The Reds signed the winger from Porto for a transfer fee of €45 million back in January. Diaz has had a reasonable start to life at Anfield.
Dixon is confident that the early signs suggest that Diaz will be a top player for Liverpool.

Anfield Watch Verdict
We completely agree with Dixon. Diaz appears to be a very good player.
To be fair, it was obvious that the club had signed a good player. Diaz scored 41 goals and secured 19 assists in 125 matches for Porto.
It is common knowledge that surrounding yourself with better players ultimately improves your performance.
Also, Liverpool do possess an ageing forward line. The likes of Roberto Firmino, Salah and Mane are all aged above 29. The aforementioned players can't represent the club forever.
As we have already pointed out, Diaz is reasonably young. The forward is arguably a long-term replacement for one of Firmino, Salah or Mane.
But, Diaz can sit back and learn from the current attacking players at the club for the time being. We look forward to seeing how he develops over time.
