Who is Luis Diaz? ‘Indomitable dragon’ already loved by Liverpool star before transfer

Manchester United had reported interest, while Tottenham hoped to complete a move in the coming days, only to be eyed by title-chasing Liverpool.

The winger has become one of the hottest properties in world football after a stunning performance for his national side at the Copa America last summer.

Diaz finished top scorer with Lionel Messi, including a spectacular stoppage-time winner in the third-place play-off against Peru.

The 25-year-old is now set to compete with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota for one of the three starting spots in Liverpool’s attack.

And with the contracts of Mane, Salah and Firmino expiring in 2023, it is expected that Liverpool’s front line could evolve in the coming months, having already seen Jota effectively replace Firmino in the central role.

Diaz’s arrival is sure to give the Reds a huge boost as they chase an unprecedented four-fold, despite their chances of winning the Premier League title looking slim.

It will also galvanize a fan base, some of whom had grown frustrated with the lack of investment from Fenway Sports Group owners in recent windows.

That excitement was mirrored by a fan who quickly edited Diaz’s page to signal his impending arrival.

The rogue fixture was quickly called off, but Reds fans probably won’t have to wait long for it to be officially confirmed, with hopes a deal could be done imminently.

Reports in Portugal had suggested Porto had received higher offers from other clubs, but Diaz’s insistence he would like to join Liverpool meant a deal could be done.
