Liverpool Are Open To Selling Luiz Diaz To Bring In This Spanish Super Star Who Managed A Staggering Eight Goals And 19 Assist Last Season In All Competition. Liverpool Makes Move, Fantastic Williams To Replace Diaz.

With the transfer window in full swing, Liverpool have reportedly engaged in discussions to sign a Euro 2024 star with a release clause of just £43 million, who is highly sought after in the Premier League.


Liverpool’s Transfer Strategy


The Reds have introduced Arne Slot over a month after his appointment was made official. Slot, eager to start his tenure on a strong note, has returned from his holiday to focus on the transfer window. Along with new sporting director Richard Hughes, Slot is working on bolstering the squad. Liverpool’s transfer activities are expected to commence soon.


Monitoring Euro 2024


Liverpool is closely monitoring Euro 2024 for potential signings, with Italy’s Riccardo Calafiori already on their radar. Now, reports indicate talks to acquire one of Spain’s emerging talents.

According to Graeme Bailey for HITC, Liverpool has held discussions to sign Nico Williams from Athletic Bilbao this summer. They face competition from Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Aston Villa, who are also interested in the winger, despite his dream move to Barcelona. The 21-year-old’s release clause of £43 million is considered a bargain, given his impressive performance last season, where he scored eight goals and provided 19 assists in all competitions.


Wage Demands a Potential Obstacle


However, Williams’ reported wage demands of over £300,000 per week could be a stumbling block. This figure would make him Liverpool’s second-highest earner, just below Mohamed Salah, despite his young age. It remains to be seen if Liverpool can navigate this financial hurdle.


Potential Impact on Liverpool’s Squad


Williams’ arrival could significantly impact the current squad, particularly Luis Diaz. At 28, Diaz’s future at Liverpool is uncertain, and he could quickly lose his spot if Williams joins. While Diaz has shown energy and flair, his lack of goal-scoring consistency has raised concerns about his effectiveness. In contrast, Williams has demonstrated a strong end product, which Diaz has lacked.

Comparing Williams and Diaz


Last season’s league stats highlight the differences between the two players:


Nico Williams:5 goals, 11 assists, 6 expected goals, 86 take-ons completed


Luis Diaz: 8 goals, 5 assists, 11.9 expected goals, 67 take-ons completed


Williams’ ability to maintain his take-on success while providing 11 assists in La Liga is particularly impressive. Diaz, despite his take-on success, significantly underperformed his expected goals and managed only five assists.

Described as “fantastic” by Football Talent Scout’s Jacek Kulig, Williams could be one of the best bargains of the summer transfer window at just £43 million if Liverpool can meet his wage demands.
