Liverpool has jumped ahead of Tottenham in the battle to recruit Porto’s Luis Diaz; Spurs were ready to offer up to £46 million for Diaz but he favors a transfer to Liverpool. Diaz was a goal for Liverpool in the summer, but Spurs’ interest has hastened their plans.
Liverpool are in pole position to acquire Luis Diaz following a late £45 million bid for the Porto winger, who wants to join Jurgen Klopp’s side over Tottenham.
Liverpool is rumored to be proposing an initial £37 million. With bonuses contained in the agreement that will be activated only if he is a major success at Anfield. A big success at Anfield.
Tottenham had been in discussions with Porto about his this week, with the Premier League club offering to pay up to £46 million, with £37.6 million upfront and £8.4 million in performance-related add-ons.
There was confidence from both sides that a deal could be reached before Liverpool reignited their interest.
