Newcastle make a new £ 28million offer for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos and plan to add two center-backs in January


Newcastle have made a new offer for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos and plan to sign two center-backs before the January transfer window closes, according to talkSPORT.

The Magpies failed in their initial attempt to land the Brazilian, with an offer of around £ 25million rejected by a Sevilla side currently challenging Real Madrid for the LaLiga title.

Howe desperately needs new recruits to try to stem the humiliations

The Toons have now increased their bid to £ 28million, and it is also understood that they plan to land two center-backs in January.

The news comes following the £ 20million transfer of Chris Wood from Burnley to St. James Park.

The New Zealand international has followed Kieran Trippier through the door after joining Atletico Madrid for £ 12million.

The signings follow the arrival in November of manager Eddie Howe, who was the first signing recruited by the club’s new owner.

Newcastle became the richest football club in the world in November when it was bought out by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund, backed by Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, whose net worth is estimated at 320 billion of pounds sterling.

Howe was once supported by Trippier and Wood, and now the center back is the position of need

However, despite the early changes, there hasn’t been much of a difference on the pitch yet as the club are 19th in the Premier League table and reeling from a humiliating FA Cup loss to Cambridge.

Howe’s side have won just one league victory in 19 games and conceded 42 goals, the most common in the division.

Newcastle were also heavily linked with Botman but Lille seem desperate to hold on

Diego Carlos could play a key role in resolving the issue, but it looks like he won’t be joined by compatriot Sven Botman.

Dutch defender Botman is wanted by much of the European elite, much like Diego Carlos, but his Lille club are unwilling to negotiate.

Reports claim the French side will not sell their winning defender until the summer, leaving Newcastle to consider an even bigger offer after turning down nearly £ 30million.
