Hansi Flick wants Barcelona to sign Luis Diaz

Hansi Flick wants Barcelona to sign 27-year-old Liverpool attacking mainstay Luis Diaz in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Hansi Flick is an admirer of Luis Diaz. The newly-appointed Barcelona manager wants the Blaugrana to secure the services of the 27-year-old Liverpool attacking mainstay in the summer transfer window.

Luis Diaz and his Liverpool journey

Luis Diaz has been a mainstay in the final third for Liverpool since arriving from FC Porto in January 2022. While the Colombian international has blown hot and cold, he has been a handy contributor in the offensive department for the Merseyside club. In addition, he is a pivotal figure for Los Cafeteros.

The 27-year-old remained inconsistent throughout this season but amassed over 3,500 minutes of game time across 51 appearances in all competitions. Diaz contributed to 18 goals in those outings, finding the back of the net 13 times while providing five assists. While the player’s output was not satisfactory, his stock remains high in the market.

Widespread reports have linked Diaz with several high-profile clubs across Europe in the last few weeks. Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have been vying for the former FC Porto winger, while the player might not look to part ways with Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Big summer move on the horizon?

Barcelona’s interest in Luis Diaz is understandable. Raphinha and Ferran Torres face an uncertain future at the Catalan club heading into the summer transfer window, with the Blaugrana desperate to raise money and balance the books. In addition, the fees recouped from selling high-value assets will fund summer signings.

Diaz is a viable target for Barcelona, and a potential summer move has the seal of approval from Hansi Flick. The newly-appointed Barcelona manager has asked the Blaugrana to launch the offensive to sign the 27-year-old Liverpool mainstay in the summer transfer window. In addition, Nico Williams is an offensive target for the new head coach.

It is unclear if Liverpool will entertain any offers for the Colombian international. Recent reports have claimed that the Reds are considering offering a new contract to Diaz. So, a summer move to Barcelona will unlikely see the light of day despite Flick’s demands.
