After Liverpool signed Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota inside two days, the Liverpool ECHO's LFC correspondent Paul Gorst explains the inside track on the transfers. Speaking to Matt Addison, Paul talks through how the Jota deal unfolded out of the blue, including some details on how Liverpool tracked the player, and how assistant manager Pep Lijnders was crucial to making it happen. There is then talk of Thiago - another transfer that was done relatively quickly once the Reds decided to make their move, with Bayern Munich accepting an initial £20million fee. And finally, with Ki-Jana Hoever gone, could Liverpool sign a new centre-back? And what does the last few days mean for former targets Ben White and Ismaila Sarr? All is explained. Enjoy.
