Wolves and Portugal forward Diogo Jota is joining Liverpool in an deal worth an initial £41m with add-ons taking the total to a potential £45m. In addition, Liverpool will send defender Ki-Jana Hoever the other way.

The deal for Hoever is worth £9m with potential add-ons of a further £4.5m and there is a 10% sell-on clause should the Dutch defender be moved on from Molineux in the future.

Diogo Jota has a bright future

Diogo Jota is a good young talent who can play across the front-line and will add good depth and options, likely ahead of Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino. Jota joined Wolves on loan initially, but completed a permanent move in 2018 for £12.8m from Atletico Madrid.

Jota has made 131 appearances for Wolves, scoring 44 goals. Jota appeared in 67 Premier League games, scoring 16 times and registering 6 assists ranking him 9th in the league. Diogo Jota will be looking to improve his finishing at Liverpool having missed 12 big chances in the 2019/20 season, the 13th most in the league.

However, 2019/20 was a big step up for the young Portguese player, playing in a total of 48 games as Wolves went deep in the Europa League. With 7 goals in the Premier League and a further 16 in the Europa League, Diogo Jota scored his most goals in a season since Wolves Championship season.

Jota has made 4 appearances for the Portuguese National team, making his debut in 2019. He will become Liverpool’s third signing of the summer window, joining Kostas Tsimikas and the expected signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich.

Liverpool are looking to add depth at key positions this summer as they look to retain the Premiership crown they one for the first time last season. It was their first league title in 30 years and one they are clearly intent on retaining.
