Liverpool must pay Wolves £12 million in summer

Liverpool must pay £12 million to Wolves this summer for striker Diogo Jota.

The striker joined the reigning Premier League champions last summer for a fee of £45 million, but only $4 million of that was paid up-front, with a further £1 million handed over last December.

The balance of the payments have been spread because of the financial constraints imposed by the pandemic, and the next instalment will become due after the current season is over.

The rest of the amount due will be paid over the next year, providing a welcome boost to Wolves finances.

Jota has so far proved to be a useful addition to the Liverpool squad, scoring 9 goals in 20 games, although he has just returned to action after a stint on the side lines with a knee injury.

The Portuguese international joined Wolves, initially on loan from Atlético Madrid, and went on to make 131 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring 44 times, before securing his move to Anfield.

Ironically, it was Jota wjo scored the winner for Liverpool against Wolves in their Premier League match at Molineux on Monday night.
