Sevilla could try to sell Diego Carlos to Liverpool, according to reports. The Reds reportedly want the Brazilian.
Marca claims that Sevilla might have to admit that they need money this summer. The best way of attaining it quickly is selling players, of course.
They may only need to sell one, however – if it’s a star talent. They have two obvious options in that regard, with both Lucas Ocampos and Diego Carlos commanding high fees.
Ocampos only arrived last summer but ten goals in 22 games will draw in suitors. Carlos, similarly, only joined Sevilla last summer and has impressed enough that Liverpool allegedly want him.
It means that Sevilla may turn to Liverpool when it comes to selling a player, given their interest in Carlos. Whether they could get the full value of his £67m release clause is another issue, however.
What RTK has to say
We find it unlikely that Liverpool would spend £67m on a centre-back right now. They’re reportedly unsure about spending £50m on Timo Werner, for one thing, and he’s a player they need more.
If they truly do want Carlos, though, then a lower fee could maybe tempt them. But Marca’s report claims that Sevilla don’t want to undersell any players, seemingly ruling out any type of bargain.
It’s a similar story to one out of Italy recently. Reports there claimed that AS Roma could sell Nicolo Zaniolo and would seek out Liverpool as the most likely to do a deal.
Like that one, though, we just can’t see this one happening in the current climate.
