Liverpool ready to trigger Diego Carlos’ release clause next summer

    Liverpool are reportedly on the brink of beating Real Madrid to the signature of the highly-rated Sevilla defender Diego Carlos, according to recent claims from Spain

    As reported by the Spanish outlet, El Desmarque, the reigning Champions League holders have already found an agreement with the player, as they see him as a perfect partner to Virgil van Dijk.

    Additionally, the Reds are prepared to trigger the defender’s staggering Β£64m release clause to take him away from La Liga next summer.

    After establishing himself as an indispensable first-team member at Sevilla, the 26-year-old has become a real target for Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

    Perez sees Carlos as an ideal candidate to replace the aging Sergio Ramos, but Jurgen Klopp seems to be leading the chase at this point.

    If the Premier League giants pull off a deal, the Nantes man will become the world’s third most expensive defender in history behind Van Dijk and Manchester United’s Harry Maguire.

    The Merseyside outfit may have spent a small fortune to land the Dutchman from Southampton, but he has repaid every penny.

    Widely regarded as the best centre-back on the planet, the 28-year-old has been a cornerstone for Liverpool’s success in both England and Europe, but he does need a reliable partner.

    Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip have both been dealing with injuries and consistency, which is why Klopp wants another top-class defender to complete a defensive force to be reckoned with.
