Luis Diaz has made it clear to Jurgen Klopp that he is ‘available’ and ‘ready to go’ after his unveiling as a Liverpool player.

The Reds completed a deal worth an initial £37.5million to sign the Colombia international from Porto in the January transfer window.

Diaz arrives at Anfield having scored 16 goals for Porto across all competitions this season, but despite his impressive form, Klopp isn’t expecting the winger to make an instant impact.

On Friday, after returning from international duty, the 25-year-old took part in an individual training session and met his new manager, who he had a clear message for.

‘I think right from the word go! I’m committed to being available from today, the very first day I’ve arrived,’ Dias told Liverpool’s website.

‘I’ve already trained a bit today, I was out on the pitch and then in the gymnasium. So yes, my mindset is that I’m ready to help out my team and do my bit and contribute, as you said. I’m available to the manager and his coaching staff for whatever they need me for, and I’ll be ready to go whenever.’

‘It excites me a lot knowing that I am going to have a manager of that standing and stature,’ Dias added on Klopp.

‘You could see that for yourself both times we came up against Liverpool with Porto, you could tell he was a good person and that not only on the football side of things, but he takes care of the personal side of things as well.

‘At first it is going to be a settling-in period and a chance to grow alongside my teammates and the manager and his coaching staff.

‘As you say, he is going to help me a lot, so I am really happy to be here sharing that experience with him. Here is hoping that helps me a lot in my career as a professional player.’

When delivering a message to the Liverpool fans, Diaz outlined his key strengths on the pitch.

He said: ‘I think I can bring a lot to the team in terms of my pace and my skill and technique on the ball and ability to dribble. I think they are a couple of my strengths. Also, I can score goals.

‘In addition to that, I just want to send a message to the fans to say hello and if you keep supporting us, like you always have done, I know you’re a great set of fans and I am going to give absolutely everything I’ve got, 100 per cent, to help my team as much as I can and hopefully make you really happy.’
