Liverpool continued their impressive squad bulking with the acquisition of Diogo Jota from Wolves.

The Portuguese star has completed a £45million switch, adding to the arrival of Thiago Alcantara on Friday.

The Reds have now officially confirmed the move for Jota, which went under the radar and only hit headlines after Thiago's switch.

Liverpool have also sold Ki-Jana Hoever, the young Dutch defender, to Wolves, but it was a separate deal and not part of the negotiations for Jota.

Prior to this week, the only arrival at Anfield was the signing of Greek left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

But Jurgen Klopp has finally splashed out, landing two players he is huge fans of.

Jota has agreed a five-year contract at the Reds and has become the club's fourth most-expensive signing after Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Naby Keita.

Jota, who will wear the No.20 shirt, said:  “They are a special team; the way they press, the intensity that they put into the game is just another level and that’s what I want to be part of – that anger to play the game and to score goals.

“I think that’s a great way to play the game and that’s the way I want to play as well.

“I think there was no doubt – no doubt about Liverpool being the best team in the league last season by some distance.

“The intensity they put into the game… they were just unbelievable. They were all over the place. It felt like they were playing with more players than the other teams. Hopefully we can do the same again this year with me being a part of it.”

Klopp has been keen on reinforcing his top three in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

With the Africa Cup of Nations set to go ahead, both Salah and Mane are expected to be absent for some time.

Now with Jota joining, the forward can be utilisied to somewhat soften the blow Liverpool are set to take.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed to reporters on Saturday that the deal for Jota was happening.

He said: "First I want to apologise to those on Thursday for my answers. But you understand.

"What Diogo did for us was absolutely fantastic. I think Diogo is going to the right place and we wish him all the best. He'll never be forgotten by our fans. Know we have to balance our squad better.

"We know the type of player want to bring and where we need to work on in our squad. Liverpool are going to have a great player and boy."

In the same interview, Nuno confirmed that Hoever was signing for Wolves.

He said: "He's a young player with talent and potential.

"This is what is happening. Diogo is joining Liverpool, and Ki will join us. He's not eligible for the match on Monday.

"Ki has a bright future ahead of him. We think this deal is good for everybody. Diogo was really happy here, but it's normal that players like to face new challenges."
