Is it true that Diaz represents have met Barcelona and they could buy him? I thought they was skinny?

Be a shame if he goes as he’s exciting to watch and far from our worst player. But if he wants the move (and his Dad has certainly made out he does) then he is probably quite easily replaceable. We’ll get a big chunk of cash for him, and there is an embarrassment of riches right now in terms of top left wingers. If he goes then Kvaratskhelia is who I think we should go for but there is plenty of options out there so the club will have plenty of choice.

In my opinion he can be exciting but equally frustrating in that there’s plenty of energy and endeavour but lacking in end product. Sounds like he’s been pushing for a move to Barcelona for a while now. What will be will be.

Diaz has been very good this season but with his miss rate I think the right price move him on.

If they can find someone daft enough to take Raphinha off their hands then I can see it happening. I think we’d probably look at Summerville given that Leeds haven’t gone up.

Rumours now saying Summerville and Archie Gray.
I’m not convinced Summerville is good enough and Gray is too young and in my opinion a player we don’t need.
What’s everyone’s thoughts on the duo?
And if possible Ed1 what’s your views on this being realistic and your opinion on how good these two are.

{Ed001's Note - both are very raw and neither look quite ready for a team challenging for the title to me.}

I assume he has told Edwards and Slot he wants to leave and they gave him permission to talk to Barcelona? Or is this just Barcelona trying to spread enough of a rumour that it turns Diaz head. I don't like this South American attitude that Barcelona is the destination and Lfc is a step on the way. p. poor to say i want to play for Barcelona when you play for Liverpool.

Our transfer targets cannot be guys like Gray and Yoro. We need to use our own academy to pad out the squad, and spend money on players ready to improve our starting XI.

Watched Leeds 2day and thought summerville and gray both v poor. Neither looked near ready for jump to a champ league team. Obviously it couldve been just bad day for the pair and the team but to replace diaz with summerville at present time is putting us backwards not forwards.

Can Barcelona even afford him ED002. I imagine he'll be 60 - 70 million.

Can they afford that?
Have I overvalued him?

Personally I'd be disappointed to see him go because if he adds better end product he is going to be one of the best on the planet. Definitely a keeper in my book.

{Ed002's Note - Sure - their issue is largely wages. They meed to make space.}

10.) 26 May 2024
26 May 2024 22:04:58
Definitely a player I think we can do without, lots of fancy skill but not enough end product and at an age when that's unlikely to improve regardless of what Davey Sulls thinks. Take Barcelona for as much as possible and spend it well, Coutinho style!

Diaz is the one we should build our frontline around. Always looks better when getting lots of the ball. I’d move every forward we have on before Diaz given form and injury records.

{Ed025's Note - really Brummy?, bit of a headless chicken for me mate, fast and has a bit of skill but i get the feeling he does not know what he is actually doing most of the time...but maybe thats just me..

Summerville isn’t an upgrade he’s bang average at best and was awful today.
Just hope Arni doesn’t bring in dross like ten pints Eric has done down the east lancs.

Can anybody answer the OP’s original question?

{Ed001's Note - his reps have met Barca yes. No idea if they could or would want to buy him, but he does want to go there. }

Ed, tbh he do look good when he first coming to the club and when Mane move to the CF position. Don't really know what happen to that player. Maybe it was injury that happen to him after that. Now he do look like he can dribble past few players and then doesn't know what to do after that.

I don't know if anyone not noticing it, but his dad has been yapping a lot about wanting his son to play at Barca. Diaz has been quiet about it, but his dad has talk about Barcelona a lot.

16.) 27 May 2024

mfahmee2 I think it's you not noticing it, his dad has been banging on for ages about playing for Barca, the Columbians even kidnapped him to shut him up because he was doing everybody's head in.

MK Scouser-It seems to me that LFC want to position themselves similarly to a club like Dortmund or RBL, so that we can attract the very best future prospects like Bellingham.

We bought Nallo but maybe Yoro is a few steps further down the line and is ready for men's football? He could be worth 50m after only 1 season at a bigger club, but again, Real are the first choice of so many young players. Perhaps though, we could compete with them if we offer a faster route to the first team and trophies.

Who knows what background and possible struggles a player has endured, and why they may have the dreams that they do.
If Diaz and family want to go, then make sure Barcelona are fleeced for as much as possible.

We need more clinical/ consistent goal scorers next season, and I personally would be glad to see an additional player bought in to bed in prior to Mo's possible departure in a year's time.
Ed's any ideas if FSG will allow Mo to leave on a free, and how does a club manage/ play such situations when a player wants to run a contract down whilst the club wants to get a fee?

20.) 27 May 2024

Get rid of him. Lots of skill like Ed says but zilch end product. Finds himself in great positions constantly and squanders a lot of opportunities. He’s light years away from the quality of Manè too. Summerville isn’t an upgrade, but would be a good addition to the squad. A quality replacement would need to be factored in. Who that is I don’t know.

Ed1, do you think that if Diaz is to be sold, just use Gakpo to replace him? he's been very good in last few matches on the left. I just want to see what he can do if he is allow to play on the left on full time instead of moving around without a fix position.

{Ed001's Note - I would play Gakpo on the left anyway, rather than Diaz. More end product. }

Looking at all the reports today after Leeds failed to gain promotion, it seems Summerville is very much the favourite to sign for us if Diaz does go. Apparently Slot is a big fan. At least we have Gakpo and Jota who can play LW in case there is a long bedding in period.

{Ed002's Note - Crysencio Summerville (RW/LW) Leeds have no interest in selling but his agent is looking for a step up and speaking with clubs about him - he has certainly approached Chelsea and Spurs and I suspect others. Bayer Leverkusen have spoken directly with Leeds. Agent is close to Aston Villa and the City Football Group. Any move will likely depend on promotion being gained or not and now a move seems like even though Leeds will look for a new contract. I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach yet but I understand Slot is a fan of the youngster from advice given to him by Sipke Hulshoff - who knows him well. If he were to replace Salah, there has to be an element of risk but he may become first choice.}

Ed001 I agree. Their stats are very similar TBH in terms of games/ goals. Stick with Gakpo on the left, Nunez and Jota can also play there, but Gakpo can also do a job upfront if needed soore versatile than Diaz. If Diaz is agitating for a move then get top dollar and buy that new top class DM that we really need.

Thank for amazing responses guys I don’t think we need to buy a replacement we have gakpo who is much better and is natural in the tactic of left winger. We can bring back carvalho and we have lots of cover then because jones jota and Nunez can play position carvalho has scored over ten games I recall which is very good returns on record so we can take money and update the defensive side of the situation.

“we have gakpo who is much better”

Is he “much better”?

Gakpo has blown very hot and cold but did finish the season well to be fair to him. Jury still out for me on Gakpo personally

I think overall Diaz had a better season and with a slice more luck would have had at least 5 more goals (hit the woodwork a lot) .

26.) 27 May 2024
27 May 2024 12:52:20
Yes navy I do believe gakpo to be better he has been playing at striker not his natural ability he likes left winger and is when he plays his best ball, carvalho and szob could also go out to there and alternator.

I’d sell Diaz just because of his dad. I mean the bloke has disrespected our club! We bent over backwards to help Diaz through the terrible times and rightly so. We paid to bring his dad here to this country and the thanks we get is his dad constantly talking about his son moving else where while our season was falling apart. I just think Diaz should have told his dad to shut up at least untethered season was finished! Move him on and find someone who wants to play for our club.

Ed 25 you must not have seen the other headless chickens we have up top then ? best of a bad bunch is Diaz imo.

{Ed025's Note - he is certainly a threat Brummy but i must say that if i was picking the side i would replace him with Darwin mate..
