A key update regarding Luis Diaz‘s Liverpool future has emerged, as well as Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s injury situation. Here we round up Thursday’s LFC news.

 

Diaz to PSG a no-go

Luis Diaz may be contracted at Liverpool until the summer of 2027, but that hasn’t stopped him from being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

That rumour has swiftly been shot down, however, with Fabrizio Romano taking to Twitter to claim that the Reds “have not been approached” by the Ligue 1 side, adding that they are “not showing any desire” to sell him.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports have poured more cold water on the story, saying PSG aren’t interested in making a move for Diaz at the end of the season, not seeing him as the profile of player they are looking for to replace Kylian Mbappe.

At 27, the Colombian could be coming into his prime, so Liverpool selling him now would make little sense.
