Diaz was enjoying an excellent season with Porto, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists in the first half of the season.

“Liverpool signed Colombian attacker Luis Diaz who has been excellent at FC Porto in both the Portuguese League and Champions League, and I think the club’s decision to sign him now is intended to offer Jurgen Klopp more options in the attack,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

He added “With the Colombian in the squad, Klopp can manage his most used players like Sadio Mane and Mo Salah which will contribute to keeping them at their peak form when the time for big Premier League and Champions League games arrive.
