A number of Liverpool supporters are hugely excited after the Reds were linked with a January move for in-form Porto attacker Luis Diaz.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are in superb form at the moment, responding brilliantly to the defeat at West Ham by picking up consecutive wins against Arsenal, Porto and Southampton.
Liverpool seem to have clicked into gear at just the right time, with a fascinating Premier League title race with Chelsea and Manchester City starting to take shape.
The Reds will almost certainly have to make do without star attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for a chunk of January, though, due to their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 24-year-old has scored 10 times in 12 Primeira Liga appearances this season and has come up against Liverpool in the Champions League. He gave a decent account of himself at Anfield last week, with two key passes and three successful dribbles in his team’s 2-0 defeat.
The Colombian has struck 10 goals in 12 league games for Porto in the current campaign, also netting twice in Europe (Transfermarkt), and he is the team’s highest-ranking performer according to WhoScored.
Liverpool fans love Diaz claim
These Reds fans on Twitter reacted positively to the links with Diaz, with one Kopite proclaiming him as a “baller”.
“I beg for him to sign“
“If this is true this would be great. He’s a class player and would be good to have during AFCON when Mo and Mane are gone, he’ll definitely put in a shift and will keep us on winning ways surely“
“Don’t do that… don’t give me hope“
“Please please. Baller“
