Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made a transfer assault on fellow Premier League team Wolverhampton Wanderers with the signing of attacker Diogo Jota.
According to the report via The Athletic, Klopp opted to sign the Portuguese international star for six reasons.
Klopp and Liverpool had wanted to sign a new attacker since the start of the transfer window and they finally have their man in Diogo Jota.
The Reds were heavily linked with Timo Werner when the German was on the payroll of RB Leipzig only for the player to join Premier League rivals Chelsea in a £53m deal.

The report earlier mentioned revealed that Klopp opted to sign Diogo Jota because he was impressed with his work rate, flexibility, eye for goal, his intelligence with or without the ball, his determination, and his ability to play across the front line.
Diogo Jota had spent three years at Wolves before his transfer to Liverpool was officially confirmed this weekend.
The 23-year-old will provide competition for the famed front trio of Salah, Firmino and Mane.
The Reds will pay an initial fee of £41m for Jota in addition to add-ons of £4m to make the whole deal £45m potentially.
He’s the third summer signing at Liverpool after Greek left-back Kostantinos Tsimikas and Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
