These Liverpool fans are slightly cautious over rumoured target Diego Carlos, who is currently playing for Sevilla in La Liga.
Diego Carlos was born in Barra Bonita in Brazil and currently plays as a centre-back for La Liga giants Sevilla. The 26-year-old has played 18 times in the league this season, impressively scoring twice despite playing as a defender.
Here’s what the Liverpool fans had to say about the Diego Carlos transfer rumours:

Would you like to see Diego Carlos join Liverpool?
With the rumoured interest and desire to get a deal concluded in time for next season, it appears some of the Liverpool faithful don’t have full confidence in whether he is right for them. Although one fan suggested that they needed depth at the back, they mentioned that the type of transfer being reported doesn’t really fit with what the Anfield outfit typically do.

It’s definitely an area we need depth but this amount doesn’t tie with our previous style of doing business

What Do We Think?
When you think about a possible Virgil van Dijk and Diego Carlos centre-back duo, you can’t help but get just a little bit excited. However, with Joe Gomez already at Anfield and Joel Matip also very much on the scene, the centre-back area doesn’t seem like a place that needs to be added too, especially given he could cost around £64m to bring to Anfield.
We would obviously love to see this deal happen, but with the depth that Jurgen Klopp already has in the central defender area, we sadly can’t see this happening right now.
