With Liverpool having sent a medical team to Argentina to get a medical over the line for impending signing, Luis Diaz, the Reds’ attacking options going forward are looking far from poor for the remainder of the campaign.

Having caught a whiff of the reports (how could you miss them?), former centre-half, Jamie Carragher, responded to a tagged tweet from the club wishing him a happy birthday by pleading for his old side to get the deal done and dusted as a late present.

With a medical booked for the weekend, it seems unlikely for it all to be signed, sealed and delivered by tonight.
