Liverpool has signed Colombia winger Luis Diaz from Porto in a deal worth 45m euros (£37.5m), with a further 15m euros (£12.5m) in potential bonuses.

Diaz has signed a contract until 2027 with the Merseyside club.

BBC reports that the 25-year-old had previously been linked with a move to Tottenham, who reportedly had a bid of around £38m rejected.

“I’m very happy to sign for Liverpool,” the international said on Sunday via the club’s official Twitter account.

Diaz requires a work permit and is unlikely to arrive in Liverpool until the end of next week at the earliest.
