This morning, when all Portuguese newspapers were reporting Tottenham Hotspur’s bid for Porto star Luis Diaz, they also claimed that Liverpool could still be a strong possibility for the player’s future.
A move to the Reds has been described as more ‘seductive’ for the 25-year-old, who’d like to continue to play in the Champions League for the coming years.
Now as journalist Bruno Andrade features an update on Diaz’s situation, he points out that an Anfield move is indeed on the cards for him.
It’s claimed that the winger is waiting for an offer from a ‘giant’ of English football, as he has no hurry to leave for a club like Tottenham.
According to the report, Diaz ‘knows he’s on Liverpool’s priority target list for June’, and Regarding the transfer’s price, even though Spurs reportedly bid €45m, it’s claimed that Porto are currently talking of €80m, which is the price for his release clause.
Still, he could be cheaper in the future, because the Dragons could ‘accept to sit and negotiate’ in the summer’.
So that’s definitely another advantage for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are apparently waiting a little until they make their move.
