As Luis Diaz approaches a comeback, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp now has “fresh headaches”
Liverpool’s results this season are proof that the 26-year-old has been sorely missed over the past few months. According to the BBC, Diaz joined Liverpool last year for a potential £50 million price. During the January transfer window of the previous campaign, the Colombian moved to Anfield and had an immediate effect on Merseyside.
In just 13 outings during his first few months at Liverpool, Diaz registered four goals and three assists, according to Transfermarkt. In Diaz’s absence, Liverpool didn’t lack for attackers thanks to the acquisitions of Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez this season, but the 26-year-old provides something a little different in attack. The Liverpool Echo reports that Diaz is anticipated to make a comeback following the international break and might be ready for their upcoming Premier League match against Manchester City.
Jones asserted that with so many attacking players to choose from in the coming month, Klopp now has some welcome problems. According to Transfermarkt, Diaz has missed 27 games for Liverpool so far this year.
The 26-year-old winger has made a contribution this season despite having only seven Premier League appearances to his credit. Before his unfortunate injury, Diaz had tallied three goals and given two assists this season, according to FBref.
Before spending a significant amount of time receiving medical attention, Diaz averaged 1.8 dribbles, 5.8 duels gained, and 1.3 tackles per game in the Premier League. After their poor loss to struggling Bournemouth the previous time out, Liverpool may decide to change up their attacking lineup in response to Diaz’s return.
