Sevilla defender Diego Carlos pushed about Liverpool offer: My agent...

Sevilla defender Diego Carlos admits he's allowing his agent to take care of interest from the likes of Liverpool.

The Brazilian is interesting the Reds, along with several other European heavyweights.

When asked if he has received an offer from Liverpool, Carlos told Estadio Deportivo: “So far, my agent does not talk to me about those situations.

“I am not interested to know about other teams.

“I always tell him that, if he is going to tell me something, then it [must] be something firm. He should not come to me with stories, because I must have my head in Sevilla.

“I don't want those things to cause me a distraction."

Carlos' current Sevilla contract runs until 2024, with a release clause worth €75m [£66m].

Liverpool are said to be eyeing up the player as a potential replacement for Dejan Lovren, who looks likely to leave Anfield at the end of the season.
