The story broke earlier on Friday that, in addition to signing Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich, Liverpool were also nearing a deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers for their winger, Diogo Jota.

Late on Friday evening, several well respected Liverpool journalists have confirmed that the deal is done and Jota will soon be confirmed as a Liverpool player.

The deal is reportedly for five years and starts at £41m, but could rise to a possible £45m, assuming certain conditions are met.
