      Could be a great signing he's a good finisher, probably be happy to play back up to front three for now but with more quality than other back ups. Can see either Divock orBrewster moving on though

      He is definitely a big upgrade on Origi and Brewster, finally we have proper cover for Mane and Salah, plus he's a player who will just get better and better.

      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...)

      <scuttles off to lurk for another few years>

      Think the same used to be said about mane that he had temper before he arrived. Klopp wasn’t long ironing that out when he came! Great to hear from someone that knows fans of the team we’re buying from that they value him! Many good footballers on that wolves team not just the few you mentioned but the likes of Otto, Coady, Boly and the goalkeeper also!

      I read that the deal is £4m upfront for Diogo but we receive £9m upfront for Ki-Jana. We pocket £5m upfront for the exchange. Insane! Michael Edwards deserves to be worshipped.

      What I love about this is that as good as he already is there is so much room for improvement, for example pressure regains and where better to learn that than with us.

      Had a great 18/19 season - goals and assists aplenty.  Bit quieter last season although from what I remember he picked up a few injuries.  In fact that's the only downside to him - he does seem to miss a few games here and there.  (Speaking here in my capacity that I was ahead of Michael Edwards and had him in my fantasy league team the last two years!! ;))

      A lot of potential though if he was smashing other teams up when he had just arrived into the Premier League in Wolves first season.

      I suspect he's been on the radar for some time and they've spent a lot of time on the analysis for him.

      I wonder if we are just taking care of the media work in order to unveil it like what is going on already with Thiago.

      Would the first team have left for London already?

      Fantastic signing this ! We need one more CB for cover and everything looks good.

      Also need to offload Karius, Grujic, Wilson, Awonyi, Shaqiri and maybe Origi (to keep Brewster).

      NUNO SALUTES JOTA

      Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo says Diogo Jota is "going to the right place" after confirming the player will join Premier League champions Liverpool.

      Portuguese forward Jota will move to Anfield for a fee reportedly rising to £45m, with young defender Ki-Jana Hoever heading in the opposite direction.

      "Diogo is amazing and everybody knows the relationship we built. What Diogo did for us is absolutely fantastic," said Nuno at his pre-match press conference.

      "I think Diogo is going to the right place and we wish him all the best, knowing that it never be forgotten, especially by our fans, all the memorable moments that Diogo provided."

      Nuno hopes to swiftly recruit a direct replacement for Jota having already identified an unnamed target.

      "We still have to adjust the squad. It's clear that we need to balance our squad better. We already identified the targets, we know the player we want to bring and now we hope that our plan continues as it previously did.

      "Jeff (Shi, Wolves' executive chairman) knows who is our target and where we need to work on our squad."

      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.

      Credit absolutely has to go to Edwards on this one, we've been chatting wham bars about Thiago and Sarr, Edwards goes old school and quietly gets this done.

      Get in!

      Interesting little bit of stat that I stumbled upon on Transfermarkt.

      Those are Wolves exclusive but NOT exclusively PL numbers (they involve all the competitions he played in with Wolves since signing for them):

      As a Left Winger: Played 76, scored 19 and assisted 7

      As a Center forward: Played 37, scored 18, assisted 8

      As a Secondary striker: Played 12, scored 3, assisted 5

      As a Right winger  : Played 1, scored 0, assisted 0

      It's a simple bit of statistic but it gives a good little insight into what we are getting but more importantly into what role Klopp and his staff are, presumably, eyeing for the lad. Based on those numbers I think he is brought in to be competing with Mane and Firmino. However, based on his qualities and how he seems to be a bit more comfortable in the middle (as his numbers are a bit more prolific there) I'd say he will be given a lot of games in the Firmino role.

      The fact that he can do a good job in both positions also means that he will probably see a lot of games. With the insane schedule we're gonna have this season some heavier than usual rotation will be needed. This, along with the fact that he is proven PL quality, justifies the price tag more than what we would've paid for Sarr.

      Both are quality but Sarr played 26 of his 28 games for Watford on the right wing which is not ideal considering we need flexibility and as much quality cover across the frontline as we can get and this would've ultimately translated into less games played by the lad which, again, does not help justify a heavy price tag (in the very basic terms of money/games played ratio).

      I think that at this level of the game sometime you might need cover over the entirety of your frontline but the quality available paired with the money you can shell out ultimately dictates which position you end up covering.

      There is also a point worth being made that if you need to rest Salah you can easily throw in Jota at LW and switch Mane over to RW and retain a mean attacking edge. You can also throw in Jota at RW if necessary because, if I remember correctly, the lad is also super good on both feet.

      JOTA: IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY NO

      Here's what Diogo Jota's had to say after sealing a move to Liverpool that was "impossible" to turn down:

      "It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my family,” he told Liverpool's website.

      “To join a club like Liverpool – the world champions – is just unbelievable.

      “It is one of the best teams in the world – the best at the moment because they are world champions. When you look at the Premier League, you always see Liverpool as one of the biggest teams in the country, so it’s impossible to say no.

      "I think I am a team player. I play up front and my job is to find a way to score goals and to provide assists and that’s what they can expect from me – that I will always do my best."

      Baffling some of the comments in this thread. People saying they’ve watched plenty of wolves but have never noticed Jota? No idea what they’ve been watching because he was easily one of their best players / stand out performers.

      Others saying he didn’t even make wolves starting 11. Again, he was one of the first names on the team sheet. Mad claim.

      Then people turning their nose up at his stats. He’s in a mid table prem side with an average midfield. What was manes stats at southampton? I’d guess similar.

      As cover, he’s a great signing. Exactly what we need. Very tidy and comfortable on the ball, fairly quick, can play anywhere across the front three (He has played as a second striker before as well as out wide). He will fit in well here and I think Jürgen will get a lot out of him and maximise his huge potential. Maybe bobby will book his ideas up now because we’ve got a genuine player who can come into the team now.

      Great signing. Great couple of days for us. Didn’t expect it at all.

      Fully agree remember one game he was coming back from injury and on bench and when he came on was worried because the last game he played against us was a handful .
