Liverpool face an almighty fight if they wish to sign Wolves winger Adam Traore this summer, with ESPN reporting that Juventus and Manchester City want to sign the speedster.
Traore has once again been in exceptional form for Wolves this season. His threat from wide areas has led Nuno Santo’s men to the brink of a Champions League spot, while he’s become one of the most feared wide players in the Premier League.
Liverpool have been credited (Talksport) with an interest in Traore as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen. However, the Reds face an uphill task if they do wish to sign him, with Juve and Pep Guardiola now entering the fray.
The report claims it is Juventus who lead the race. But Guardiola is well in the hunt it is claimed, with the City boss looking out for a replacement for the recently departed, Leroy Sane.
Traore is a man in-demand heading into the summer. The Express claimed in May that Manchester United had highlighted the Wolves man as a target, although reports of s £90m fee could be off-putting.

Adama Traore is a massive player in the Premier League and specifically, for Wolves. His form is superb and you get the feeling he’s not even unlocked all his potential.
But will Liverpool realistically have the money to challenge City and Juventus for his signature? It’s a big question and one that seems to be answered with a no at the moment.
After pulling out of a deal for Timo Werner, it remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp will go big in the market. The money may be there in some capacity, it just depends if FSG are prepared to go all in to back the manager again.
