Liverpool fans get first-hand look at rumoured £67m transfer target Luis Diaz

Liverpool fans get a first-hand look at reported transfer target Luis Diaz on Wednesday. The Reds supposedly see him as a fantastic option.

Liverpool have a strange habit of coming up against supposed transfer targets. Perhaps that’s just a sign of how many players they’re linked with, however – it’s certainly a lot.

But one recent link might have some merit behind it: Luis Diaz. Portuguese outlet Jornal de Notícias claims Liverpool have eyes on the player and he heads to Anfield on Wednesday.

Diaz is currently the in-form player in Portuguese football. The 24-year-old – playing exclusively from the left-wing – has 11 goals in 15 games across the Primeira Liga and Champions League.

Hence the supposed price – £67m. It’s a lot for any player, let alone to drop midway through the campaign. But Diaz is someone who continues to impress, and not just for Porto.

He was fantastic for Colombia at this summer’s Copa America, scoring a magnificent goal against Argentina. He eventually finished as joint-top scorer alongside Lionel Messi.

The interest makes sense, then, especially as Liverpool will lost both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah this winter. They head to the Africa Cup of Nations, meaning signing a winger makes sense.

Fabrizio Romano believes that’s the plan, anyway.

Luis Diaz – Liverpool transfer target?

Diaz is certainly a player we hear about, rather than see up close. Wednesday changes that, however, as he should play at Anfield for Porto.

It’s a game in which the Portuguese side will go all-out looking for a win, while the Reds don’t actually need a result. They’re already through.

But a solid performance from Diaz would generate further hype and, potentially, inspire Liverpool to act on their supposed interest. It’s something we saw them do with Takumi Minamino back in 2019, albeit at a much cheaper price.

Diaz is the one to watch, though. As he continues to light up Portuguese football, Liverpool fans will want to see if he could do the same in the Premier League.

Anfield should give us an idea of whether this is one to pursue.
