Watford join Phillips hunt & Diaz rumour rubbished – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool might not be busy with matches at the moment but there’s plenty of transfer rumours and work to keep certain figures at the club very busy.


No Diaz move for Reds…this month at least

Already ordered your Luis Diaz tops for the transfer window? Might want to send them back.

James Pearce of the Athletic reports that “senior sources” at the club say he’s “not on the agenda” for the January window at least.

The Porto star has been widely linked with an Anfield move and is rated at around the £35m mark, but it appears we won’t be shelling out this month for him.

But just in case you still want to know what to expect if he does rock up on Merseyside, here’s everything we know about the guaranteed Ballon d’Or winner for 2022 who we should definitely sign by tomorrow at the latest whatever the cost.

  • Aubameyang has tested positive for Covid along with two key Gabon team-mates four days before their AFCON adventure starts in a surprising turn of events nobody could possibly have predicted
  • Lucas Digne has laughed in the face of Newcastle‘s offer but has eyebrows raised at West Ham‘s interest and the prospect of a much-needed salary bump from £100k a weeek
  • Man United have a “dressing room crisis” and up to 11 players are unhappy and want to leave. We can only assume they’ve all just woken up from a curse, like King Theoden in that scene in Lord of the Rings, and looked around the squad and realised how sh*t they have all become over the last few years
