Few players embody Liverpool’s modern transfer strategy like Diogo Jota and the attacker is here to stay at Anfield

Few players embody Liverpool’s modern transfer strategy like Diogo Jota. Eyebrows were raised and questions were asked when it was announced, abruptly, that the Reds had secured a deal worth a potential £45m with Wolves in September 2020.

To many whose knowledge of the Portuguese forward was gleaned from highlight shows alongside the occasional live televised game, it didn’t appear to be an obvious fit.

Whenever Wolves were analysed, Klopp was said to be struck by Jota’s work rate, versatility and determination; three traits that he has shown in spades since making the move to Anfield.สล็อตเว็บใหญ่

Tracked for a couple of years prior to his eventual move from Wolverhampton, Pep Lijnders received a glowing set of reports when he spoke to his contacts in Portuguese football and the club’s healthy working relationship with Jota’s agency, Gestifute, allowed the transaction to be completed with minimal fuss, aware from the glare of the transfer gossip columns.

Initially arriving as high-quality back-up for Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah’s, Jota’s trajectory now serves as a shining example to those who may find themselves in a similar situation to the one the frontman found himself in a little under two years ago.  เว็บบาคาร่า

An impressive first campaign saw the former Porto and Atletico Madrid attacker end the campaign with 13 goals in total, including important strikes against West Ham, Arsenal and Manchester United. A Champions League hat-trick in a group game at Atalanta made several sit up and take note too.

A three-month lay-off with a knee injury disrupted progress somewhat, but Jota’s sophomore season was even better as he played an integral role for a club that went all the way to a 63-game campaign that included a domestic cup double.

Having established himself a valuable member of the Portugal squad during his time at Anfield, Jota registered a further 21 goals for the Reds as he usurped Roberto Firmino as Klopp’s first-choice leader of the line. สล็อต

Such performances have encouraged Liverpool to raise the prospect of a new and improved contract for Jota, whose current salary sits at a reported £90,000 a week.  เว็บสล็อตแตกบ่อย


Any fresh terms for the 25-year-old will see him rewarded further and a new deal for Jota will complete the kind of journey Liverpool hope any new arrival will be able to enjoy at Anfield.

The general idea behind the wage bill structure is to give new signings a more modest salary with heavily-incentivised bonuses to encourage peak performance on the pitch.
