Everything to know on Luis Diaz deal & the 2 who could depart – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool’s news today is all about Luis Diaz, unsurprisingly! If you’ve been under a rock for months, he’s the Colombian winger we wanted. Today it appears we are close!


The Diaz deal

Reds woke up on Friday to the news that we’ve made our move and are closing in – the final days of the transfer window are all about getting the signing over the line.

Luis Diaz is our top and presumably only target to sign this month, with a deal agreed worth up to £50m set to land the left-sided attacker. It is basically made up of a £37.5m guaranteed fee, plus £12.5m in add-ons.

Some reports state we bid much lower than Spurs did, but the player only wants to come to Anfield, so that’s the transfer being pursued.

The fans are largely very, very happy indeed, with the “perfect” fit to our front line providing a real boost if we get the deal done.

  • Newcastle have done it again! They’ve gone from Diego Carlos of Sevilla to Dan Burn of Brighton! Lunatic, ludicrous scattergunning. Both have been turned down!
  • Spurs have decided to reward Hugo Lloris signing a new contract by immediately giving him a new team-mate to keep out of the team all year. They want Alexander Nubel of Bayern’s Bench, on loan at Monaco
