Spurs sought a deal for Diaz during the January transfer window, but their interest forced Liverpool to act, eventually signing the Colombia international for a fee of around £45million.
The 25-year-old has since adapted quickly to life in England, scoring twice in five games, fitting in perfectly alongside Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diego Jota.
Diaz opened the scoring at Brighton as Liverpool closed the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City to just three points with a trip to the Etihad in April.
Like the aforementioned Jota, Diaz’s quick impact speaks volumes about the cohesive transfer strategy in play at the club and could have a say in where the League title ends up at the end of the season.
“Luis Diaz’s impact could turn this season into a special one for @LFC,” Carragher wrote on Twitter.
“The club only signed him in January because Spurs made an offer, thank you Daniel!”
