Liverpool interested in Wolves star Jota as Premier League champions step up summer transfer activity


Diogo Jota Wolverhampton 2019-20

Liverpool are interested in signing Wolves forward Diogo Jota as the Reds step up their transfer business ahead of next month’s deadline.

Jota, 23, was left out of the Wolves squad for their Carabao Cup tie at home to Stoke on Thursday, and is understood to be keen on a move to Anfield. There is growing confidence within the Liverpool camp that a deal can be completed.

The Reds completed the signing of Thiago Alcantara on Friday, the Bayern Munich midfielder penning a four-year deal having finalised his £20million (€22m/$26m) move, and now Jurgen Klopp is ready to turn his attention to adding a new attacker to his squad, as they prepare for this most hectic of seasons.

Liverpool have an interest in Watford’s Ismaila Sarrand would be interested in a deal should the Hornets lower their £35m (€38m/$45m) asking price - but Jota has now emerged as a strong alternative.

The versatile forward has scored 44 goals in 131 appearances since joining Wolves, initially on loan, from Atletico Madrid in 2017.

That move was made permanent the following summer, and in the Premier League Jota has managed 16 goals across the past two seasons, striking up a formidable partnership with Mexican star Raul Jimenez.

Wolves are reluctant to let him leave, but have signed the likes of Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto and Fabio Silva in the past 12 months.

They are also closing in on the signing of Ki-Jana Hoever from Liverpool, though sources insist that that move is entirely separate to any potential deal forJota. Hoever, the 18-year-old defender who has made four senior appearances for Liverpool, would cost in excess of £10m ($13m).
