Liverpool’s presence has finally been made known on the transfer market as they start an influx of advanced talks for both incomings and outgoings.
The Reds have finally welcomed top transfer target Thiago Alcantara through the door after months of ongoing talks. Bayern Munich agreed a £20m fee for the midfielder, who leaves the Bundesliga club after seven years of service (via BBC Sport).]
Do you think Liverpool are right to sell Ki-Jana Hoever?
Now that the long-awaited deal has been finalised, the rumour mill seems to be in overdrive. Within the space of a few hours, Liverpool have moved onto a new target and have made a swoop for Diogo Jota.
Whilst the £45m man waits to arrive on Merseyside, Reds youngster Ki-Jana Hoever is set to go in the other direction. Wolves have agreed to pay a rather generous fee of £13.5m for the youngster, according to Melissa Reddy.
Whilst the Jota news will come as a welcome surprise, many aren’t happy to be losing the Dutch defender. One fan has slammed the move as an ‘awful decision’ but another seems to think the amount they are bagging for him is a very good deal, as the 18-year-old has only made four senior appearances for Liverpool.
They have taken aim at the fans who are unhappy with the news by telling them to ‘get a grip’, as Jurgen Klopp evidently favours Neco Williams as the best alternative to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.

Seriously people in the comments, GET A GRIP !! if a kid is leaving it’s because Klopp doesn’t fancy him, if you can’t get behind that then you need to have a word with yourselves pronto !! He clearly favours Neco as back up to Trent, stop moaning on Thiago day
