Liverpool star Luis Diaz is reportedly in line for a shock exit in the summer transfer window.

The Sun reports that Diaz is in line to leave Anfield, if Liverpool manage to tie down Mohamed Salah to a new contract.

Interest from Spanish clubs in the Colombian forward has been noted, with Liverpool open to negotiations given their abundant attacking resources.

The primary focus for the incoming manager is to renew contracts for key players Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Virgil van Dijk.

Diaz’s tenure at Liverpool, marked by a challenging period including a family kidnapping incident back in Colombia, might pivot based on Salah’s contract situation.

Diaz, who joined from Porto in January 2022 for £37m, alongside Thiago Alcantara and Joel Matip, who are anticipated to exit, await the club’s decision post-appointment of a new sporting director and Klopp’s successor.
