Liverpool complete deal for Wolves forward

Liverpool have completed a deal to sign forward Diego Jota from Wolves.

The initial transfer fee is £41 million, but this could increase to £45 million with add-ons.

However, reports suggest that Wolves will only receive £4 million from Liverpool up front for Jota, with a payment structure agreed between the two clubs spreading the fees over several years..

He becomes Liverpool’s third summer signing after their capture of Greek full-back Kostas Tsimikas, and midfielder Thiago Álcantara who completed his £20 million transfer from Bayern Munich on Friday.

The 23-year old Portuguese international initially joined Wolves on loan in 2017 from Atlético Madrid, for whom he never made a senior appearance, and helped them win the Championship in his first season at the club.

He subsequently made 67 Premier League appearances for them, scoring 16 times.

Earlier this month he scored his first international goal for Portugal in their Nations Cup defeat of Croatia.
