Diaz shirt number, Lavia claim, Doku interest – Latest Liverpool FC News

Monday’s roundup includes an iconic shirt number change for Luis Diaz, along with the latest on Liverpool transfers both in and out of Anfield.


Diaz takes an iconic shirt number

With the departures of James Milner, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino, three of Liverpool’s most iconic shirt numbers became free.

The No. 7, No. 8 and No. 9 are all associated with some of the best and most successful players in the club’s history – and Milner’s old shirt has now been taken.

Diaz has not taken long to swap his No. 23 for the No. 7, with the club announcing the news on Monday morning.

Those who have already purchased a new Liverpool home shirt with ‘Luis Diaz 23′ on the back will be personally reimbursed by the winger – full details on that here.

Who is likely to follow?

There have been whispers of Darwin Nunez taking the No. 9, while Alexis Mac Allister declined the No. 8 upon his arrival.
