‘Wow Incredible Scouting’ ‘That Is Good Recruitment’ Liverpool Fans React As Klopp Reveals How Summer Signing Came About

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he had been monitoring Diogo Jota‘s progress at Wolves for two to three years before the Reds decided to sign him earlier this month.

There was very little forewarning of the Merseyside club’s move for the Portuguese international prior to the ยฃ45m transfer being sealed but Klopp confirmed that plans had been in place to snap up the 23-year-old for a while:

“It’s so difficult to improve a team like ours, to bring in players who fit in exactly, but I know for a while about Diogo Jota. He’s been on my list for two or three years alreadyโ€”but it needs to be the right moment. So I’m really happy that he’s here now and it’s been a great start.”

Liverpool’s scouting system is very much in a league of its own at the moment with the club using data analysis to identify key targets before Klopp decides which would fit his system. Supporters on Twitter are in awe of the club’s recruitment strategy:

Of course, there is a way to go before we can certify Jota as a successful signing but he has definitely made an excellent start after scoring on his league debut. He looks to be a perfect alternative for Sadio Mane on the left-hand side.
