‘He has agreed personal terms to join immediately’ – Fabrizio Romano claims Liverpool are ‘preparing the paperwork’ to sign the top target ‘as soon as possible’

Liverpool is said to be close to completing the move for Porto striker Luis Diaz. The Red Devils have made no secret of their desire to sign a top-quality striker in recent months and could finally be set up to support their front line.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 25-year-old striker “has agreed on personal terms” to join the Merseyside club immediately. Jurgen Klopp’s side and Porto are said to be finalizing the paperwork for Diaz, who will sign a five-year deal with the Premier League giants. Follow The AthleticLiverpool will pay €45 million plus €15 million in allowances to Porto.

Luis Diaz joined Porto in the summer of 2019 and immediately became a key member of the club’s starting XI. The Colombia international has been explosive this season, scoring 14 goals in 18 Primeira Liga games for the club.

Liverpool are currently in bad form. The Merseyside club has only won 2 of the last 5 matches in the Premier League. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side have won their last two matches and will be looking to maintain their form after the ongoing international break.

The Red Devils are currently second on the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Manchester City, but with a match in hand.

Liverpool are often said to rely too much on the scoring ability of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota. The potential arrival of Luis Diaz from Porto would add some much needed depth to the Reds’ forwards and provide extra dimension to their attack.

Luis Diaz’s pace, dribbling and scoring will make him an asset to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Liverpool may be preparing for the potential departure of Divock Origi. Despite being a key member of the team over the years, Origi is said to have grown frustrated by a lack of game time. The 26-year-old has only made 10 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, scoring five goals.

The Belgian is said to be keen to leave the Red Devils and join a club where he will become a regular. He is eager to boost Roberto Martinez’s Belgium squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Based on The Athletic, Divock Origi has attracted interest from Newcastle United and Atalanta. Takumi Minamino is also said to be leaving Liverpool. Leeds United and AS Monaco are said to be interested in the Japan international.

Minamino joined the Reds from RB Salzburg in December 2019. After struggling to get into the starting XI, Minamino joined Southampton on loan for the second half of the 2020-21 campaign. He returned to the Merseyside giants last summer and decided to stay and fight for his place in the starting lineup.

Minamino has had a more prominent role at Anfield this season. He has scored six goals in 18 appearances for the club in all competitions. However, the potential arrival of Luis Diaz from Porto could cut Origi and Minamino’s game time. As a result, the duo could be looking to leave the club.
