Report: Liverpool want to sign £43k-a-week speed demon; Tuchel and Bielsa also keen
Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing Adama Traore from Wolves this summer, according to a new report from 90Min.com.
It is claimed that Wolves will sell both Traore and his teammate, Ruben Neves, in order to raise funds this summer. The speedy Spaniard hasn’t quite lived up to expectation in the last 12 months.
Traore has attracted plenty of attention in the past. However, it seems that Liverpool and Leeds are the two in the mix now.
90Min claim that Marcelo Bielsa is particularly keen on Traore. Liverpool, meanwhile, have tracked Traore for some time now and have seen success with his former teammate, Diogo Jota.
As reported on TBR last week, Chelsea are also said to be keen on the winger. His contract with Wolves is said to be a relatively moded £43k-a-week, which will be no problem for PL clubs.
Traore is well known for being one of the strongest and quickest players in the Premier League.
TBR’s View: Traore would slot in well with Leeds and Liverpool, his potential is frightening
Traore seems to be a name that does the rounds every single summer and winter window. He’s gone from being valued at around £80m to now being available, it seems, for around half or less than that.
For Liverpool, it would be another addition to the front three. They are full of pace in that area as it is, so if they get Traore, they’ll have serious options.
With Leeds, you can see why Bielsa likes him. He loves his wingers to be direct and get at players. He also loves some speed, given his Leeds side play so quickly on the counter-attack.
Whatever happens, this is likely not the end of hearing about Traore. If he does leave Wolves, then a bidding war could commence. Leeds and Liverpool, then, will be on red alert here.
