A number of Liverpool fans have given their thoughts on the reports linking Diogo Jota with a move to Anfield.
Just hours after the Reds secured the signing of Thiago Alcantara, speculation emerged linking the Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker with the Premier League champions.
According to Sky Sports, Liverpool are closing in on a £35million deal for Jota, which could be completed as early as Saturday.
The 23-year-old has been a crucial player for Wolves since his initial loan switch from Atletico Madrid in 2017, made permanent for 14million Euros (£12.7million) the following year.
To date, Jota has made 131 competitive appearances in the old gold, registering 44 goals and 19 assists, but is yet to feature this season.
He left Molineux before kickoff against Stoke in the League Cup in midweek, according to Sky Sports, and was an unused substitute in the 2-0 Premier League win at Sheffield United.
Jota has shown he is one of the Premier League’s brightest talents and, at just 23 years old, the Portugal international is only just getting started for club and country.
With great pace, vision and ability to carry the ball and commit defenders, not to mention superb passing and shooting skills, the £45,000-a-week ace is surely destined for a top club.
And with Liverpool looking like they’ll be the big club to snap him up, some of their fans are pleased to say the least:
I’m in shock

Wow. What a day. Now reports that talks between Liverpool and Wolves are at an advanced stage for a deal of around £35M for Diego Jota. That escalated quickly.

The pull of the most successful club in the country is unmatched

I am in love with the idea of signing Jota btw, he is an incredible talent with so much potential and has a much higher ceiling than Sarr. It would be a masterstroke to get him in to this team.

I don’t think people understand how good signing Jota would be.
Incredible finisher, one of the best options off the bench in the league and could easily cover for Mane or Salah if anything happens to them. Also, no more Origi at LW 😍

Jota is a incredible deal if we can get it done. Can cover all 3 positions up front and is still young
