Diogo Jota impressing with Liverpool
Liverpool, of course, signed Diogo Jota from Wolves in the delayed summer transfer window.
The Premier League champions are believed to have paid an initial £41m to bring the Portuguese to Anfield.
Said fee did seem quite steep at the time, but before his injury, Jota was actually proving to be a key figure for Jurgen Klopp and co.
Jota would net five in hist first 10 Premier League outings as a Red, whilst also bagging four goals in six Champions League ties.
Jota hoping to be like new signing for Liverpool
However, the 24-year-old would pick up a knee injury early in December and would go on to miss 19 games for Liverpool.
Jota would return to action earlier this week vs Chelsea, but could do little to prevent his side suffering a 5th successive Anfield loss for the first time in their history.
As he edges closer towards full fitness/sharpness, Jota is seemingly looking to bring a lot more to his new club though.
When asked by Liverpool’s official website, what he is looking to bring to this side now he is back, Jota voiced the opinion that he could be like a winter transfer:
“Just a new boost in terms of confidence and, let’s say like this, freshness because obviously they’ve been playing and fighting for the club. I feel like I could be like a winter transfer. So that’s what I hope so they can rely on me and think I can help them in the future.”
When asked how fit and ready he feels for the remainder of the season, the former Wolves man stated:
“Obviously when you are out for so long it’s not easy to get back on track 100 per cent straight away. But it was good, I played around 35 minutes and felt good. So I just need to keep training hard and with game time I think I’ll be at my best again very soon.”
