Liverpool closely monitoring €35m-rated La Liga defender

The Merseyside giants are weighing up their options and are looking at Diego Carlos as a potential summer signing to their squad in the summer. Sevilla centre-back has been previously linked with the current PL leaders and is one of many names shortlisted by the club, as per the report.

The report also states that Sevilla are aware that Carlos and Lucas Ocampos will be heavily courted during the summer. The losses suffered has put a dent on their ability to add footballers. But, Monchi has been advised to draw up a plan where offloading one of the aforementioned sought-after players could rake in enough money to reinvest into the club.

Reds, on the other hand, are not set to spend crazy either, which could make this transfer difficult. Liverpool boss is looking to add depth to his squad with good additions and budget transfers. But, Virgil van Dijk does need an absolute partner, something the Merseyside giants have failed to find within.

Liverpool have been impressed by Joe Gomez but have seen the likes of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip falter at times, thus raising the question of a quality signing in the said position. The Brazilian defender is a no-nonsense centre-back, and his skillset is a throwback to the classic defenders that dominated the previous era in football.

But, Diego can be helpful in counter-attacks with his skill to walk the ball long more accurately than others. The 27-year-old defender has a good head on him that is equally dangerous on both parts of the pitch. His defensive acumen, along with his robust nature makes him a reliable partner for van Dijk.
