Liverpool are one of those clubs who will always be in the heat of things. Last season they won the Premier League title and so the expectation was big that this summer they will spend a lot. They ended up not doing that and hence the Reds fans’ were naturally disappointed. However, they did get some notable signings onboard, like Kostas Tsimikas, Diogo Jota, Thiago and Takumi Minamino. Tsimikas and Minamo are already showing good signs, with newest signings Diogo Jota and Thiago still yet to make an impression.
Liverpool Latest Signings – Summer 2020/21
Here, we look at Liverpool latest signings of summer 2020. We all know, how much Liverpool are in need of improvements after a troubling winter period. The Red’s form hasn’t been top notch ever since they won the 2019-20 Premier League title. This is why we need to assess the Liverpool latest signings and if they will help the team moving forward.
The forward player was signed from Wolverhampton Wanderers –
Did he play for a big club before? Yes, the answer is he was in for Atletico Madrid. Diogo Jota had signed a long term contract when Atletico Madrid came calling, and the draw of the Spanish capital was in his sights. On 14 March 2016, he signed a long term deal for Atletico, from 1 July that year. Be that as it may, he was never to show up in the red and white stripes before long getting back to his own nation with a year long advance arrangement to FC Porto being concurred in August 2016.
What about playing at home? He played for Porto, the rivals of Benfica, the club his family supports. Diego Jota got his first goals for FC Porto scoring a first half hat-trick in a 4-0 win over C.D Nacional. In July 2017, Jota was moving once more. One more year long credit bargain, this opportunity to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Championship, scoring his first objective for Wolves in August in a 3-2 away win over Hull City. It didn’t take long for Wolves to see his quality and hope to make the loan move permanent.
This occurred in the January 2018 transfer window, with the credit proceeding until the late spring window, and the lasting arrangement beginning in July, for a detailed €14 million. Diogo scored a career best 17 goals that season, causing Wolves promotion to the English Premier League.
Finally he has come to Liverpool now where he has made big changes to his career and has gotten firing straight away by scoring and assisting on 10 diferent ocasions in 13 games for the club. He is however, out now because he is injured.

A successful window but not a hit window. Liverpool made profits from their sales but add on top of that the Champions League money and people expected the Reds to clash. It seems they are still very heavily dependent on Virgil Van Dijk defensively and with Lovren growing old and Matip still not rock solid, Klopp couldve bought someone in defence. On top off that, there three front men are dangerous but the backups are certainly not as good as teams like Real Madrid or Manchester City who can call on Sane, Mahrez and Bale from the bench.
Finally, before we go off mouthing Liverpool for a not so decent transfer window, we must remember unlike Manchester City, Anfield people do not get oil money every summer. Hence, they also must balance the books and so have done well to keep together a strong squad, sign players who can improve them and at the same time stay on the right side of the books.
