Upon sealing the transfer on Saturday, Jota told It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my family.’ 

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.’

He will wear the vacant No.20 shirt for the Reds, taking over from Adam Lallana who signed for Brighton this summer.

Diogo who spent three seasons with Wolves after his move from Atlético Madrid, made 67 appearances and scored 16 goals for the premier league club.
