Jurgen Klopp’s side are enduring a miserable campaign that has left them languishing in seventh in the Premier League and out of both domestic cups.
And they also need a miracle to progress in the Champions League after being thrashed 5-2 at home by Real Madrid in the first-leg of their last 16 tie last week.
Colombian winger Diaz, 26, arrived at Anfield from Porto 13 months ago and scored four goals and provided three assists in 12 games this season.
However, he has been sidelined since undergoing surgery following a knee injury sustained in a 3-2 defeat at Arsenal back in October.
Klopp has hinted that he could be ready to return to action for the second leg with Madrid on March 15 – but this fresh report states that the South American’s days on Merseyside could be numbered.
Italian publication Calciomercato states that Liverpool want to bring in Milan forward Rafael Leao as part of their summer rebuild.
The 23-year-old Portuguese international, who has scored 31 times in 118 Serie A appearances, is out of contract in June 2024 and talks on a new deal have stalled.

This update claims that Milan are willing to “listen to offers” to avoid losing him for nothing.
Liverpool are allegedly one of the teams interested in signing him and they could use Diaz in an attempt to “snatch Leao”.
It adds that Klopp “likes” the ace and that could pave the way for a “sensational exchange” between Liverpool and Milan.
Calciomercato also says that the San Siro side would prefer a “cash-only proposal” rather than a swap.
They value the former Sporting Lisbon and Lille man, who has been at Milan since 2019, between £105m and £131m.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have also all been linked with Leao over recent months.
