Liverpool: Journalist drops Diogo Jota contract update

Liverpool have already secured and extended the contract of Mohamed Salah this summer, and it now looks like they will be making efforts to keep hold of another Anfield star imminently.

What’s the latest?

According to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, the Reds are now prioritising a new and improved contract for Diogo Jota.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jacobs revealed: “Liverpool will also look to offer Diogo Jota improved terms as a matter of priority. Most of the other names currently being linked with Liverpool are just rumour or agent talk with little substance.”

Supporters will be delighted

There is no doubt that Liverpool supporters will be delighted to hear that Jota could be given an improved contract, especially when you consider how well the Portuguese star has done since he made the move to Merseyside in 2020.

Over 85 appearances for the Reds, Jota has scored 34 goals and delivered nine assists, with a goal contribution every 124 minutes played proving that he has become a consistent and reliable performer in the front three during his time at the club already.

The 25-year-old was the third-highest scorer in the squad last term with 21 goals and was tied as the sixth-highest scorer in the Premier League alongside Kevin de Bruyne on 15, but it’s not just his goal contributions which have made him a valuable asset to Jurgen Klopp.

Jota ranked third for the most big chances created (67) in the Premier League, only falling short to Salah and Harry Kane, while he ranked first for headed goals in the top flight.

The Liverpool forward also made 1.2 key passes and 1.1 tackles and won 4.1 duels per game over 35 league appearances, along with scoring one goal and delivering one assist in the Reds’ impressive Champions League campaign.

Should Liverpool give Jota a new contract?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Klopp is a huge fan of Jota and has made his feelings clear on the player on many occasions, reserving high praise for the 25-year-old, who he hailed as “exceptional” following his brace against Southampton last season.

The German claimed of Jota (via EuroSport): “Exceptional player, exceptional boy. He has everything that a Liverpool player in this squad needs, he has the technical skills, he has the physical skills and he is very smart and can learn all the tactical stuff pretty quick.”

With that in mind, securing the Portugal international’s future at Anfield would be a major coup for FSG as they continue their pursuit for trophies and further success in the future.
