The Brazilian is set to land in England for medicals

Aston Villa will target another defensive signing after agreeing a deal for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos worth an initial £25.6million.

The Brazilian will have discussions and a medical in the coming hours after travelling to England, while the fee for the 29-year-old could reach nearly £30m with add-ons.

Villa have made a rapid start to the transfer window by signing midfielder Boubacar Kamara after the Frenchman allowed his Marseille contract to expire, and they hope to re-sign goalkeeper Robin Olsen after finalising the move for Carlos.

Boss Steven Gerrard is eyeing still more reinforcements, with Rangers’ Calvin Bassey another on their list, while the club bid for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma last January and retain an interest.

Gerrard would also like another centre-forward

Having assessed his squad closely since taking charge last November, Gerrard is clear on who he would like to keep. 

Fringe players like Trezeguet, Bertrand Traore and Matt Targett are among those likely to be allowed to leave, while midfielder Douglas Luiz has been followed by Jose Mourinho’s Roma for nearly a year.
