Diego Carlos has impressed under Julen Lopetegui at Sevilla, attracting the admiring glances of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham.
Some players take their time to adjust to rigors to competitive football. Deigo Carlos is one such footballer.
The 27-year-old has played for eight different clubs and after a single season with Sevilla will probably be on the move again.
Such has been Carlos’ career that referee Tony Chapron kicked him during Nantes Ligue 1 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
But that is not only his calling card, Lionel Messi was also grabbing him by the throat after receiving rough treatment. Despite this, he was linked with a move to Barcelona.
If anything, Carlos is tenacious and this is why Premier League clubs in need of defensive reinforcements want to add him to their ranks.
Marca report that Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with the Brazilian defender. A move to the Premier League will cap off an interesting trajectory. Especially considering that he never played at youth levels for the Selecao.
With plenty of years remaining on his contract, he will not come cheap. Moreover, with Champions League to participate in, Sevilla can name their prize for the defender.
Interested parties will have to meet his release clause and cough up €75 million. The coronavirus pandemic might have hit the bottom line of clubs but expect the release clause being met.
