Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Adama Traore was linked with Liverpool in January, but he’s seen his own form drop off ever since the transfer window shut.
Football publication 90min reported in January that the Spaniard was attracting interest from Liverpool, Manchester City and Barcelona.
The report explained that any approaches were expected to be put on hold until the summer and that it would take £70million to prize him away from Molineux.
Traore has played eight games across all competitions since the close of the January window, scoring just one goal and supplying zero assists in that time.
The 24-year-old has had a considerable drop off in the recent months from the scintillating form he was showing in the first half of the campaign.
He’s a right-winger blessed with tremendous pace, strength and trickery, something that on his day makes him unplayable for an opponent.
His record for this season is six goals and 10 assists in 43 matches across all competitions.
TBR View – Is Liverpool target Traore worth £70m
Traore is arguably enjoying his best individual season to date in terms of output, but once again there has been patches of inconsistency and that’s something he’s been guilty of throughout his career.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will surely need to spend big to find genuine competition for his wide stars Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
But £70million on Traore seems a little far-fetched at this stage and is perhaps one transfer that the Merseyside club should stay clear from.
