Sevilla president, Jose Castro has refused to rule out a potential sale of rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Diego Carlos this summer.

Carlos has outperformed expectation since moving to Seville from French outfit Nantes last summer. The Brazilian’s dominant displays at the back for Julen Lopetegui’s side this season have seemingly made the defender a wanted man across Europe.

The Telegraph reported in June that Jose Mourinho was big fan of Carlos and was keen on bringing him to Tottenham, but reports indicate that Manchester City and Liverpool have also identified the 27-year-old as a potential target ahead of the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, La Nervion previously reported that Sevilla will not let the central defender leave this summer unless his €70million (£63m) release clause is met.

Castro has now admitted that anything could happen with respect to the defender’s future.

When asked if Carlos could be on his way out from Seville, the La Liga club’s president told Marca: “I do not know what is going to happen in the market. It seems that it will be a rare, atypical (market).”

Alderwerield, Dier and Sanchez have all been pretty solid since the restart. Even if Jose and the coaching staff had planned a major restructuring at centre-back ahead of next season, they would likely reconsider their plans following our impressive defensive displays over the last few weeks. I do not see the logic of spending big money on someone like Carlos when positions like right-back, defensive midfielder, and striker are more in need of urgent investment this summer.
