Diego Carlos news

Carlos on radar of EPL trio

Liverpool and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing Sevilla defender Diego Carlos this summer.

The 28-year-old was heavily linked with Newcastle United in January, but the La Liga club were reluctant to do business.

They are keen on keeping hold of him, but Fichajes claims that the centre-back may push for an exit during the summer.

The Magpies are still interested in signing him, but they are set to face stiff competition from the Reds and Cityzens.

Jurgen Klopp's side are braced for the departure of Joe Gomez, and Carlos could be a suitable replacement for them.

Meanwhile, the Cityzens could likewise see Nathan Ake leaving, having failed to cement a regular starting position.

The big question lies whether the Brazilian is prepared to accept a back up role with the duo instead of joining the Magpies.

Eddie Howe's side won't offer him European football, but they are expected to be on the up with the Saudi investment.
