Aston Villa reached an agreenment to sign Diego Carlos according to Fabrizio Romano.
Negotiations are over as Villa will pay Sevilla €31m for Diego Carlos with personal agreenment with the player reached too.
Villa have already been busy this summer, signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona and then bringing Atletico Madrid target Boubacar Kamara to the club from Marseille.
Securing Carlos’ signature would be a coup. The Brazilian has been a pivotal part of Sevilla’s defence ever since he arrived at the Sanchez-Pizjuan from Nantes in the summer of 2019.
He’s since gone on to become a Brazilian international, forming an airtight partnership with Jules Kounde at the heart of Sevilla’s defence that helped them win the Europa League in 2020. Sevilla have also secured Champions League qualification three years running for the first time ever. Carlos was a huge part of that
Diego Carlos is expected to be in England in the next few hours to complete the medical and finalise personal terms
