Liverpool poised to make millions from ex-player they bought for just £100k
Liverpool are set to make a hefty profit from a player they had bought for less than £100,000.
When forward Diogo Jota joined the Reds from Wolves two years ago for an initial £41million, it saw academy footballer Ki-Jana Hoever go in the opposite direction to Molineux for £9million.
The Dutch international has struggled to find form under coach Bruno Lage and reports over the summer have made it apparent that the Midlands side would be willing to sell Hoever for the 'right price'.

As per the deal with Liverpool, it is believed that Wolves would have to pay their rivals 15% of the profit earn if he leaves for a price of more than £9million – including add-ons.
PSV Eindhoven currently have the 20-year-old defender on loan and he has made four league outings so far this season – and if the move was made permanent and a price was agreed above the amount that Wolves paid for him, Jurgen Klopp’s side could receive a handsome fee.
Are transfers becoming overly complicated? Let us know in the comments section.
Hoever made the move to last season’s Champions League runners-up from Ajax's academy in the summer of 2018, with the Reds forking out just £90,000.
He went on to make just four appearances for Liverpool despite being promoted to train with the first team just months after his arrival.
He scored just one goal for Liverpool during his two-year spell at the club and it was Neco Williams who was the preferred back-up for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.
He told Goal last year about his decision to leave Anfield. “It wasn’t an easy choice, but it wasn’t that hard either," he said. “I knew my playing time would be more than at Liverpool, that’s why I made the decision. I thought it was the best thing for my career in the moment.
“Now of course with the injuries (at Liverpool), you don’t know, but I don’t think like that. I just thought like, if everyone was fit, how much game time would I have? Liverpool have such a great team still, maybe the best back four in the world, so it was really hard for me to break through there.
“And here the idea was good. I would be really involved in the squad, really a first-team player. It’s basically been what I expected, but I know I can still do better than this. It’s a good first season so far.”
