Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will take charge of his final game for the club when they face Wolves on Sunday. 

The German will depart Anfield this summer after nine years in charge, a period during which he has lifted eight trophies including the Champions League and Premier League.

Feyenoord boss Arne Slot is set to succeed Klopp at the helm, and this summer could be a busy one in terms of players arriving and departing.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo via 90min, La Liga giants Barcelona have made Liverpool winger Luis Diaz one of their top targets ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Colombian joined the Reds from Portuguese side Porto in 2022 having impressed for his former side.

He has since made a total of 97 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions, scoring 24 goals and providing 13 assists.

The 27-year-old remains a regular for Klopp’s side at present, having made 50 appearances for his side this term, but Barcelona are considering a move to lure the Colombia international to Catalunya.

Diaz is contracted to the Merseyside outfit until the end of the 2026/27 campaign, but the player himself would be open to the idea of leaving Anfield this summer, the report claims.

It is claimed that Diaz would want a similar wage to his current one if he were to move to Spain, and the La Liga side are planning to raise funds by selling members of their current squad, as well as agreeing new commercial deals with sponsors.

The report also suggests that, if an offer is made, Diaz is likely to put pressure on Liverpool to allow the move  to go through.
