Liverpool are in the final stages of finalising the deal for Dutch winger Cody Gakpo, who would be eligible to feature at Brentford on January 2.
There have been question marks over if it would be possible considering Monday, January 2, is a public holiday and the need for the FA to rubber stamp the deal before he has the right to feature.
But it appears it will be possible for Jurgen Klopp to name Gakpo in his squad should all the formalities be completed as expected ahead of the transfer window opening on January 1.
Gakpo is to undergo his medical imminently ahead of his £37 million move from PSV, but just because he will be eligible at Brentford does not mean he will take any part.
It came naturally to Diaz to slot into the team and the hope will be Gakpo can enjoy a similar transition at Anfield.
