Time to assess whether to extend Luis Diaz's contract or sell him to PSG...Liverpool could demand £75m Transfers

Liverpool’s transition from Jurgen Klopp to a new manager may also see a reshuffling of the attacking line-up. Egypt international Mohamed Salah, who will turn 32 this June, is undergoing a generational change due to his age, and the Saudis continue to be keen on him.

In addition, Colombian international Luis Diaz was frequently linked with a move. Fabrizio Romano posted a negative opinion on the reports, but the possibility of a Liverpool exit is smouldering. 

According to The Telegraph, the 27-year-old winger, who joined from Porto in January 2022, and Liverpool will have to decide in the transfer market this summer whether to sign a contract extension or sell him to Paris Saint-Germain or another team.

In addition to PSG, there is also reported interest from Barcelona, but the Spanish club are struggling financially in the kitchen and France is seen as the most likely destination, although the club are also reportedly interested. Immediately after joining the club, he linked up brilliantly with the attackers, including the front three, and scored a number of goals and assisted a number of goals.

His dribbling from the left side of the field has been attractive and has troubled many right-backs he has faced. He has scored double-digit goals in all competitions this season, but has also missed many crucial opportunities.

Nevertheless, he has continued to appear regularly on the pitch despite a string of injuries. In a club aiming to win the Premier League in the German’s final season in charge, the player’s attacking prowess is vital towards the final stages of the season and he is expected to continue at Anfield in the coming season and beyond.

At the moment, he remains under contract until June 2027, and discussions should take place on whether to extend it. However, before that, contract negotiations remain with Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil Van Dijk, which will take priority.

The 27-year-old winger, whose parents were kidnapped in their home country last year, seems destined to stay at Anfield, but will he face unexpected consequences…?
