Diogo Jota has revealed his dream Liverpool signing, surprisingly it’s not Cristiano Ronaldo

Liverpool’s Diogo Jota has expressed the international teammate he would most like Liverpool to sign.

Jota made the move to Anfield in the summer of 2020 to add competition for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino in the attacking lineup. Having gained experience in the top two divisions with Wolves, the move to Liverpool was seen as an ideal platform for Jota to showcase his skills on major stages.

In the 2020/21 season, he impressed by scoring 21 goals in all competitions, contributing to Liverpool’s strong performance although they narrowly missed out on a historic quadruple. Jota has also become a part of the Portugal national team setup. His preference for a potential new signing from the international arena highlights his ambition for the club’s future prospects.

As a result, Jota has played with top stars for both club and country – and chose from the latter when asked to name his dream Liverpool signing. Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes were both snubbed.

Speaking toThat’s Football, Jota instead named Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva as the player he would most like Liverpool to sign.

He explained: “Bernardo Silva, for me, is one of the most intelligent football players, for sure, I’ve known.

“The way he can hide the ball from the opponents is special. I think I’ll go for him.”

Bernardo has spent six years at City after arriving from Monaco in 2017, helping Pep Guardiola’s side to win five Premier League titles and one Champions League crown.

The 29-year-old has made over 200 appearances in all competitions for City, and signed a new contract this summer until 2026.

Perhaps the most similar player to Bernardo in Liverpool’s ranks is Thiago, who joined the Reds in the same summer as Jota.

Liverpool added four midfielders to their ranks this summer, with Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch arriving at Anfield following the high-profile departures of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson to theSaudi Pro League.
