When Diogo Jota came to Liverpool, it must have been a bit of a surprise to many. Relatively unknown to the masses, Jota has made a name for himself in Merseyside.
He is now the subject of a popular Liverpool terrace song and soon, he might be joined by another Jota who is also making a name for himself in the Champions League.
Playing for Celtic, João Pedro Neves Filipe aliás Jota impressed in the group stages of the Champions league, matching the famous Ousmane Dembélé of Barcelona for the most shot-creating actions or seven.
Even more impressive is that he is playing for a Scottish side that is not part of the big European clubs that are dominating the game for years.
Nevertheless, it must be known that the name Jota is only a nickname for the Celtic player as it is for the Liverpool star. The real name of the Liverpool Jota is Diogo José Teixeira da Silva.
However, there is now a push for Liverpool to look into snatching Jota from Celtic and that would mean there will be Jota playing for the Reds if that were to happen.
Celtic’s Jota is earning praise for his performances in the Champions League against Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk.
It is clear that the other Jota has become a key player for Celtic under coach Ange Postecoglou.
Transfermarkt values him at just £6.75 million, but that figure is sure to rise if his performances continue at this level. While his Champions League efforts have yet to result in goals, he has four goals and four assists in just six league matches this season.
Reports are saying Liverpool could be interested in the player. Will a player from the Scottish league perform and survive in the English Premier League?
At Liverpool, they seem to believe that anyone can become a star if they are under the spell of Jurgen Klopp who has weaved his magic around the club, winning the EPL and the Champions League altogether.
