Liverpool are ready to ‘cast the net’ on Sevilla defender Diego Carlo this summer after his impressive performances this season.
That’s according to Estadio Deportivo, who believe the Brazilian defender will be in high demand come the summer transfer window.
Using lyrics from penned by the singer-songwriter Luis Eduardo Aute, who passed away this week aged 76, the website explains the Sevilla defender’s situation and transfer speculation around him.
They say that clubs such as Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid, but ‘mainly Liverpool’ are ready to ‘cast the nets’ on Diego Carlos this summer and thus disrupt Monchi’s plans.
The Sevilla director is shouting ‘aire, aire’ in response to this, which is in reference to the defender’s €70m clause.
For the Spanish club, he intones a convincing rendition of “I feel like I’m losing you” followed by “I want you not to abandon me, my love, at dawn.”
Monchi, though, ‘knows how this works’. It is not the first time that they have been forced to sell one of their stars earlier than they had expected.
That same happened with Sergio Ramos and Clément Lenglet, and it seems they are expecting a similar outcome with Carlos.
To clear that up, Liverpool are leading the race and pushing hardest to sign the 27-year-old this summer, but Sevilla are holding out for his €70m release clause.
Whether Jürgen Klopp’s side will want to pay that fee remains to be seen, although they have shown before that if they think the price is right, they are happy to pay up.
