Luis Diaz Agrees To Join Liverpool
Previous reports have claimed that Diaz rejected Tottenham's offer because he thought he was 'on another level' and wanted to wait for a club that could match his talent.
That club is no other than Liverpool Football Club.
According to reports, Diaz has now agreed to a Liverpool contract that would see him stay with the club through 2026.
Football journalist and transfer insider Nicolo Schira has claimed that Liverpool have now overtaken Tottenham in the race for Luis Diaz and have even agreed to a contract with him until 2026.
On top of that, other reports claim that Liverpool have also agreed to a transfer fee for the Colombian national.
