Liverpool on verge of landing Colombian star Luis Diaz
Just when it looked like Tottenham was about to land Luis Diaz this transfer window, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have other ideas. That's because the Reds are about to land the Porto winger? Things are looking that way.
According to the one and only Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool is in the final stages of negotiations with Porto for Diaz. The speedster is currently with the Colombian national team getting ready to take on Peru on Friday, but he could have a new club soon. Oh, the drama.

About a week ago, it really looked like Diaz was going to be headed to Spurs. He's long been looking for a move to the English Premier League. Now, though, Liverpool is the club that wants to make those dreams come true.
Diaz has really been nothing short of sensational during the World Cup qualifiers for Colombia. He was also fantastic in the Copa America over the summer, opening up the eyes of scouts across the world.
He's continued his strong play with Porto, which has led to so much interest during the January Transfer Window. With the deadline coming next week, teams are in a race against time to get their deals over the finish line.
For Liverpool, landing Diaz would surely be quite the move. This team is loaded with talent and adding a player of his caliber would send quite the message to the rest of the EPL, of course including the other Big 6 clubs. Stay tuned to see if Diaz will end up donning red in the near future. This would be a massive move.
