Liverpool have set an asking price for 26-year-old forward who could leave this summer
Liverpool forward Diogo Jota could be looking for a way out in the upcoming transfer window according to Football Transfers.
Last year was Jota’s best year. The Portuguese forward scored 15 goals last season. But this season his injury issues sidelined him from the actions.
His absence forced Jurgen Klopp to invest in a forward in the previous transfer window. The introduction of Cody Gakpo has made Jota’s game time more constrained.
Klopp finally made his front trio work and he will not try to alter it until the end of this season. After the dominant performance at Anfield against their arch-rivals Manchester United the Reds finally seemed at their best after a long period of time.
Even though the Portuguese was bought from the bench in the second half but the damage was already been done by Nunez, Gakpo, and Salah.
Why is Diogo Jota looking for a way out of Liverpool?
Every player wants game time but looking at the current scenario it is really tough for the 26-year-old to return back to the starting eleven as frequently as he use to.
This could be a key reason why the Portuguese international is looking for a way out from Anfield.
Another forward who could face the same problem is Luis Diaz. The Colombian is also out of action due to injury issues. He has played 9 matches in the Premier League, where he assisted 2 goals this season.
According to reports, the Merseyside giants will be demanding a total of £62M for Jota this summer. Meanwhile, another forward who is going to head out from Anfield is Roberto Firmino.
The Brazilian has been clear that he is not going to continue in Anfield but he is still focused for the rest of the season.
Jota is an important player for the Merseyside giants but now it is up to the player whether he wants to fight for his position or he will search for a new club.
