Liverpool Star’s Troubling Stat Emerges as PSG and Barcelona Eye Transfer

Over the last few months, Paris Saint-Germain have been linked to Liverpool standout Luis Díaz. While there are conflicting reports regarding the seriousness of PSG’s interest, there’s a concerning stat that should have the Parisians’ attention.

The 27-year-old’s contract expires in 2027, but Liverpool wants to secure him with a new agreement, given the interest he’s generating. Apart from the capital club, FC Barcelona are also reported to be in the mix for the Colombian sensation.

Nonetheless, published a stat regarding the Premier League’s biggest xG underperformers this season, and Díaz is on the list. According to the stat, the Liverpool star has a -4.15 regarding his xG, but the silver lining could be he’s not the worst underperformer as that belongs to his teammate Darwin Núñez (-6.47).

This season in the Premier League, Díaz has made 34 appearances while scoring eight goals and registering five assists. The xG underperformance might be one-off and the player’s goals begin to reflect the xG stat next season, offering a glimmer of hope for his future performance. However, it’s a concern that PSG should have if they pursue the player.
