Liverpool FC is still looking for reinforcements for the currently sparse midfield. According to Matheus Leal, a journalist on the Brazilian side torcedoresthe Reds have now made an opening offer of the equivalent of 23 million euros for Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa.
On Tuesday, Jürgen Klopp explained that the market was being explored and could become active again. But only if “the right” player is available. Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham is the top transfer target for the Reds. Sports director Sebastian Kehl recently ruled out a departure for the top talent this summer.
With Diaz, a new name would now be added to the list of midfielders recently circulating around Liverpool FC. The 24-year-old is one of the regulars at Aston Villa and made 35 competitive appearances and helped five goals last season. The international has already made nine appearances for Brazil. He is mainly used in the sixth position and is considered a strong player with strong tackles, but who can also determine the rhythm of the game.
Exactly the profile Liverpool are currently looking for. Luiz moved from Brazil to Manchester City in 2017 and from there to Aston Villa in 2019 for almost 17 million euros. His contract there runs until 2023. A sale would therefore make sense for the Villans from an economic perspective.
