Liverpool 'agree £45m deal with Wolves' for Jota as Hoever heads other way

LIVERPOOL have agreed a £45million deal with Wolves attacker Diogo Jota, according to reports.

Meanwhile, Reds' Dutch defender Ki-Jana Delano Hoever is set to go the other way as a makeweight in the deal.

Jurgen Klopp made Jota his priority after landing Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Champions League winners Bayern Munich.

Portuguese attacker Jota, 23, will be back-up for main men Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

The Times sports reporter Paul Joyce claims Jota will move for An initial £41m with another £4m in add-ons.

Hoever is valued at £9m with £4.5m in add-ons, he claims.

Many fans have questioned why Reds chiefs have stumped up so much for Jota, who scored just seven goals in the Premier League last season, when they baulked at paying £48m for Timo Werner.

Werner, who scored an astonishing 34 goals last season for RB Leipzig, moved to Chelsea earlier this summer.

Champions Liverpool had been criticised for a lack of action in the transfer market this summer.

Eighteen-year-old Hoever has failed to make a single Premier League appearance for the Merseysiders in his 18 months at Anfield.

He played one FA Cup tie and two League Cup games.

The Amsterdam-born defender can play at right-back or centre-half.

Jota had arrived at Molineux from Porto and helped the men in gold win promotion to the Premier League.

The ex-Atletico Madrid frontman struck 18 goals in the Championship title-winning campaign.
