Luis Diaz price, Konate debate & Euros defender linked – Latest LFC News

There was an update on the Luis Diaz transfer rumours, with a local journalist naming a price, while Ibrahima Konate caused debate among fans.


Luis Diaz price

Amid speculation about Diaz’s future, the Liverpool Echo‘s Ian Doyle has provided an update of sorts on the Colombian.

He claims that Liverpool “have had no contact from Barcelona” for the winger, but that the Reds value him “in the region of £75 million.”

This comes after Colombian journalist Breinner Arteta Canizares claimed that a meeting is scheduled between Diaz’s representatives and “emissaries from a Spanish club” in the United States either “this week or next.”

Thankfully, Liverpool aren’t thought to have any intentions of selling Diaz this summer and the No. 7 himself says that he is “very happy” at the club.

It is unlikely anything comes of these transfer rumours, but if he were to move on, Liverpool would surely act by bringing in another forward this window.
