Liverpool have made some astute signings since Michael Edwards took over recruitment. The Reds have been buying low and selling high, becoming the envy of the footballing recruitment world. One man could go down as a bargain signing for the ages. Diogo Jota continues to impress for Liverpool after he netted the winner against Sheffield United.
Liverpool sign Jota
This summer transfer window was an exciting one for Kopites.
For the first few months we were told time and again that there was no money in the pot, that the club was skint due to the global health crisis.
Then Thiago happened – the Reds bringing the Spaniard in after a window long pursuit. Great news.
Just hours after the Thiago deal was wrapped up, news broke that Liverpool had secured Diogo Jota in a £41m deal.

We were all shocked by the news, we weren’t linked with him until just a few hours before the deal was wrapped up.
Diogo Jota impresses again
Diogo Jota has settled into the side quicker than we could’ve hoped for.
The 23-year-old netted on his Premier League debut for the Reds, putting the game to bed against Arsenal.
He has since impressed with a cameo against Ajax and has this weekend bagged the winner against Sheffield United.
The Portuguese star was in fine fettle against the Blades, always looking to drive forward, bouncing passess off his teammates as he charged up the pitch.
He came up with the goods when needed, nodding in Sadio Mane’s superlative cross in the second half.
Jota will be a bargain
At jut 23-years-old, Jota has so much time to improve and where better to do that than Liverpool?
Jürgen Klopp has consistently turned good players into great ones, transforming obscure footballers, diamonds in the rough, into world class superstars.
Jota has arrived already boasting a great deal of ability but even more potential. If he continues in this form and continues to improve then Liverpool’s £41m will look like a bargain of a deal.
