Specifically, Liverpool announced that they have completed the signing of Luis Diaz from FC Porto. This player puts pen to paper on a contract that expires in June 2027. Notably, this deal costs Liverpool about 50 million pounds.
Diaz will be in Merseyside after completing his international mission with the Colombian national team, in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in the South America region.
Diaz arrived at Anfield after two and a half seasons with FC Porto. In Portugal, the 25-year-old striker has made 125 appearances and scored 41 goals. Moving to Liverpool, Diaz will wear the number 23 shirt.
Diaz has faced The Kop twice in the Champions League group stage this season. Up to now, Diaz has 31 caps for Colombia, with 7 goals for the national team.
The presence of Diaz promises to increase the attack power for Liverpool. For a long time, coach Jurgen Klopp had a plan to change his attack when the trio of Roberto Firmino – Mohamed Salah – Sadio Mane no longer showed the necessary coordination.
Certainly with Diaz, Liverpool will be a big challenge for Man City in the race to win the Premier League this season.
