Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Diogo Jota, according to a report.

The Reds confirmed the signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich on Friday afternoon in a deal worth an initial £20m.

Jurgen Klopp hinted at his press conference earlier today that Liverpool are not necessarily finished in the transfer window yet, having also brought in left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

The Liverpool Echo claims that the Merseyside outfit are already at an advanced stage in their pursuit of their next target, with a deal for Wolves ace Jota believed to be close.

Portugal international Jota is rumoured to now be at the top of Klopp's wanted list, ahead of Watford's Ismaila Sarr, with a little over two weeks of the window left to run.

Liverpool are said to be confident of striking a deal with Wolves for the 23-year-old, who has scored and assisted a combined 22 goals in two Premier League seasons at Molineux.

Liverpool are reportedly on the brink of confirming the £45m signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Diogo Jota.

On a day when the Premier League champions formally announced the arrival of Thiago Alcantara, it was claimed on Friday afternoon that the Merseyside giants were also attempting to sign Jota.

However, in the space of half a day, developments have occurred at a rapid pace, seemingly resulting in a deal being agreed.

According to The Athletic, all of the relevant parties have given the green light for the transfer to be finalised over the weekend.

Wolves are allegedly in line to receive an initial £41m for the Portugal international, who has penned a five-year contract at Liverpool.

The report also confirms that defender Ki-Jana Hoever will move in the opposition direction in a separate deal.
