And on Saturday morning, Romano suggested that Everton are making good progress towards signing Diaz.


The player himself “wants Everton as priority”, he added.

This was music to Everton fans’ ears, with some taking to Twitter to praise the reported developments:

Diaz joined Porto from Colombian side Junior FC in 2019, and has made 99 appearances to date.

The 24-year-old has netted 26 goals and notched up 13 assists for the Portuguese giants.

Diaz also finished as joint-top scorer at the 2021 Copa America alongside Lionel Messi, both scoring four goals.
