Diaz’s Outstanding Form In Portuguese Football This Season
Diaz has enjoyed the best season of his playing career and has managed to give a good account of himself on the left side of Porto’s attack. The 25-year-old has registered 16 goals and six assists in 28 matches for the Portuguese outfit in this campaign across various competitions.
The Barrancas-born sensation has been a consistent performer in the final third based on his average of 3.5 shots, 2.2 key passes and 2.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in Liga Bwin. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball after making 81.9% of his attempted passes in the Portuguese top tier (stats via whoscored).
Will Diaz Be A Dream Option For Tottenham Hotspur?
Diaz can use his pace and agility to make some driving runs with the ball in the final third and can make some promising chances for his teammates to find the back of the net. He has added plenty of goals to his game this season and doesn’t mind putting in a hard-working performance in the opposition half.
Tottenham need to add more firepower to their attack if they want to secure a top-four place in the Premier League later this year. Hence, Diaz fits the bill perfectly as he will enhance the quality of Antonio Conte‘s first XI considerably at the English capital for the long run.
At 25, the Porto star’s best years are ahead of him, so Spurs can expect to make the most out of his talents if they can get him on board during this winter transfer period. Diaz will be a dream option for the North London club as he has what it takes to become a future star at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
