Wolverhampton Wanderers will reportedly received around £12 million from Liverpool this summer in the next instalment for Diogo Jota.

Jota returns to Molineux tonight for the first time since his transfer last summer, which is reported to cost £45 million in total (BBC Sport).

His exit came rather out of the blue, and Wolves have been stung by him leaving.

He wasn’t always consistent, but the threat he carried was very real, as Liverpool found out in the early stages of the current season.

According to The Telegraph, Wolves are set to receive the full sum of Jota’s transfer fee over a number of years.

They were paid £4 million last summer, followed by a further £1 million in December and £12 million will be the next payment from the Reds.

The reason for this structure is to help Wolves with their cash flow following the financial strain brought about by the pandemic.

It is unclear when specifically Liverpool will be done paying the full £45 million for the 24-year-old.

£12 million this summer is definitely a decent fee for the kitty.

It is thought Nuno Espirito Santo will be looking to make improvements to his squad.

An extra £12 million to the budget could well mean the difference between signing a good player and a great one.
