Diogo Jota Extends Contract With Liverpool Until 2027

Diogo Jota has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. The Portugal international was today, August  2, rewarded with a new five-year contract for his fine form since joining from Wolves back in 2020.

Diogo Jota netted 21 times in all competitions for the Reds last season, but he will face stiff competition for a place this term following the arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica.

Well, I’m really proud, I have to say,’ Jota told Liverpoolfc.com after signing his new contract. ‘Obviously, since I arrived two years ago I established myself as an important player in this team – that’s what I wanted from the beginning.

Diogo Jota said; “signing a new long-term deal, it’s obvious from the club’s perspective proof of the belief in myself as a player. For me, obviously, it’s really good to establish I’ll be here for a while”.

‘So, the beginning of a new season, let’s do it.’ ‘Unfortunately for me I had an upset in this pre-season because I got injured [in the] last game of the season playing with Portugal,’ he added. ‘So I was coming back in this pre-season, I felt it a little bit again. So it will be a few more weeks, I would say.

‘When you fight for everything like we did last year, you just want to do it again and to do it better, because it’s possible. ‘That drive is in me and I know it’s in my teammates and all the staff. We have everything to fight for those titles out there.’

Diogo Jota, who has scored 34 goals in 85 appearances since joining Liverpool, has not been featured in Liverpool’s pre-season matches due to a hamstring injury. However, the forward is expected to miss out on Saturday’s Premier League opener on Saturday at newly-promoted Fulham.
