Brazilian defender Diego Carlos insists that he is fully focused on Sevilla despite talk of interest from Barcelona.

Diego Carlos has insisted that he is currently fully focused on Sevilla despite suggestions that Barcelona want to sign him during this summer's transfer window.

The 27-year-old has impressed in La Liga this season following a move from Nantes last summer, leading to suggestions that Barca want to bring him to Camp Nou.

Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the Brazilian, who has a contract at the Estadio Ramon until the summer of 2024, which allegedly includes a release clause of £64m.

However, the defender has said that he is not prepared to make a decision on his future at this moment in time as he is focused on completing the season with Julen Lopetegui's side despite the coronavirus outbreak.

"I don't know if Barcelona wants me. There is a lot of news that comes out and that we see, but I don't know. What I think about is to finish the league as good as possible and I leave that for later," Carlos told Onda Cero.

"They are very serious things for me and these situations must be left for later. I am focused exclusively on playing and finishing the season with Sevilla as good as possible."

Carlos has scored twice in 31 appearances at club level this season.
