With the eyes of the footballing world seemingly awaiting the arrival of Timo Werner, the Reds shied away from the German and instead opted for a rather inconspicuous then 23-year-old plying his trade at Wolves.
Having scored seven goals and assisted one other last season in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp and co would have been no strangers to the forward’s ability.
With six goals in just 12 league outings this term, due to missing a large portion of the campaign with injury, few would’ve predicted the impact Jota has made.
A first-half brace in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against Serbia this week has earned yet more admiration from Kopites on Twitter…
Can see Diogo Jota scoring the winning goal in The Champions League Final in Istanbul this year if I'm being honest #Lethal
