Tottenham plan swap bid for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos

Tottenham are planning a summer move for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.

La Razon says Tottenham are hoping to land Sevilla's Carlos in the transfer window.

The main issue for Tottenham is the Brazilian's release clause - set at £64million.

However, Spurs may well be able to negotiate down that fee due to Sevilla's reported interest in Davinson Sanchez.

It is suggested that Sevilla may well be willing to negotiate on the fee for Carlos with the hope of landing Sanchez.

The La Liga outfit also have concerns that Jules Kounde could leave this summer, who is attracting attention from Manchester United and other clubs around Europe.

If Kounde does leave, then Sanchez appears to be Sevilla's No 1 option and Totttenham may well use that to their advantage in also trying to prise Carlos away.
