It's just a really exciting moment for me and my family.

Just one day after confirming the signing of the Spain worldwide midfielder, Liverpool have locked up a deal for Jota, who joins on a five-year contract as he becomes the second signing to arrive at Anfield this week.

"All of my path since I was a kid and now, to join a club like Liverpool - the world champions - is just unbelievable".

Jota is Liverpool's third signing this summer, following Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara and Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas. 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.

"He will provide competition for Salah, Mane and Firmino because he can play all of their roles".

He is now already ready to play for us but yes, I'm pretty sure there's something to come. That's what I will do.

The Portuguese spent three seasons with Wolves, and was the team's top scorer with 17 goals when they secured promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship in the 2017/18 season.

The Liverpool boss had faced plenty of calls for further firepower to be added to the ranks at Anfield, despite landing a long-awaited Premier League title in 2019-20. He's a talent, he can play across the front three, he's versatile, he's hungry.

Having made it clear they wouldn't be spending for the sake of doing so, Liverpool throwing £30m+ at another winger immediately after securing the services of Diogo Jota doesn't make a lot of sense.

Earlier in the day, there was another transfer between the two clubs, with Ki Jana Hoover leaving Anfield to join Nuno Espiritu Santo.
