Liverpool have reportedly gazumped Premier League rivals Tottenham in the race to sign Porto’s Luis Diaz, with club and player said to have already reached a verbal agreement.
According to Goal journalist, Neil Jones, on Twitter, talks have gone a step further, with the Reds having arranged for a medical to take place in Argentina at the weekend whilst the Colombian is on international duty.

As such, it would seem that a move for the 25-year-old is all but signed, sealed and delivered, with the Merseysiders demonstrating a rare show of intent in the January transfer window.

The prospect of us being able to enjoy the attacking talents of Mo Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino and, potentially, Diaz, is a mouthwatering prospect.
This is particularly given the case that the Colombian has already amassed an impressive 16 goals and six assists in 28 games this season (across all competitions).
With us looking to compete on all fronts this term, it’s an exciting potential addition that could boost Jurgen Klopp’s men’s chances of attaining major silverware.

I doubt we ‘gazumped’ anyone more to do with us being a more attractive club. An excellent addition to our forward line and at a good price. Julian Ward off to a good start.
