Diego Carlos’ view on NUFC move revealed as Sevilla set price – Are Toon eyeing him & Botman?

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle have been in deep discussions with Sevilla over a move for highly rated Brazilian centre-back, Diego Carlos.

As reported yesterday, a £25m offer has been knocked back by the Spaniards, with them believed to have slapped a £35m asking price on the defender’s head.

The Mail also report that the 28-year-old is ‘open’ to the idea of joining Trippier on Tyneside, so it seems he could be our back-up option to Botman…unless we’re trying to sign both, that is!

After seeing a £30m offer rejected for the Dutchman earlier this week, it was revealed this morning that we have now launched an improved bid for the Lille star; believed to be around £40m, according to The Telegraph.

Back to Carlos, he is proving to be a stalwart for the La Liga club as they are serious title contenders this season, with them currently second in La Liga and just five points behind Real Madrid with a game in hand.

Who knows, the club could even be looking at a double deal given our desperate need for new centre-backs! Even if that’s wishful thinking, it’s hugely promising to read reports stating the pair are both eager to join.

If Carlos’ aggressive style of play is anything to go by, he and new boy Kieran Trippier certainly seem up for the fight!

  1. If we were able to add both these guys I would be ecstatic. Serious talk of signing Digne too. All 3 in addition to Trippier would be enough to save our season and would be a fantastic start to the new year. I know we definitely could use more additions in midfield and s tricker but in all honesty if we just stop leaking awful goals we will be fine. Especially with a manager who actually has some forward thinking tactics who will be able to finally stop worrying about giving up so many goal per match.
