Is it Christmas? It certainly feels like it as we woke up to the news this morning that Porto and Liverpool are in advanced talks over a £37million deal for Luis Diaz.
Paul Joyce, the most reliable source for breaking Liverpool news, reported that the club is working on finalising a deal to bring the Colombian to Anfield after hijacking Tottenham’s interest.
Naturally, what was a slow Twitter timeline exploded into life as fans checked to see if the tweet was genuine or if a cheeky fan had made a fake account to troll fellow users but the news is real and things are moving rapidly.
Liverpool are getting a fantastic player. Diaz is capable of scoring unbelievable goals. From overhead kicks in Copa America against Brazil to solo goals in Liga Nos to long-range strikes like in the video embedded below, the Kop is set to be entertained.
