News of out England says Liverpool are to sign a £60 million-rated star this month to fill in for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
With Mane and Salah well off to AFCON 2021 to represent Senegal and Egypt respectively, Jurgen Klopp has reportedly identified FC Porto’s Luis Diaz as an urgent signing.
“Liverpool are close to clinching an estimated £60million deal for Porto star Luis Diaz,” the Sun reported.
“The Colombian winger has cemented himself as one of the hottest talents in Europe over the past 12 months.
“Reds boss Jurgen Klopp saw Diaz shine in both Champions League group stage games against Porto in September and November – and is said to have been impressed.
“Klopp would prefer to wait until the summer, but the absence of his top attackers – as well as several injury issues – sees him tempted to splash the cash this window.
“Diaz has a reported £67m release clause, yet Liverpool are hoping to get him for slightly less,” the report added.
Meanwhile, the Reds are now looking ahead to facing Arsenal in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup on Thursday.
