Everton-focused Twitter account @EvertonNewsFeed have shared some comments that were recently made by Wolves attacker Diogo Jota in praise of the Toffees, via a tweet which has attracted the attention of some Everton supporters.
This tweet quotes Jota as stating that he “loved to watch Everton play”, with the Portuguese international going on to describe the club as “relentless”. Jota’s complimentary words for The Toffees originally surfaced in an interview that the Portuguese attacker recently conducted with The Guardian.
After joining Wolves from Atletico Madrid in July 2018 for a transfer fee of £12.6m, Jota, who is now valued at £31.5m according to Transfermarkt.co.uk, has scored 43 goals and provided 19 assists in 120 competitive games during his time at Molineux.
In addition to that, the 23-year-old has scored 15 goals and provided six assists in 37 appearances for Wolves so far this season according to Transfermarkt.co.uk, six of which have come in the Europa League, making the Portuguese attacker the joint-highest goalscorer in the Europa League this term.
Considering his impressive attacking performances for Wolves this season, it may be understandable why some Everton fans have been reacting positively to the 23-year-old’s recent comments in praise of the Toffees. One Everton supporter has even called for the club to “swap him for Walcott” in response to @EvertonNewsFeed’s recent tweet sharing the Portuguese attacker’s comments.

"I loved to watch Everton play, especially when they were playing at home. It was not a club that fought for the title but that always made life very complicated for the big teams. And I loved that drive and competitiveness. They were relentless.” – Wolves forward Diogo Jota pic.twitter.com/5e4rO5BoWB
