Wolves attacker Jota can reach next level if he avoids slow start next season

Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Diogo Jota enjoyed a brilliant first season in the English top-flight, but it’s easy to forget he started in extremely slow fashion.

The Portugal international finished the campaign with 10 goals and seven assists in 37 games across all competitions.

But the 22-year-old failed to register a single goal or assist until December and his form was just a little short.

Jota found his feet at the turn of the New Year and has been one of the stars at Molineux, as the West Midlands club secured European football for next season.

He’s had experience in European football before that will be useful for the group and his stock should continue to rise.

Jota has found a perfect spot in the system of manager Nuno Espirito Santo, where he plays as a second centre-forward off teammate Raul Jimenez.

He has the individual quality to become the talisman in the Wolves team and delivering a more consistent season in front of goal could take him to that.
