Gossip: Liverpool Open to Luis Diaz Offers Amid Contract Talks with Mo Salah

Reds Consider Future of Colombian Forward as Contract Negotiations with Key Players Continue

Liverpool Football Club is reportedly open to offers for forward Luis Diaz this summer, with the possibility of his departure contingent on contract negotiations with star player Mo Salah, according to reports.

Speculation surrounding Diaz’s future at Anfield has emerged, with The Sun suggesting that Liverpool will entertain offers for the Colombian winger if Salah agrees to a new contract with the club. The priority for Liverpool’s decision-makers, as per the report, is to secure new deals for Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Virgil van Dijk. If Salah extends his stay, the Reds are said to be willing to consider offers for Diaz, with several Spanish clubs reportedly showing interest.

However, should Salah opt to explore opportunities elsewhere, Liverpool plans to capitalize on the situation. Football Insider indicates that the club will demand a significant fee, ‘well in excess of £100 million,’ from any potential suitors, particularly Saudi clubs, despite Salah’s impending status as a free agent.

In other transfer news, Liverpool is in the process of appointing a sporting director to oversee the task of replacing Jurgen Klopp and securing contracts for key players. While the position could be filled within the next fortnight, the identity of the potential candidate remains uncertain. Richard Hughes, the current technical director at Bournemouth, is one of the names linked with the role. However, Hughes is also a contender for the sporting director position at Newcastle United, as per reports from The Telegraph. His Italian background and experience make him an attractive candidate for Serie A side AS Roma, who are in search of a new sporting director following the departure of Tiago Pinto.

Meanwhile, in Italy, Manchester United and Aston Villa are reportedly monitoring the progress of Torino’s right-back Raoul Bellanova. The 23-year-old, who has impressed with five assists this season, previously spent time on loan at Inter Milan. With interest from both Premier League clubs, Bellanova’s future could see a significant turn, especially if he earns a call-up to the Italy national team for the upcoming friendlies, as rumored by Tuttosport.
