According to a recent report by SoccerLink (translated by The Liverpool Echo), Liverpool are showing interest in acquiring the services of Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The same source has also claimed that the Reds will face stiff competition from Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain in pursuit of the Premier League rising star.

However, Wolves are set to demand £75m for their prized asset so that they can fend off interest from other top clubs in England (via The Daily Star).

Traore’s Spectacular Form At Wolves This Season

Traore has enjoyed a fantastic campaign at the Molineux Stadium so far after putting in several eye-catching displays under Nuno Espirito Santo’s tutelage in the Premier League. He has scored five goals and provided ten assists in 35 matches for the West Midlands outfit this term across all competitions.

The former Barcelona wing wizard has averaged 1.3 tackles, 1.2 shots, 1.4 key passes and 5.7 dribbles per game in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored). He has also represented the Spanish national side in various youth levels but is yet to earn his first international cap for his nation.

What Does Adama Offer On The Field?

Traore is one of the best dribblers in European football because of his blistering speed and remarkable upper body strength that allows him to make driving runs at the heart of the opposition defence. His two match-winning displays against the champions of England, Manchester City, should serve as proof of his maturity and overall development this season.

Is Traore The Right Fit For The European Champions?

Recruiting an athlete like Traore would be a massive coup for the Reds if Jurgen Klopp can find a way to bring him to Anfield in the future. However, paying £75m for such a raw talent will be a huge gamble as he can be a bit inconsistent at times when he is struggling to generate confidence in the final third.

At the same time, one can argue that Traore has the pace and the power to add more goals to the Liverpool frontline. Furthermore, he could improve the overall quality of the Reds squad that might help them compete for multiple trophies in the coming years. Hence, the Spaniard will be a decent fit for the Merseyside club as Klopp will be the perfect manager to unlock his true potential and get the best out of him at the highest level.
