Liverpool weighing up €75m move for La Liga star

By | May 23, 2020

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly planning to make a £67m move for Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos.

The Merseyside Reds will allegedly be in the market for a new defender during the summer transfer window with Dejan Lovren widely expected to make a move on ahead of the 2020-21 season, while Joel Matip has also been rumoured with a departure.

Brazilian defender, Carlos has joined Sevilla from Ligue 1 club Nantes last summer and has been a vital figure for his Spanish team this campaign, playing 31 games in all competitions, founding back of the net twice in the process.

According to Marca, the Merseyside Reds are interested in securing the services of the defender during this summer’s transfer window, while La Liga outfits Sevilla are open to a sale due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The report, though, suggests that Julen Lopetegui’s side will insist that the centre-back’s €75m (£67m) release clause is met before allowing him to depart from the Estadio Ramon.

La Liga giants Barcelona are also believed to be keen on making a summer move for the South American defender ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
