Behind Enemy Lines: Diogo Jota's successor the whole of Europe will chase | Wolves star who has been as big a loss as Virgil van Dijk

Blood Red: The Liverpool FC Podcast

Liverpool travel to Wolves off the back of a morale-boosting Champions League victory midweek - needing to translate that form into the Premier League. Matt Addison speaks to Birmingham Live's Wolves reporter Alex Dicken to get the lowdown from Molineux ahead of the clash between the sides. Diogo Jota is going back to his former club for the first time, with Pedro Neto the man who has stepped up to replace him. Raul Jiminez has been missing through injury, contributing to Wolves' poor performances in the league under Nuno Espirito Santo - and Alex says he has been as big a loss as any of the Reds stars who are out. Adama Traore was linked with a £100m move to some of Europe's top clubs, including Liverpool, last summer, but has only managed one assist and no goals in the league this season - though that does not tell the whole story.

Under the Radar: Spotlight on Ibrahima Konate, the Liverpool-linked centre-back compared to Virgil van Dijk

Blood Red: The Liverpool FC Podcast

Ahead of the Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against RB Leipzig on Wednesday, we get the lowdown on a player who Liverpool will be up against in Budapest, and who, if reports are to be believed, is a possible summer transfer target for Jurgen Klopp. Ibrahima Konate is thought to have a release clause similar - €40m - to fellow Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano, who is moving to Bayern Munich. Konate is being tipped to follow Upamecano in leaving the Bundesliga outfit in the near future - with Liverpool one of the clubs to have been linked with the 21-year-old Frenchman. So what type of player is he? Would he be worth the money? And would he sign for the Reds even without Champions League football? Matt Addison speaks to former team-mate of Liverpool boss Klopp, Guido Schafer, who is now a journalist for Leipzig-based newspaper Leipziger Volkszeitung, and then Josh Williams, our tactics and analytics writer, to find out whether there could - or should - be anything in links between the Premier League champions and Konate.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/
