The 25-year-old has signed a long-term contract with the Reds after passing a medical and finalising personal terms. Diaz will arrive on Merseyside once he has completed international duty with Colombia, who face Argentina in a World Cup qualifier in Cordoba on Tuesday evening.
The signing of Luis Diaz by Liverpool from Porto for 45 million euros plus 15 million euros in bonuses is now official. On Sunday morning, it had already been leaked that the Reds had reached an agreement with the Portuguese and, during the course of the day, they made official the arrival of the Colombian, who will play in the Premier League for the first time in his career.
He has signed for five and a half seasons, that is, until June 2027. His long-term signing is a sign of the confidence that the Anfield board have placed in him. The idea is that the legendary stadium will become the scene of an even more remarkable progression as a footballer than the Portuguese League has already witnessed.
"Liverpool have completed the signing of Luis Diaz from Porto, subject to the successful granting of a work permit and international clearance," reads the statement released by the English club to announce their purchase.

Luis Diaz has been making waves since his early days at Junior, the club where he attracted the attention of Porto before making the big leap to Europe. There, far from dropping off in performance, he continued to rise, especially in the last season, 2021-22, when he scored 17 goals and provided five assists in 28 games. He joins Liverpool after two-and-a-half seasons with FC Porto, where he made 125 appearances and scored 41 goals, and will wear the No.23 shirt.
He had previously represented Barranquilla FC and Junior FC in his homeland before making the switch to Europe in 2019. To date, Diaz has 31 caps for Colombia, with seven goals for his country.
