Bayern Munich eyeing Porto winger Luis Diaz

Luis Diaz emerges as new target for Bayern

FC Porto winger Luis Diaz is garnering interest from Bayern Munich, who will consider a move for him in the next summer. According to reports from news outlet TZ, the Bundesliga winners are looking to bring in Diaz as a replacement for Kingsley Coman.

Reports have emerged in the news that Coman is not happy at Bayern and the negotiations for a contract renewal has not progressed. This has prompted the Rekordmeister to look for replacements in the market with Diaz emerging as a top target.

The left-winger had an impressive start to the season and is garnering admirers from across Europe. Luis Diaz was linked with a move for Brighton Hove Albion and Everton in the summer window, but no deal was finalised. Now it looks like Bayern Munich could be the next destination for the Columbian.

DIAZ COULD REPLACE COMAN AT BAYERN

For Bayern, the contract situation of Coman meant that they cannot risk losing him on a free transfer. Hence the club will be willing to sell him in the next transfer window. Currently, clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham are interested in signing Coman.

Bringing Diaz is not a bad move after his impressive performance in the last few months. The player had a crucial impact on his national side. He finished as the top scorer in Copa America 2021 alongside Lionel Messi. Luiz transferred this form to the current season as well. Meanwhile, he has scored 5 goals for FC Porto in their new campaign in just 6 appearances.

However, an issue for Bayern would be the price tag for the player. Diaz has a contract with Porto till 2024 and the club is in no hurry to sell him. Reports suggest that the club is demanding a fee in the range of €40 million for the Columbian. It is to be seen if Bayern are ready to spend such an amount on the 24-year-old.
