Diogo Jota signs new long-term Liverpool contract

Diogo Jota has become the latest Liverpool forward to sign a new long-term contract at Anfield.

The Reds headed into the close-season with their superstar front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino.

Salah agreed on new terms, while Mane left for Bayern Munich. Firmino has made clear his desire to stay but is yet to put pen to paper.

Now, the week before the new Premier League season starts.

Jota has ensured he will remain a vital part of this Liverpool team.

The Portugal international signed from Wolves in September 2020 and quickly established himself ahead of Firmino in the pecking order, although Mane often played through the centre last season.

This term, Jota will have further competition in the form of the new signing of Darwin Nunez.

But the 25-year-old – who has scored 34 goals in 85 games for Liverpool – is up for the fight.

Reportedly now under contract until 2027, Diogo Jota told Liverpool’s official website:

“Well, [I’m] proud, I have to say.

“Since I arrived two years ago, I established myself as an essential player in this team – that’s what I wanted from the beginning.

“Now, signing a new long-term deal is evident from the club’s perspective, proof of my belief in myself as a player.

“For me, it’s really good to establish I’ll be here for a while.

“So, the beginning of a new season, let’s do it.”

In his time at Liverpool, only Salah (60 goals, 22 assists) and Mane (39 goals, 10 assists) have scored more goals or registered more goal involvements (41 for Jota) than the striker.

Jota has impressively averaged a goal every 157 minutes in all competitions.

He ranks fourth among Liverpool players over this period in that regard, behind Nunez (31), who netted on his debut on Saturday, the departed Takumi Minamino (133) and Salah (135).
