Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho appears to be in the market for a new centre-back this summer, which has led to many supporters reacting to a recent report on social media.
According to Mike McGrath of the Telegraph, the Spurs boss is a keen admirer of Sevilla colossus Diego Carlos, but a move for him may be difficult with the Spanish club expecting at least £35m for his services.
The 27-year-old has become a solid option in La Liga having averaged 5 clearances, 1.1 tackles and 2.6 aerial duels won per game, via WhoScored.
Who would you rather sign?
Just last week, Carlos put in an impressive display when he managed to contribute towards a clean sheet against a Barcelona attack which included Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Diego Carlos would be great. His release clause is very high though https://t.co/M5PqntPyCt

What a signing this would be, if he's available for 40-50mil we need to go in for him. https://t.co/xBAT2kqRiO

Seeing as though he’s actually good and young, yes he’s expensive and no Levy won’t shell it out

Please be true this guy is an absolute beast

Been one of the best CBs in la liga this season, 27 yrs old. One of the reasons Sevilla are doing well this season. Has a €75 million release clause tho so he won’t be cheap
— DIER-SANCHEZ (@SANCHEZSZNN) June 27, 2020
he’s actually decent though

Good CB but will cost a lot, won’t happen

The only man able to stop Messi…my god

Diego Carlos would be an awesome signing. A top class CB who’d add real steel to @SpursOfficial‘s defense.
