Liverpool have been heavily linked with Luis Diaz but who is the Colombian attacker and what may he add to Jurgen Klopp’s side?

The 24-year-old first made his name in the Colombian leagues with Barranquilla and Junior before moving to Porto in 2019, after the Portuguese side had batted off interest from Zenit St Petersburg.
