In a recent report, The Daily Star mentioned that Liverpool are hoping to land Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore for £30m during this summer transfer window. It is understood that the Reds are eyeing a cut-price move to bring the Spanish speedster to Anfield in this off-season (via The Daily Star).
Traore’s Up And Down Season In English Football
Traore had an inconsistent campaign at the Molineux Stadium as he struggled to be decisive in the attacking end of the field. The 25-year-old appeared in 41 matches for the West Midlands side last season, scoring three goals and providing three assists across all fronts.
Despite his inconsistent numbers in the final third, Traore deserves credit for finding other ways to help his team after he averaged 1.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and 4.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. He even distributed the ball relatively well based on his pass success rate of 76.3% in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored)
The Spanish sensation has impressed in patches but has often lacked the cutting edge in front of the opposition goal. However, a world-class manager like Jurgen Klopp could be the ideal man to oversee Traore’s development in the coming seasons, which makes Liverpool an attractive destination for the player.
Will Traore Be A Good Option For The Reds?
Traore is one of the quickest players in European football and can beat his marker with ease by turning on the afterburners out on the wide areas. He has got the ability to dribble past multiple defenders and can even deliver some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty box.
However, the six-time Spain international needs to figure out a way to be more clinical in the attacking third if he wants to be a success story at the highest level. At 25, Traore is not a kid anymore, so he needs to grow up and take his game to another level or else fade away into mediocrity.
We can expect the Wolves star to add plenty of pace and power to Klopp’s attack if the Reds can find a way to get him on board during this summer transfer period. He is an exceptional talent who could serve as an ideal back-up to the likes of Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah at Anfield over the next few years. As long as Traore is available on a cut-price fee this summer, Liverpool should definitely consider recruiting him before the start of the new campaign.
