Liverpool are reportedly ‘closing in’ on a big-money deal to sign Wolves attacker Diogo Jota, with supporters left overjoyed after an unforgettable day in the transfer window.
The 23-year-old has been an influential figure for Wolves, forging a menacing striker partnership with Raul Jimenez and scoring 16 times last season.
It has been a day to treasure for anyone of a Liverpool persuasion, as they make huge progress in the summer transfer market.
Signing Jota would cap off a brilliant window for #LFC. Cover at left-back & the front-three absolute necessities, especially with gruelling fixture list alongside sparkle of Thiago. 16G & 6A’s last season, can play across front three, experienced & yet still young at 23.

Adding quality depth to the front three was an absolute necessity to address this window. Jota is ideal – can play wide left or through the middle, and at 23 has significant scope for further development. Helps with future AFCON issue as well. Makes so much sense.

Thiago is better than any of our CM’s. Jota is better than any of our back up forwards.

Jota a bit like Mane at Southampton. A player that stands out but you’d never say he’d be able to play at a level befitting of Real Madrid. Yet, he just makes perfect sense and Klopp will turn him into a world beater, as happened with Salah too.

Jota makes it 10/10 man hes perfect for us. Pedro type player who gets you 10 goals minimum from wide with both feet
