Diogo Jota has been an absolute revelation since joining Liverpool in 2020. For an initial fee of just 41 million Euros, given his production he is widely considered to be one of Liverpool's best value for money signings. 

He got off to a flying start and became the first player since Robbie Fowler to score 7 goals in his first 10 appearances for the club.

Unfortunately, a leg injury sustained during a Champions League match against Midtjylland sidelined him for three months but he was still able to net 13 goals in his limited appearances.
