Liverpool have made a late move to sign Luis Diaz from Porto, with Tottenham currently in talks with the winger.
Liverpool had planned a summer move to sign the Colombia international, but are now seemingly accelerating that interest following an offer from Spurs this week.
Jurgen Klopp is keen to add to his forward options and Sky Sports are reporting that the Reds have tabled an offer of an initial £37m, though the fee could rise to around £45m with performance-related add-ons.
Tottenham remain in talks for the 25-year-old and have tabled a similar bid, with the two Premier League sides competing for the signing of a talent who starred during last summer’s Copa America.
Diaz scored four goals to finish as the competition’s joint-leading scorer alongside Lionel Messi and has impressed this season with 14 goals from just 18 league appearances for Porto.
Porto have been demanding a fee of around €60m for Diaz, but both Spurs and Liverpool will now look to find a compromise in the closing stages of the window.
Spurs are set to be active in the final days before Monday’s deadline with the North Londoners keen to sign a midfielder and winger. Antonio Conte’s side have already seen a move for Adama Traore fail to materialise this week with the Wolves winger set to sign for Barcelona on loan.
