Diogo Jota: Liverpool Agree £45m Deal With Wolves For Forward, Ki-Jana Moves From Liverpool to Wolves

Following up with our exclusive report yesterday on the agreed deal between Liverpool FC and Wolves on the transfer of Diogo Jota, we can now authoritatively say that the deal has been agreed and only waiting for formalities to be completed.

Liverpool has agreed to sign Diogo Jota, Wolverhampton Wanderers forward, for £41M in a deal that could rise to £45M with individual and team performance-related add-ons, and he's set to sign a five-year deal at Anfield.

The Diogo Jota deal is a welcome development from fans, following the capture of Spanish holding midfielder, Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich. The former Porto and Athletico Madrid player, Diogo Jota, has scored 44 goals for Wolves in 131 appearances. He is in line to become Liverpool's third summer signing following the arrival of Holding Midfielder Thiago Alcantara, £20M, and Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas for about £11.7m.

Liverpool defender Ki-Jana Hoever will be moving the other way in a £9M deal, and a possible £4.5M in add-ons. Therefore, Liverpool's net spending for the Diogo Jota deal is approximately represented at £30M. In the deal that will see defender Ki-jana Hoever move to Wolves, Liverpool has negotiated a 15% sell-on clause in the transfer that takes young Dutch defender Hoever to Molineux.

Diogo Jota, who can play across the forward line is highly rated and thoughts of providing stiff competition for places with Liverpool's forward lineup of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are not farfetched. He would also be a quality squad addition, providing further cover, with the likes of Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.
