged.

As it stands, it would make no sense for Liverpool to spend big money on a defender as they have four excellent options in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren.

However, Dejan Lovren has been linked with a move away from this summer and if he does depart, then it’s easy to see the Merseyside giants making a move to replace himself

Given the current climate, nobody will be sure about how the transfer market will react and as such, the Reds could end up getting Carlos for a relative bargain if Sevilla are forced to cash in.
