Liverpool have kicked into high gear as the transfer window approaches its final couple of weeks.
Long-awaited transfer target Thiago Alcantara was finally announced on Friday after months of ongoing talks. The £20m move appeared to flick a switch in the Reds camp, as the champions have also agreed a move for Wolves’ Diogo Jota.
Is signing Diogo Jota good business for Liverpool?
According to Melissa Reddy, the Portuguese forward is set to agree a five-year deal with the reigning Premier League champions. His signing will cost the club £45m but Wolves have accepted to receive an initial 10% instalment in the next 12 months.
Liverpool’s primary payment for their newest coup will see them pay just £4.5m. Youngster Ki-Jana Hoever is also set to move in opposite direction after a £13.5m move has also been agreed between the two clubs.
Many Kopites can hardly believe their luck and have flocked to the replies to Reddy’s tweet to share their excitement. One supporter has said that sporting director Michael Edwards ‘is a genius’ whilst another believes this signing could be a ‘smokescreen’ ahead of an upcoming marquee deal.
