Liverpool sign Diogo Jota from Wolves

 


Liverpool have completed the signing of Portugal forward Diogo Jota from Wolves in a £41m deal that could rise to £45m with add-ons.

The 23-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the Premier League champions.

"It's just a really exciting moment for me and my family," said Jota.

The move represents a net outlay of about £30m for Liverpool, with defender Ki-Jana Hoever moving the other way for £9m and a possible £4.5m in add-ons.

Liverpool have also negotiated a 15% sell-on clause in the transfer taking Dutch player Hoever to Molineux.

"When you look at the Premier League, you always see Liverpool as one of the biggest teams in the country, so it's impossible to say no," said Jota.

"I think I am a team player. I play up front and my job is to find a way to score goals and to provide assists and that's what they can expect from me - that I will always do my best.

"I will always try to help the team in the best way possible."

Jota's move follows the Anfield club's £20m capture of Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich on Friday.

They have also signed Greece left-back Kostas Tsimikas for about £11.7m this summer.

Jota can play across the forward line and would provide further cover - in addition to Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi - for Liverpool's front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

"He is a player who gives us so many options to use him," said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. "He's 23 years old, still far away from being kind of a finished article, so much potential.

"He has the speed, he can combine, can defend, can press. It makes it just more unpredictable and gives us real options for different systems."
