Newcastle in advanced talks over £30m deal for Diego Carlos

A Newcastle United transfer claim has been made, regarding their pursuit of Sevilla beast Diego Carlos…

What’s the talk?

Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie has revealed that the Magpies are in talks over a swoop for the centre-back as they look to strike a deal for £30m.

PIF are looking to improve Eddie Howe’s squad and could now be on the verge of making their third signing of the transfer window, following on from the arrivals of Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier earlier in the month.

Downie Tweeted: “Diego Carlos has told Sevilla he wants to leave for Newcastle United. @SkyKaveh is told the Brazilian defender is handing in a transfer request to the club President. Newcastle are in advanced discussions with the Spanish club. Fee being discussed in region of £30m #NUFC.”

Should Newcastle sign Carlos?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Delight

Newcastle fans will surely be delighted with this news as it suggests that the club are finally close to sealing a move for the centre-back.

They will also be buzzing with the fact that the player is desperate enough to make the switch that he has been willing to go as far as to hand in a transfer request. It shows a desire from Carlos to join the Toon Army and supporters will love to see the passion from him to get the deal done.

 

The Magpies need defensive reinforcements to bolster their XI as they have struggled badly in that department throughout the campaign. Only Norwich have conceded more goals in the Premier League than Eddie Howe’s team and this suggests that they need players to come in and strengthen the backline.

In Carlos, they could be about to land someone who is able to do exactly that. He has proven his quality in La Liga for Sevilla as he has been consistently delivering quality performances and that shows that he can perform at the top level.

The Brazilian defender has averaged a SofaScore rating of 7.14 in the Spanish top flight. He has helped them to keep an impressive ten clean sheets in 19 games, whereas Newcastle have only kept one clean sheet so far this season – in their only win of the campaign against Burnley.

Who scored more goals for Newcastle? An easy one to start...

Therefore, Carlos would surely have the ability to come in and lift the Toon defence to ensure that they keep more clean sheets and give themselves a better chance of picking up points.

Being able to score goals is almost useless if you cannot rely on your backline to avoid conceding two or three goals per match and that is why fans will be delighted with this potential deal for the Sevilla man.
