Liverpool and Man City chasing Sevilla defender Diego Carlos

Liverpool and Manchester City are chasing Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.

Sevilla signed the pacey defender, who can play centrally or at full-back, from French club Nantes last summer for £13.5million (€15m).

A huge £68m (€75m) release clause was immediately inserted into the contract of the 27-year-old, though Liverpool and City are now reportedly set to challenge the Spanish club's resolve.

Marca says Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola want to add the Brazilian to their ranks, ahead of next season's battle for the Premier League title.

Despite the release clause, Sevilla are renowned in European football as a selling club, and are said to be willing to listen to offers.
