Atletico Junior hosted an open trial in 2014 and Luis Díaz was impressed enough to be a part of the youth team. Due to his Wayuu heritage, he was part of Colombia’s 22-man team for the Copa Americana de Pueblos Indigenas 2015. After impressing at the tournament, he was assigned immediately to the farm team Barranquilla by Atletico Junior’s senior team in 2016. Barranquilla gave Diaz a diet plan to help him gain 10 kilograms due to his slim build.

He scored to confirm a 2-0 victory. He was dismissed in a 1-1 draw against Braga on 10 February for breaking David Carmo’s leg. His compatriot Uribe also was dismissed.

After scoring four goals and providing three assists, Luis Díaz was named the league’s Forward-of-the Month on December 19. He was the seventh-highest scorer, with 14 goals. He, Sergio Oliveira, and Jesus Manuel Corona all left Porto in January 2022. They were each presented with league winners’ medals.


While on international duty in Colombia, Diaz signed a five-year contract with Premier League club Liverpool, for EUR45 million (PS37.5million), and EUR15 million (PS12.5million) add-ons. Before signing for Liverpool, Luis Díaz was also interested in Tottenham Hotspur. After learning about Tottenham’s offer, Liverpool made a change in their summer plans and signed Diaz to a permanent contract. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, was impressed.

He made his debut as a substitute for Curtis Jones on 6 February in a FA Cup fourth-round match at Cardiff City. In the 3-1 victory, he assisted Takumi Minamino‘s goal. Thirteen days later, he scored his first goal for Liverpool in the second league game for the club.
