Multiple local reliable journalists confirm Liverpool are trying to ‘finalise’ deal to ‘sign’ £37.5 m forward

Paul Joyce, Neil Jones and David Maddock confirm that Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Luis Diaz from Porto.

The Colombian has been heavily linked with the Reds for several months but the links were wisely dismissed by supporters as transfer fodder but now that journalists such as Joyce and the like have added their name to the chorus, fans can sing for joy.

The Porto star has an €80million (£66m) release clause in his contract and so it remains to be see what kind of agreement can be reached between Liverpool and the Portuguese club but the exciting news is that it looks as though the groundwork has been laid for the 25-year-old to move to Anfield this month.

Luis Diaz

Paul Joyce writes that Liverpool are ‘looking to finalise a £37.5 million deal to sign Luis Diaz after hijacking Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in the Porto winger.’

Maddock writes: ‘Liverpool closing in on spectacular transfer window coup for Luis Diaz.

‘Understood deal v.close with fee of £37.5m with £12.5m in add ons. Reds beat Manchester United and Spurs to signing of Porto winger – seen as perfect fit for Liverpool front line.’
