He seems quite skillful. Always wary of highlight videos (esp. after Keita took so long to get going), but Thiago looks pretty silky on the ball.
Diogo Jota eh?
35 million is pricy but I'd suggest that says there's deals out there for the likes of Wilson, Brewster Shaquiri and Origi.
23 too. 16 PL goals over two seasons but let's wait and see what he looks like after Jurgens had him on the Steaks.
For any plastic scousers look in the mirror.
Some outlets reporting Jota deal all but done, but after the Lemar deal was pulled after the medical in 2017, I don't count chickens until they're grinning on the website holding a pen.
If Jota comes in, that might sound the death knell for Origi. Jota's two footed but usually plays on the left for Wolves, so may be intended primarily as rotation for Mane. I like what I've noticed of him - likes taking people on, skillful with both feet, drives forward, draws a lot of fouls. I've read that he likes to press too.
From a few clips this morning, I thought he was left-footed but apparently he is stronger on his right.
Either way - I would have preferred Werner, but am amazed that Liverpool are apparently spending £40m + £5m bonuses on what looks like a pretty adequate alternative.
I was honestly resigned to us signing nobody else after Tsimikas, from all the noises coming out of the club about finances. Now it looks like we might be making a second significant signing in 24hrs. Although it appears we have lost Ki-Jana Hoever in the opposite direction for about £9m, and there are likely to be a couple of other departures before the window closes.
