      In my opinion he possess the qualities that make him very close to being as good as it gets in terms of  Firmino understudy in this league. Very much underrated by a lot of people but if you watch him enough you can't not see the quality

      Don't know a whole lot about him, but if we are looking for an understudy then he is at a great age for that. At 23yo he's good enough to get considerable playing time and learn from the best and would only be 26 or so by the time he would take over as a starter for Bobby, if that is who he'd be groomed after.

      All I know about him is that I signed him on Fifa 20 in career mode has a back up winger and he turned out immense...

      I've always thought he's a solid player the handful of times I've seen him.  He's a hard working winger who has some pace, skill, and trickery about him.  Probably a better fit for our 4th choice forward than either Origi or Shaq.  If we get him, it will likely be him, Minamino, and Chambo playing as backups to our regular front 3. 

      Alternatively, this could be smoke and mirrors to get Watford to lower their asking price for Sarr.

      Very much the Klopp type of player. I would say the most Klopp player in the league that does not play for us already. Very versatile, quick, smart, can score but also has a very good eye for finding his partners with smart passes in the final third. Can operate anywhere across the frontline and in the hole. Usually plays on the wing for Wolves but he cuts inside a lot to link up with Jimenez.

      I personally like him the most with Traore and Dendoncker in that Wolves team

      He's not like Bobby though he plays wide left he would be cover for Mane.

      Minamino is the understudy to Bobby.

      Minamino is the understudy to Bobby.
      He can play on both wings, as a striker or in the hole but you're right he mostly plays the left wing. However, if we signs him sure we'll see him covering for both wings, Bobby and he might be thrown in hole sometimes if we play with an AM.

      Hiw versatility and ability to give quality performances across the frontline is probably the main reason he coming here. He gives us a lot of depth in my opinion

      Liverpool closing in on Jota deal. Talks at advanced stage. Fee expected to be over £35m. (@_pauljoyce)

      Probably the bit of business that pushes it over the line for Wolves.

      Went on a Wolves forum to get their thoughts, most seem pretty gutted to lose him. Very well liked over there.

      Think it can be a good bit of business for us. I've seen him only a handful of times so can't really comment but always looked like he had something about him. Only 23 so plenty room to develop with us.

      I see Wikipedia already has him as a Liverpool player as well!

      His goal record isn't amazing but we've seen a few forwards come here and get a lot better in that department.

      Whenever I've watched him I've been impressed with his work rate and energy, and I think he can cover either left or right wing so all in all this seems to be a good potential addition and some real competition for the forwards.

      Another unbelievable signing if this goes through. Surprised people saying they don’t know anything about him. Seen him plenty for wolves and he is a very tidy player. Fits into our system and would be fantastic cover.

      Can’t help but wonder why we’re splashing    cash all of a sudden. I’m worried.

      A very inconsistent player can be red hot and then will put in 5/10 performances for the next 3 games.

      He is young so he has time to learn from Klopp and the great front 3 we already have, although got to admit I would prefer Sarr.

      Haha, if this materializes its epic. Such an underrated player, and just what Klopp wants of a forward - a terrier, with an unrelenting press and an eye for goal.

      Same as above, would prefer Sarr, but I’ll get Jota! If anyone can get the best out of him it’s Klopp... this window just got interesting!

      I think Sarr is more of a Mane player. Jota feels like Shakiri without the injuries!
