A popular figure on an off the field at Anfield, the Portuguese has hit 42 goals and 17 assists in his 118 games since signing from Wolves in a €44.7 million deal in September 2020, and was a Champions League runner-up in 2022.

Bernardo’s future at City has seemed uncertain over the last year with the player admitting to Pep Guardiola that it was a dream to move to Barcelona and the manager publicly expressing his understanding for that position.

However, the versatile midfielder is valued at €79.8m by FootballTransfers’ in-house algorithm, and with a contract that runs until 2026, City weren’t about to give him up on the cheap to the cash-strapped club this summer.

Wolves was something of a Portuguese enclave for Jota, meanwhile – nine players from the nation are currently on the books – while the only other player Portuguese player at Liverpool is Fabio Carvalho, who is currently on loan at RB Leipzig.
