After the draw with Chelsea last weekend, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita have returned to the national team to prepare for AFCON 2021. The absence of Salah and Mane leaves many worries, because they are “the source of life”. on the Liverpool attack for many years now.
The media predicts that coach Jurgen Klopp will find a solution to deal with the transfer market. Luis Diaz is said to be the target that Klopp wants to recruit. The Colombian star has a knack for breaking through with speed, skillful technique and finishing the opponent with powerful shots with his right foot.
Diaz is the mainstay of FC Porto. To own the 24-year-old striker, Liverpool will have to activate his £67m release clause. However, according to The Athletic, Diaz is not in the recruitment plan of The Kop this January.
Exploding blockbusters at the present time has many potential risks. At first, Diaz will not have much time to get used to, there is no guarantee that this player will integrate into the play of The Kop, as well as the fierceness of the Premier League.
Secondly, Salah and Mane are only absent for about a month. When this duo comes back, leaving an expensive signing like Diaz as a substitute is a waste.
