Liverpool have signed Diogo Jota from Wolves for an initial fee of £41m, with the forward potentially to make his Reds debut on Thursday night. To get the lowdown on the Portugal international, Blood Red's Matt Addison speaks to the Birmingham Mail's Alex Dicken, who covers Wolves regularly. Alex explains where Jota will fit in under Jurgen Klopp, why he could one day be a long-term replacement for either Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino, and how he compares to Adama Traore. There is also an interesting comparison made to former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, though Jota will have to considerably increase his consistency to reach anything like the Uruguayan's level! The chat concludes with a discussion about Ki-Jana Hoever, the Dutch youngster who moved to Wolves from Liverpool for a fee that could rise to as much as £13.5m, in a separate transfer deal. Enjoy!
