Jota is reportedly already set to leave Al Ittihad just a month after moving to Saudi Arabia from Celtic.
The 24-year-old earned his move to the Middle East after starring in Scotland, where he scored 15 goals in all competitions last season.
But after just four appearances for the Saudi side, Jota is set to leave the club, according to stunning reports.
Saudi journalist @m_bukairy claims the winger is set to leave Al Ittihad, with no additional information given on the reason for his sudden departure.
Jota spent two seasons at Celtic before signing for Al Ittihad. He joined on an initial loan before making his switch permanent after the Scottish giants triggered his £6.5 million buyout clause.
He's yet to be replaced at Celtic, who are still in the market for new players ahead of the transfer window slamming shut.
Speaking after his side's defeat to Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup, Brendan Rodgers revealed his desire to bring in new players to improve the squad.
"We want good players, whatever age they are," he said. "We need quality, that’s for sure. Hopefully between now and the end of the window we can improve the squad.
"Clearly the model of the club is to bring the players in at a younger age and develop them and improve them. But we are not against bringing in someone at 26 or 27 if they can improve the squad."
