Wolves Open To Offers For Speedster That Klopp Was Keen To Sign: Should Liverpool Reignite Interest?

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.

According to a recent report by the Daily Mail, Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be willing to listen to offers for the services of their £70m rated Spanish attacker Adama Traore. The report suggests that the club from Black Country are under no pressure to necessarily sell their man, but that they are yet to discount the idea of cashing in on him if the right offer arrives. It goes without saying that the price the former Barcelona man will command would undoubtedly be large even by the Premier League’s generally exorbitant standards.

Although it has been clarified that Wolves are willing to sell Liverpool target Adama Traore, Nuno Espírito Santo is still said to be a big fan of the attacker’s abilities. It was an exclusive report by the Daily Mirror in June that reported Liverpool’s interest in the Wolves man, and it even went to the extent of saying that Jurgen Klopp was ‘desperate’ to acquire the trickster. Despite the report claiming that Liverpool were scheming up a move at the time, nothing ended up taking shape. With Wolves now reportedly willing to listen to offers, the German mastermind could be handed the opportunity to pounce.

What Is Liverpool’s Attacking Situation?

The Anfield club have one of the simpler attacking situations in the division, in that they have three regular forwards who play more or less every fixture. The real concern though is the alarming lack of depth that seems to be running through the spine of this Reds squad. While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have all been sensational in their own right, it must be considered that one injury has the potential to collapse their entire season. The likes of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri have failed to deliver on a consistent basis, while winter acquisition Takumi Minamino is yet to really settle into life across the channel.

What Makes Adama Traore An Attractive Option For Liverpool?

The Spaniard is among the most dangerous wingers in the world on his day, and that’s underplaying the kind of havoc he can wreak on a slightly weaker defence-line. When the speedster first burst onto the scene playing for Middlesbrough, all he boasted was raw pace, and the lack of end-product made it seem to many like he may be a lost cause. A few years down the line and the reborn and rejuvenated Wolverhampton Wanderers man is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after wingers in the entire continent.

Capable of playing as an out and out winger or as a wing-back if required, the former Barcelona man offers unbelievable dribbling and ball-carrying skills. Not only is he capable of beating a man one-on-one, but Traore has the quality necessary to take on an entire defence-line and still come out on top.

Explosively quick when in full-flow, it’s safe to say that once the Spaniard opens his taps, there are very few players in world football who would even be able to keep up with him. Having more recently added strong finishing and some much-needed directness to his game as well, Adama Traore is gradually beginning to look like the finished product.

Wolves Are Willing To Sell Liverpool Target Adama Traore: Should Klopp Look To Bring Him In?

If the results that the German tactician has produced with the likes of Salah and Mane are anything to go by, then a move to Anfield would certainly help Adama Traore send his career trajectory in the right direction. Despite the almost mind-numbing skill and speed that he offers, it must be conceded that the Spaniard still does have a rough side to his game. Jurgen Klopp’s man-management and general player development could be the best way to polish the gem that Traore is and bring out the best that he can be.

The £70m price tag could form the Anfield side’s biggest problem, and if they’re able to surpass that, then it’s safe to say that signing Adama Traore from Wolves would be quite the coup.
