      He’s quite a stocky little bugger! Has got the build to play in the Bobby role I think

      Fair play.

      Il be honest and say he’s never caught my eye when I’ve watched Wolves but if Jürgen thinks he’ll add something and push our current front three on to better things then fair play!

      Just happy we are finally making some moves.

      I think Sarr is more of a Mane player. Jota feels like Shakiri without the injuries!
      Think Jota more rounded player than Sarr and technically better

      Was a nap that we'd be in for a forward, in my opinion, as i thought the Werner thing sort of showed the Gaffa's hand

      Lovely player, likes to dribble, works hard and apparently is comfortable on both feet. Brilliant  news imo

      Yea that's true, he's not as fast as Sarr but more of a goal threat and a better link up player so would suit our style more.

      And it's not like he's slow, either.

      Brewster and Shaq I would think.

      Maybe Origi too.

      Signing Jota gives us strong cover for our front three now as we'll have Mane/Jota, Firmimo/Minamino, Salah/Ox.

      Great depth.

      With Thiago here I think Fab is the Lovren replacement in the depth chart.

      This well captures the stupidity of fans. We just signed a world class player in Thiago and about to get another player who looks like a great fit, and these are the things you’re worried about. For f**k’s sake.

      Yeah I was thinking that but I wouldn’t mind a decent reliable CB to compete for that place next to Virgil, someone like Kabak.

      But I’m being greedy ha!

      Yeah I agree,no way anyone who has made us winners is going to leave, no main players, we are a major pull in world football

      Very rare post from a long-time lurker...

      Hailing from the Midlands originally (but with enthusiasm for football fired by Messrs Dalglish, Fairclough, Johnson and Neal, circa 1977/78), I've got a fair few mates who are Wolves fans. I'd say that if asked to name the three players they'd hate to lose, it'd be three out of Jiminez, Jota, Traore and Neves. They've just spent the thick end of £35m on an 18-year old (Fabio Silva) and the theory is that he's not going to be warming the bench, even allowing for his youth.

      There is a feeling amongst some Wolves fans that Jota can be a bit temperamental, which Jürgen will want to sort out if true (but if anyone can...)

      Wow we have moved quickly over the last 48 hours.

      Before the window i said I wanted a back up LB and another forward. Got both of those plus Thiago, our squad looks very well equipped to defend the title now.

      This is coming a bit out of the blue, know of Jota, seen bits and pieces, but didn't see him as a 35mill player for us.
      But we've done great player business in the past so...

      Would have much preferred Jimenez. Jota is a decent player but he’s not really a player you can turn to and think he’s got a goal or assist in him. We need more goals from the bench and covering players but Jota isn’t that type of player. I’m not really too sure why we’ve gone for him when we have Minamino who is probably the bigger threat of the two. I tend to watch a lot of Wolves games and I can’t say I’ve ever been particularly impressed and thought he’s the sort of player we need, especially at that price. The fee isn’t massively far off what Werner would have been.

      But again, it goes to show that nobody has a clue what we are doing recruitment wise because they were all pushing the Sarr talk.

      I think we are still going to be lacking that player to really push the front 3 for a place in the team.

      Ox can’t play in in the front 3, he struggles 9 times out of 10 when he plays there.

      The coaching team rate him and they have been spot on lately, I remember a few years ago everyone said Traore was crap/headless chicken.

      I don’t care what people thought of Traore a few years ago, we aren’t signing him.

      Our coaching team also rated Karius.
      Just because our staff rate someone doesn’t mean we can’t have our own opinion.
