Liverpool have completed the signing of forward Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) for £45-million on a five-year contract.
“Liverpool FC have completed the signing of Portugal international Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a long-term contract,” read a statement on the club’s website.
“The 23-year-old joins the Premier League champions after three seasons with Wolves – two in the top flight, which included 67 appearances and 16 goals for the versatile forward.
Jota also scored nine times in 14 Europa League outings in 2019-20 and opened his account for his country in a UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia earlier this month.”
“It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my family,” Jota said.
“All of my path since I was a kid and now, to join a club like Liverpool – the world champions – is just unbelievable. I just want to get started.
“It is one of the best teams in the world – the best at the moment because they are world champions. When you look at the Premier League, you always see Liverpool as one of the biggest teams in the country, so it’s impossible to say no.
“So we just want to come [here], to give our best and hopefully I can become a good option for Liverpool in the future.”
