Liverpool have agreed a £45m deal for Wolves forward Diogo Jota, with the 23-year-old set to head to Melwood on Saturday to undergo a medical before completing the deal.


The move comes just hours after the Premier League champions secured the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich in a deal that could be worth up to £25m.

Jota’s arrival at Anfield could be made easier by Liverpool defender Ki-Jana Hoever moving to Wolves in a deal worth £10m, plus add-ons.

Jota left Molineux before kick-off against Stoke in the Carabao Cup on Thursday and was an unused substitute at the weekend in the 2-0 win at Sheffield United .

Liverpool teenager Hoever, who has appeared four times for Jurgen Klopp’s side, can play right wing-back, right-back and centre-back – all positions which Wolves are looking to strengthen during this transfer window.


The 18-year-old joined Liverpool from Ajax in 2018 and only signed a new long-term contract at Anfield last summer.


However, he is set to join Wolves on a permanent deal after terms were agreed between the two Premier League clubs.
