Stephen Eustaquio played alongside the hard-working striker and wants him to transfer again after raising his stock on Merseyside.

‘Diogo Jota won’t be sticking around at Liverpool,’ said his former team-mate Stephen Eustaquio, he tipped the Portuguese forword to “go higher”.

Jota has shown great skills and proved that he is capable of gracing anywhere.

He has had an immediate impact on Liverpool since the moves from Wolves. He has scored seven goals in eleven matches.

His former team-mate is not astonished to see the 23-year-old shinning and believes he is destined for greatness.

He told La Vanguardia: “Jota was in Pacos, Atletico Madrid, Porto, and Liverpool. He works a lot.

“He is a very hard-working person, very delicate with the ball; he plays a lot.

“He is not going to stay there; he is going to go higher. I shared a dressing room with him, he was captain of the Portugal Under-21 team.”

Now, he is satisfied in Liverpool with a long-term contract, but he improved a lot in a short time and this is the reward of dedication.

“In bad times he showed a very strong personality,” the midfielder added. “He is a very humble person and deserves to be where he is.”

Eustaqio believes that Jota could find a way to move to Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid in his career, but John Barnes has claimed that the striker won’t be this much successful in other clubs.

The Reds legend told BonusCodeBets: “I thought he was a good player for Wolves, I thought he would do well but I don’t think anyone would imagine he’d be doing this well.

“If Jota goes to Barcelona, for example, he won’t go there and score loads of goals or play as well.

“Jota is a fantastic player, but there’s no way that Jota would be able to go to Real Madrid and do the same thing, it’s all down to Jurgen Klopp and finding those players that suit his style.”
