Jota is Liverpool’s third signing of the season following the arrivals of Alcantara and Tsimikas
Liverpool have completed the signing of Portugal forward Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a long-term contract, the Premier League champion said Saturday.
Liverpool’s versatile 18-year old defender Ki-Jana Hoever moved in the other direction on a five-year contract, having played four senior games for the Anfield club following his arrival from Ajax Amsterdam in 2018.
British media reported that Liverpool agreed a five-year deal worth about 41m pounds for Jota, whose versatility and work rate should fit in well with manager Juergen Klopp’s hard-pressing style of play.
The 23-year old Jota was left out of Wolves’ League Cup defeat by Stoke City Thursday and was an unused substitute in their 2-0 league win over Sheffield United last weekend.
Initially arriving on loan from Atletico Madrid in 2017, Jota has scored 16 goals and provided six assists for Wolves in the Premier League over the last three seasons.
Jota is Liverpool’s third signing of the close season following the arrivals of Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich and Greece left back Kostas Tsimikas.
