Arsenal have reportedly joined the race in signing Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.
The Telegraph says Liverpool fresh competition for rumoured transfer target Carlos.
The Reds have been linked with a move for the Brazilian centre-back in recent weeks, with the 27 years old thought to have a £68m release clause in his contract.
The Gunners are eyeing defensive reinforcements with their leaky back four proving an issue throughout the season
Mikel Arteta has a host of centre-halves to choose from at the Emirates but is set to lead a summer overhaul in order to fight for trophies next season .
Carlos, who has had a fantastic season has a long list of admirers in Spain and the Premier League after helping the Andalusians secure Champions League football.
Arsenal have joined the Reds in expressing their interest in the defender with some pundits believing that Manchester City are also keeping an eye on the Brazilian defender having made some poor defensive record this season despite them finishing second in the English Premier League.
The report adds that Gunners manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu are looking at Carlos as part of a major squad overhaul this summer.
Sevilla may be tempted to accept a slightly lower fee of £54m should a potential suitor come knocking.
