Liverpool have been linked with a move for Adama Traore since 2018 after he had an impressive first season In the Premier League. The 25-year-old Spanish international joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2018 after a great season with Middlesbrough. Where he won the Fan’s player of the year, youth player of the year, and Players player of the Year.
Meanwhile, Liverpool wingers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah alone have contributed 16 out of the 31 Premier League goals. They have been critical to this season’s attack. However, the Reds will miss both Salah and Mane when they take part in African cup of Nations in January with their respective country.
Is Adama a perfect fit for Liverpool ?
As both the wingers are departing due to national duties in Jnauary, and with Roberto firmino injured. There’s a high chance that the Reds main attacking trio will not be in action for a month. Thus, Liverpool will have a busy transfer window this January. As they lack quality and promising players in attack and in midfield due to Injuries and national duties.
It has been reported by 90min that Wolves are ready to sell Adama Traore in January. The winger is stalling to sign any new deal with the Wolves. Liverpool and Barcelona are in the picture to sign the winger this January but the Reds have valued him less than £30 millions. Which is a price Wolves are not willing to drop.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has been an admirer of the 25-year-old. During an interview, Klopp once said Traore is “undefendable”.
Traore has made 143 appearances for wolves and he has scored 10 goals and 18 assists for the club. Last season he scored only 2 goals and made 2 goals in the premier league but still he was the joint-highest rated player for Wolves in overall season ratings.
According to Transfermarkt, Traore is currently valued at £27 millions. If wolves are willing to sell their star wingmen, then FSG must be ready to spend at least £30m to sign the Spaniard. Moreover, the Reds are in need of wingers to back Salah and Mane now and also in the future. As both of them will be running out of their contracts by 2023.
