Blood Red: Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool | Diogo Jota next? | Ki-Jana Hoever to Wolves?

As Thiago Alcantara prepares to swap Munich for Merseyside, we analyse the importance of the transfer for Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions Liverpool, and react to reports suggesting they also want Wolves winger Diego Jota. Paul Gorst and Ian Doyle join Guy Clarke to discuss the deal the Reds have in place to sign Champions League-winning Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago and what he will bring to the Liverpool team. The panel also look at what other moves in the transfer window Michael Edwards and Klopp could look to make with reports suggesting that Jota of Premier League rivals Wolves is at the top of their shortlist alongside Watford's Ismaila Sarr. And could young Reds defender Ki-Jana Hoever be set to go the other and sign for Wolves? Plus, ahead of Sunday’s clash with Chelsea, we preview the game at Stamford Bridge and discuss the ‘rivalry’ between Klopp and Frank Lampard. Enjoy.
