“Liverpool are more than considering Luis Diaz. I think they’re expecting to sign him now, which would be an amazing coup. They were heavily linked with him for a number of weeks. He played against them twice this season, home and away for Porto in the Champions League this season,” he said.
“There was plenty of interest and Tottenham were pushing hard for a deal but I understand that he wants to join Liverpool. Sources are telling me that the clubs are close to agreeing a fee in the region of €60m including add-ons.
“The 25-year-old is one of the most exciting wingers in European football and if they can get this over the line, there will be celebrations at Anfield and among Liverpool fans all over the world.”
