Bakayoko ‘interest’, Diaz update & Schmadtke’s new job – Latest Liverpool FC News


Liverpool have been linked with two wingers and a Bayern Munich stalwart as silly season begins early, while there was a positive Luis Diaz update on Tuesday.


Key Diaz injury update

Jurgen Klopp admitted fears over an injury for Diaz against Man United, but concerns over a serious problem have been allayed.

The Mirror‘s Ryan Taylor explained that the injury is “nothing serious”, with the Colombian doing recovery work on international duty before joining training on Tuesday.

In some ways, the hope is that Diaz is fit for Colombia’s clash with Spain at West Ham‘s London Stadium on Friday, although any risks simply have to be avoided.

Klopp surely won’t allow the 27-year-old to play if he isn’t 100 percent fit, with the visit of Brighton in the Premier League looming on March 31.
