Seville rejected Newcastle United’s second offer for defender Diego Carlos
According to Marca, Newcastle United have made a second offer worth € 25million which was rejected by Sevilla as it fell well below the asking price for defender Diego Carlos. The Magpies are looking to sign defensive reinforcements this month and have turned to Carlos after being rejected by Lille for Sven Botman.
However, Sevilla are unwilling to sell Carlos this month, especially with them in the middle of a title race, and are looking for pay close to his € 80million release clause. Marca further signaled that Newcastle are unwilling to pay so much for the defender but are still hopeful that they can secure a deal.

According to Air sports, Reims striker Hugo Ekitike is keen to sign for Newcastle United this month, with Magpies and Reims still in talks. The two sides are in talks on a deal that could reach £ 25million and the St James’ Park side are offering the 19-year-old a five-year contract.
However, Sky Sports have reported that there is a small difference in the valuation between the two clubs, but that’s nothing serious as the Magpies are said to be confident they can strike a deal down the line. It comes despite their move to Chris Wood, for a similar fee, with Eddie Howe keen to sign two new forwards this month.
