Player Profile

Diogo Jota was only linked with a move to Liverpool 24 hours prior to him signing a five-year contract with the English champions. He will provide options for Klopp in attack where he can create and score goals, having netted 17 goals in the Championship as Wolves were promoted to the Premier League in 2017/18 and had 16 goals to his name last season in the Premier and Europa League. Jota came to Wolves from Atletico Madrid, having spent the previous season on loan at Porto where Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge and subsequently wanted him to follow him to England. Adama Traore was the player most often linked with a move from Wolves to Liverpool and Jota's transfer came as a surprise to many. Liverpool have made a habit of finding players who hadn't made a big name for themselves internationally but have gone on to greater things under the guidance of Klopp and his staff at Liverpool and they must have spotted enough potential in Jota that could make him a vital member of the squad. Shortly after his arrival, Klopp revealed that Jota had been on his radar for a long time: "Diogo Jota was on my list for the last 2-3 years - but (for a transfer to happen) it needs to be a right moment. I'm really happy that he's here now." Jota made an instant impact in his first Premier League appearance as a substitute against Arsenal on 28 September, scoring the third goal in a 3-1 win for Liverpool.
