Liverpool Luis Diaz transfer stance REVEALED as Barcelona and PSG remain alert

Liverpool are prepared to offload Luis Diaz this summer amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. 

That’s according to a report in Football Insider, which claims a new Reds’ approach for Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon could spell the end for Diaz at Anfield. 

The 27-year-old joined Liverpool from Porto back in January 2022 for around £37.5 million, signing a five-year contract which extends to 2027

Surprisingly, the club have NOT yet renewed that deal, in contrast to some of their other top stars, and it means there is uncertainty over the Colombian’s squad status this summer. 

Barcelona were at the front of the queue for the wide man but are finding it difficult to put together a deal. The Catalans are unlikely to make any signings this summer unless significant money is recouped on outgoings. 

PSG, meanwhile, remain in the market for a left winger to replace the Real Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe. 

Marcus Rashford, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Crysencio Summerville are among the other names mentioned for a potential Parc des Princes arrival this summer. 

Diaz doubts amid Gordon interest

Diaz’s position in the team has been recently placed under threat by Liverpool’s approaches for Gordon. The former academy player, who joined Newcastle from Everton for £45m in January 2023, is reported to have had his head turned by Anfield interest

Newcastle are said to be seeking a total package of around £100m for the England man, and it’s not yet known whether the Reds are prepared to go that high. 

Initial talks over a move broke down when Newcastle insisted on putting Jarell Quansah in the deal, something that Liverpool transfer chiefs were not prepared to consider. 

Cody Gakpo’s form on the left wing for The Netherlands at Euro 2024, meanwhile, has demonstrated his potential in the position having been shifted around by Jurgen Klopp last season. 

Diaz has played 98 times for Liverpool, scoring 24 goals and adding 13 assists. Throughout his time in England he has won the FA Cup and the EFL Cup on two occasions.
