€60million Luis Diaz hugs Jurgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders after private jet lands in Liverpool

Luis Diaz has arrived in the United Kingdom five days after signing for Liverpool after his work permit came through.

The Colombian joined Liverpool for €60million but due to Brexit regulations, non-EU players have to be granted work permits before they’re able to enter the UK.

Diaz has now arrived in the UK with a welcome from Jurgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders as the hard work starts after his move to the Reds.

He’s pretty much a certainty to miss the FA Cup fourth-round tie with Cardiff City but he is in contention to make his debut against Leicester City when the Foxes visit Anfield on the 10th of February assuming there have been no visa complications.

It’s going to be interesting to see who starts against Brendan Rodgers’ side as Sadio Mane will be returning to England soon off the back of an intense AFCON tournament and it would be surprising if he was thrown straight back into the mix.

Part of the Senegal attacker’s issues this season and last has been the over-reliance on his pace and energy to create attacking chances on the left flank and so it would border on negligence if he was introduced straight away without a small break at the very least.

He has looked jaded and fatigued which made him look lethargic before AFCON while his lack of energy also contributed to tired and rushed decision-making such as his hasty finish against Leicester City which went over the bar.
