Premier League champions Liverpool have made a transfer masterstroke with the signing of Portuguese international attacker Diogo Jota according to The Athletic.

Liverpool will pay just £4m upfront for the player whom they have signed for £45m. It was revealed that the Reds will pay less than 10% of his transfer in 12 months before they pay the remainder instalmentally.

The Reds have made a major coup with the signing of Jota from fellow Premier League outfit Wolves after they agreed to pay an initial fee of £41m for him plus £4m in add-ons.

Liverpool will fund the aforementioned £4m with the exit of Ki Jana Hoever to Wolves in a £13.5m.

The young defender has left Liverpool to join Wolves for an initial fee of around £9m plus £4.5m in add-ons. The Dutchman also have a sellon clause of 15% inserted into his contract.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had earlier targeted Watford winger Ismaila Sarr as the man to provide stiff competition for his front trio before the English Championship side priced the Reds out of a move for the Senegalese international.

The Reds had to turn their attentions to Diogo Jota who has been at Wolves since 2017.

Diogo Jota was part of the Wolves squad that finished in 7th position in the English top flight last season.
