With a deal for £21 million star, Jurgen Klopp might repeat Liverpool’s Diogo Jota trade trick.
Jota has been one of Liverpool’s most successful transfers in recent seasons, and Klopp is hoping to replicate the feat.
Since coming from Wolves, Diogo Jota has been one of Liverpool’s biggest transfer success stories in recent seasons, giving the Reds’ attack an obvious boost. Jurgen Klopp can replicate the trick by signing Arnaut Danjuma, who is valued at £21 million.
Before their match against Manchester City, Jota has scored 16 goals in 38 appearances since joining to Anfield, surpassing Roberto Firmino in the pecking order.
Prior to City’s visit, the Portuguese attacker had started all six of Liverpool’s Premier League games.
In those games, he was only used as a centre forward and scored three goals in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old has made the £41 million Liverpool paid for him appear like a good investment, and his youth also positions the Reds well for the future.
After a dismal season in attacking areas last season, Klopp’s squad has regained their swagger in front of goal.
Jota has been a big part of that success, putting up the third most pressures of any forward who has played more than 270 minutes in the Premier League so far this season.
His arrival at Anfield last summer was met with a lukewarm response, despite the attacker’s relatively ordinary goal-scoring seasons at Wolves.
Since moving to Merseyside, Jota has transformed into a huge attacking threat for Klopp and Liverpool.
They can use the same tactic with Danjuma, who would also be a relatively unknown transfer target.
Danjuma was a standout performer for Bournemouth in the Championship last season, scoring 17 goals and assisting on eight occasions.
That won him a move to Villarreal, where he has continued to impress despite the step up to the top flight.
The 24-year-old has three goals in seven games for the Yellow Submarine, who have gone undefeated in La Liga when he is on the pitch.
Danjuma has also impressed in the Champions League, assisting Paco Alacer on Wednesday’s goal against Manchester United.
Liverpool are apparently interested in him, despite the fact that he only joined Villarreal in the summer transfer window.
Danjuma’s £21 million price tag would be within reach for the Reds, who only recently signed Ibrahima Konate.
Klopp will also be able to bring in some much-needed wing help. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
