The 25-year-old has been a hit since arriving from Wolves in 2020, scoring 34 goals in 85 games and being the subject of another incredible Liverpool chant.
It was a “really proud” moment for Jota and one for Reds to celebrate on social media.

Diogo Jota resigning is great news for Liverpool. A natural goal scorer. Fact he isn't a nailed on starter is a huge testament to how good the Reds attack is

“Excellent business again by the club, we’re in such good shape right now on and off the field its frankly ridiculous.
If it wasn’t for City we’d be basking in a glorious dynasty of success right now!”

That is now all Jota, Diaz, Nunez (2028), and Carvalho contracted until 2027.
Assuming Carvalho is mostly used in the midfield, that is 3 quality players for 2 attacking positions for 5 years guaranteed. Nice. https://t.co/Az6QOCSTKX

We are doing a fantastic job at getting our key players and younger players tied down to lengthy deals right now. The future is bright https://t.co/QcuNY6lOyB

Fantastic news – Jota’s gone under the radar in recent months but nobody should question his elite quality and importance to the team.
We basically have a 15+ goal a season player for the foreseeable future. ??? https://t.co/oe0LkGOUtq

There have been plenty of memorable moments for Jota to date, with his efforts in the League Cup and FA Cup last season, in particular, standing out as the Reds went on to lift both pieces of silverware.
While there will be a wait to see the No. 20 back on the scoreboard after a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury, Jota says he should be back in “a few more weeks.”
“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,” Jota said of his injury.
“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.”
‘Ohhhh, he wears the No. 20!’
