Sevilla defenders Diego Carlos and Jules Kounde have been backed for a big move to the Premier League by former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves. Carlos and Kounde lined up at the back for Sevilla for the Europa League semi-final against United on Sunday. And ahead of the match, Hargreaves was full of praise for the duo.
Carlos, 27, only joined Sevilla from Nantes in 2019 but has been linked with a move to Premier League champions Liverpool, as well as Chelsea and Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Kounde, 21, came through the ranks at Bordeaux before also moving to the Spanish club last year.
Hargreaves believes there will be plenty of interest in the pair following the United clash and reckons Chelsea or Arsenal could be two of the clubs in for them.
Hargreaves said on BT Sport: “Well I think if you look at all the games, you look at what happened to Barcelona, you look at what happened to City, everyone needs a centre-back and I think Sevilla have the best centre-back, the most underrated centre-back, in European football in Diego Carlos.

“I think he is a fabulous player, Brazilian, 27, is rugged, can compete, really good player.
“They’ve got a young Frenchman, Kounde, who plays right next to him, only 21.
