Darren Bent lauds 'fantastic' Liverpool forward Diogo Jota
Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has been in sensational form so far this season and is receiving praise from all quarters. The 25-year-old made an instant impact when arriving on Merseyside following a somewhat surprising £41million switch from Wolves (BBC). Despite missing 21 games through injury last term, the Portuguese ace ended the campaign with 13 goals and one assist across all competitions. Already on track to surpass those numbers following a goal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final triumph over Leicester City in midweek, Darren Bent was full of praise for the star whilst appearing on talkSPORT.

Camara has been on the radar at Anfield for some time and has seemingly attracted the attention of Leicester, Newcastle United and AC Milan.
Now according to a report from Calciomercato, as cited by Milan Posts on Twitter, Liverpool remain keen on the 20-year-old.

Now, according to a report from reputable French newspaper L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), as cited by Talkin West Ham #GSBOUT on Twitter, the Hammers are at risk of losing the Frenchman.

Valued at £2.7million and under contract in Greece until 2025 (Transfermarkt), the report has tipped the asking price to ‘soar’ should the attacking midfielder thrive this month.
Likely to feature alongside Keita in the Guinean midfield against Zimbabwe, Malawi and Senegal in Group B, suitors will certainly know more about their target over the coming weeks.
Already billed as an expert ball-carrier, Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be paying close attention to the starlet’s success or otherwise.
