Rumours of Luis Diaz jumping ship from Liverpool have risen in recent weeks, but journalist James Pearce has offered an all-important update on the Colombian superstar’s future.
Pearce provided the opportunity for a Q&A session and included all answers in his Liverpool mailbag.
One supporter pondered on the question of whether Diaz could be sold to free up some cash for Liverpool’s hunt for Bellingham.
“Even if Liverpool get Bellingham, they will still need at least one other midfielder and Mount is a serious option if Chelsea look set to sell him this summer,” Pearce explained.
“Whatever happens, Diaz is going nowhere. He’s a big part of Liverpool’s future.”
In fairness, Diaz should be one of the last to be put for sale at this moment of time, with the Colombian an integral part of Klopp’s ideas.
If Liverpool were to put Diaz on the market for potential buyers to come sniffing, the fee would be of a healthy amount, with the 26-year-old hailed as one of Liverpool’s most valuable players.
The Reds have endured the majority of this campaign without their flying Colombian, as he has only featured in eight league games.
Formerly of Porto, Diaz looks primed to return to action in Liverpool’s first game back from the international break against Manchester City.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and in the eyes of Jurgen Klopp, that is certainly the case.
