Chelsea and Tottenham in Luis Dias transfer fight with Porto demanding £30m fee for Colombian winger

CHELSEA and Tottenham are reportedly battling for Porto's Colombia star Luis Diaz.

The left winger finished joint top scorer at last month's Copa America finals, alongside Argentina's Lionel Messi, with four goals.


Diaz inspired Porto to the 2020 Portuguese league and cup double in his first season at the Estadio do Dragao.

And the 24-year-old has made a flying start to this season with two goals in his first three games.

Now Lisbon outlet MaisFutebol claims Diaz's advisors have travelled to England for talks over a move to the Premier League.

And both Chelsea and Spurs officials are set to meet them to discuss a potential deal.

The representatives are understood to have spent time in Portugal and Spain before offering the winger to the bitter London rivals.

Diaz is under contract with Porto until 2024, and has a £68million release clause.

However the Primeira Liga outfit would accept closer to £30m for the 23-cap international.

They paid Colombian outfit Atletico Junior just £7m for him in 2019.

Diaz scored against hosts Brazil, Argentina and Peru (twice) as unfancied Colombia bagged a third-place finish at this summer's Copa America.

He has struck an impressive 50 times in 250 club appearances for Porto plus home-country clubs Barranquilla and Junior.
