Report: Wolves rival Liverpool and Leeds for Lucas Ocampos
Wolverhampton Wanderers are rivalling Liverpool for Lucas Ocampos, according to La Razon, while Leeds United have also been linked with the attacker this week.
Ocampos is attracting attention having scored seven goals in all competitions for Sevilla this season. He is still some way short however, of matching his tally of 17 strikes last year.
The Daily Mail reported in recent days that Leeds and Liverpool are both keen on the 26-year-old. That report also noted that his contract includes a £56 million release clause.
La Razón have also suggested that Liverpool are interested. But they add that Wolves are in the running to land the Argentinian.
It is noted that Sevilla will sanction a big-money exit this summer. And while Jules Kounde is reportedly the main contender to go, Ocampos is an option due to his release clause.
La Razon adds that Wolves would have no problem triggering that clause, particularly if they sell Adama Traore.

Judging by various reports, Leeds have two players in this particular saga on their radar. As well as Ocampos, they are apparently one of the teams keen on Adama.
Eurosport reported in February that a summer bid for the Wolves winger from Marcelo Bielsa’s side is likely.
So while they may not welcome the additional competition for Ocampos, they may be interested in seeing what the implications are for Adama at Molineux.
