Responding to recent news courtesy of Spanish outlet SPORT, many Liverpool fans have blasted links with Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos as a replacement for Dejan Lovren – citing the fact we already have Joe Gomez and Joel Matip as options. 

Carlos, who has started 25 games for the La Liga side this season, is reportedly seen by manager Jurgen Klopp as a candidate centre-back partner for Virgil Van Dijk next campaign.

According to WhoScored, eight other Sevilla players have averaged more tackles than the Brazilian this season, with the 27-year-old also only making the fourth-most interceptions out of Julen Lopetegui’s squad.

Should we sign Diego Carlos?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This could be an indication as to why many Reds in our fan base seem bemused with the links to sign him as a potential partner to Van Dijk, with some supporters stating that it would be a ‘pointless signing‘ all the while citing their opinions that Gomez is a better option.
