He is versatile enough to operate in wide areas as well as in the number ten role. He will add goals and creativity to the side and help Liverpool create more goalscoring opportunities.

Liverpool winger Luis Diaz has been linked to the move to Paris Saint-Germain, and the representatives of the Colombian international have already held talks with the French outfit. Edwards is being looked at as a potential replacement.
