Liverpool sign Diogo Jota

The signing of Diogo Jota came as a surprise to many.

The Reds had been linked with dozens of wide forwards throughout the summer but the Portuguese star’s name wasn’t mentioned until the club had pretty much agreed a deal to sign him.

Michael Edwards agreed a £41m deal to bring the 23-year-old to Anfield, the announcement coming just a day after Thiago Alcantara was unveiled as a Liverpool player.
