Premier League giants Liverpool have wrapped up a second transfer in the space of two days after they agreed on a deal to sign Diogo Jota from Wolves.

The Reds have spent over £70m on the two signings.

They had earlier signed Champions League winner Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich in a £27m deal.

Liverpool will pay an initial fee of £20m for the 29-year-old, while the remaining £7m will be paid if the player wins the Champions League or the Premier League.

Thiago Alcantara has signed a four-year contract at Anfield. He had one-year left on his Bayern Munich contract and the Germans had to sell this summer or risk him leaving the club as a free agent.

For Jota, Liverpool will pay an initial fee of £41m plus £4m in add-ons for a total of £45m according to Press Association.

Diogo Jota has been at Wolves for the past three seasons and he’s expected to provide back-up to the front trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

The 23-year-old became the forward option for Liverpool after the Reds were rebuffed in their attempt to sign Ismaila Sarr from Watford.

Liverpool were quoted over £40m when they enquired about the Senegalese international.
