Ryan Gravenberch's undoubted quality has already been clear to see in the very early stages of his Liverpool career, according to Diogo Jota.

Gravenberch has impressed his teammates in the limited number of sessions at the AXA Training Centre following his arrival from Bayern Munich on transfer deadline day.

The 21-year-old could now make his debut for the Reds on Saturday lunchtime when they return from the international break with a Premier League encounter at Wolverhampton Wanderers.


Asked how Gravenberch has been settling in, Jota told Liverpoolfc.com: "I think great.

"Obviously he has two very close friends, the Dutch players, and they are three now, so they can help each other.

"Obviously I've not been in and just had a couple of sessions with him, but you can see already the quality he brings [and] has on his feet.

"I think he will be one more to help us going forward."

Gravenberch and the rest of the Liverpool squad head to Molineux looking to build on the encouraging start to the 2023-24 season.

After a draw at Chelsea on the opening weekend, Jürgen Klopp's men have won the following three fixtures, producing high-level performances and overcoming various challenges within that spell.

On the campaign so far, Jota assessed: "It was not perfect, obviously we didn't win all the games, but I think we must be happy because we changed a lot, we changed our approaches and we still got 10 out of 12 [points], and we had games with difficult circumstances with the red card.

"So I think it's a positive start and hopefully we can go from here."

Jota goes into the meeting with his former club on the back of an extremely strong showing for Portugal on Monday night.

The forward scored twice and delivered an assist during a 9-0 victory over Luxembourg in a Euro 2024 qualifier.

"Always nice to score and getting back in Portugal and scoring," he said. "Obviously I didn't play in the World Cup, so it felt good.

"Back to the Premier League now, changed the ship, like you used to say, and go again."
