Diaz’s arrival came from nowhere towards the end of last week and it has given everyone associated with the club a huge boost.
The next round of league matches comes during the middle of next week, with Liverpool hosting Leicester on February 10, looking to avenge their post-Christmas defeat.
Fantasy Football players will no doubt be pondering who to pick for that gameweek and Diaz has now been included in the popular game.
He is classed as a midfielder and will cost £8.0m for those who trust him to deliver the goods straight away, as confirmed by the official Twitter account on Monday.
Whether including him in your side is a wise decision remains to be seen – he scored 14 goals and assisted another five in 18 league starts for Porto this season – with Jurgen Klopp famed for easing new signings into the team.
That being said, Mane and Salah have now reached the semi-finals at the Africa Cup of Nations, so both could still be unavailable for the Leicester game.
That would heighten Diaz’s hopes of making a maiden league appearance for the Reds, with his debut potentially coming at home to Cardiff in the FA Cup fourth round this Sunday.
