New Liverpool head coach, Arne Slot will not stand in the way of Luis Diaz's move to Barcelona Transfers

Interest from Saudi Arabia in Liverpool ace Egyptian international Mohamed Salah is well known. A huge offer was received last summer, and it is said that they could present an offer this summer, but are also said to be aiming to time the expiry of his contract next year.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are relentlessly exploring the possibility of acquiring Colombian international Luis Diaz, who likewise anchors Liverpool’s front line. Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping a close eye on the 27-year-old winger, but new coach Arne Slot will not move to block his move, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported.

The player, who has been watching Barcelona since he was a child, would be open to a move to Spain if the opportunity arose, but at the moment he is happy at Anfield and has no plans to apply for a move in the summer transfer window.

In addition, it is unlikely that the Spanish club, who are in a poor financial position, will be able to pay Liverpool the fee they are demanding and it is unlikely that this report will become a reality.

Also, letting go of a player who has been injury-free on the left wing all season would be a major blow and would not be approved not only by the manager but also by the reinforcements department.

Former Portuguese midfielder Deco, who is the club’s sporting director, is also believed to be a big fan of the Colombian winger and is keen to bring him in with three years left on his Liverpool contract.

If Barcelona were to release a large number of their key players and offer a hefty transfer fee, we don’t know, but for now it is only a rumour, and manager Slot would not easily sell his main attacker, and would prefer to treat it as a gossip story.
