Diogo Jota, a forward for Liverpool, has extended his contract, keeping him with the team through 2027.
The 25-year-old international from Portugal joined from Wolves in 2020 for £41 million, scoring 34 goals in 85 games.
Jota has only been a member of Liverpool for two years, but this contract is a recognition of his growth and contributions since joining from Wolves.
As a reward for their faith in his continued development, Liverpool not only increased the length of his contract but also its terms.
He can play in a forward position or as a wide attacker, and in addition to scoring goals and dishing out assists, he exhibits the kind of intense work ethic that manager Jurgen Klopp asks of his team.
Jota’s new contract was overseen by new Liverpool sporting director Julian Ward after fruitful preseason negotiations with the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
Ward has had a very active summer. He was crucial in the club’s acquisition of Darwin Nunez and the extension of Mohamed Salah’s contract.
