Jurgen Klopp gave a hint on Liverpool’s team for Sparta Prague as his team trained in front of the media.

 

Diaz linked to PSG

For Liverpool, only Virgil van Dijk has played more minutes than Luis Diaz this season. Though he may sometimes frustrate, he is a key player for Liverpool under Klopp.

Over the last few days, he has been linked, albeit loosely, to a move away in the summer. Colombian newspaper El Heraldo said that Diaz’s agent met with the Barcelona president, Joan Laporta.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano wrote for Caught Offside that “Diaz’s full focus is on Liverpool.”

He added: “I don’t think it’s possible for Barcelona to go and pay the kind of crazy fee that would be required for Diaz.”

Paris Saint-Germain have also now been linked to the Colombian. Various outlets, though none that are highly reliable, have reported that the French giants want Diaz to replace Kylian Mbappe.

It is unlikely that Liverpool would sell Diaz this summer or that he would make a strong push to move away. However, it is possible that his agent or someone behind the scenes is putting out feelers to make Liverpool offer a pay rise.
