READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Holding a perceived market value of £36million (Transfermarkt), Liverpool look to have acquired a bargain in the flying winger.
Already a serial trophy winner from spells in Colombia and Portugal, Diaz would appear to be on an upwards personal trajectory in terms of statistics.
Boasting an array of exciting attributes, it’s little surprise that Kopites are delighted to see the possibility of Diaz becoming a Red.
