According to numerous sources, Liverpool are eyeing up the massive transfer for FC Porto's star Luis Diaz and are leading the race ahead of newly rich Newcastle United.

Luis Diaz

The Columbian international has taken the Champions League by storm this year with his performances and has done very well in Liga Bwin in Portugal. 

So far this season Diaz has 14 goals and five assists in 24 total appearances.

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp would no doubt be able to take him to the next level if he were to make a transfer to the Anfield side.
