Tottenham 'Make £37m Bid For Porto Winger Luis Diaz', Liverpool And Manchester United Are Also Interested

Tottenham have made a £37m bid for Porto forward Luis Diaz, according to reports in Portugal.

Diaz has attracted interest from a number of clubs in the Premier League, including Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool, after scoring 16 goals in 28 appearances this season.

According to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, Tottenham have now submitted a formal bid for the Colombia international.

However, it is likely to be rejected as it is significantly lower than the £67m release clause in the winger's contract at Porto.

The Portuguese league leaders are said to be 'analysing' the offer, which could potentially rise to more than £40m with bonuses.

Diaz has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract with Porto and the club are reluctant to sell him midway through the season.

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte is keen to sign attacking reinforcements in January, with Spurs managing just 26 goals in 20 league games this season.

Portuguese channel SIC Noticias claim Tottenham have given Porto a 48-hour deadline to respond to their bid, which could suggest the Premier League club has other targets if Diaz is unavailable.

Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Diaz, who has scored 41 goals in 125 games for Porto since joining from Colombian side Junior de Barranquilla in 2019.

However, Liverpool are reportedly willing to wait until the summer before making an approach for the 25-year-old, who was part of the Porto side that lost 2-0 at Anfield in the Champions League earlier this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United reportedly sent scouts to watch Diaz last week, while Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have also been monitoring the forward.
