Newcastle: Kaveh Solhekol makes Diego Carlos claim

A teasing update has emerged regarding Newcastle United’s attempts to sign Diego Carlos from Sevilla…

What’s the talk?

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol has provided an update on the club’s pursuit of the Brazilian defender this month.

NUFC360 quote him as saying: “The latest information I have is that things are looking positive. The players himself wants to move to Newcastle. Everything I’m hearing about that deal makes me feel like it is moving in the right direction. [@SkyKaveh] #NUFC”

Should Newcastle sign Carlos?

Yes

Yes

No

Excitement for Newcastle fans

This update from Solhekol will surely get Newcastle fans feeling excited, as it suggests that Carlos is likely to be on his way to St James’ Park.

He has averaged an impressive SofaScore rating of 7.14 for Sevilla in La Liga and 7.03 in the Champions League this season, showing that he is currently in flying form and could be able to come in and hit the ground running on Tyneside.

The centre-back could be an exciting signing for the fans to enjoy, as he has shown that he can perform consistently at the top level, albeit that it remains to be seen whether or not he can adapt to the Premier League.

Spanish football analyst Domagoj Kostanjšak previously outlined the defender’s key attributes and hailed his quality in La Liga, saying: “He’s a really physical player – he’s built like a tank and they don’t call him ‘The Beast’ for no reason. He’s really good in the air and he’s decent on the ball as well – you have to be under Julen Lopetegui.

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

“He’s been in my top three or four centre-backs in Spain this season, along with Raphael Varane and Inigo Martinez – he’s been a bit of a revelation. He’s playing the best football of his career and he immediately settled in. I would say there is a shade of Kalidou Koulibaly about him – not the same quality, of course, but I would compare him to him.”

Newcastle’s defence has been dreadful in the Premier League this season, with the second-worst record in the top flight, and Eddie Howe is in desperate need of reinforcements in that position. Therefore, fans will surely be excited by the prospect of someone as talented as Carlos coming in to try and solve that problem.
