Manchester City are threatening Liverpool plans for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.
AS says City will compete with Liverpool for Carlos.
City are interested in the Brazilian as Pep Guardiola searches for a new defender this summer.
The report adds that Liverpool are also on the look-out for a centre-back after allowing Dejan Lovren to leave Anfield this week.
If City want Carlos, he will cost at least €60m, and has a €75m release clause in his contract.
