TOP STORY: Liverpool tracking Spain’s Traore
Liverpool could be ready to make their next move in the transfer market with Football Insider reporting that the club have enquired about Adama Traore.
The report claims that Jurgen Klopp is keen on the Wolves winger who was linked with a move back in 2020 after an impressive campaign but, after scoring just two goals and two assists last season in 37 appearances, Liverpool could now look to negotiate a lower price than the £35 million that was rumoured back in January.
While Traore played just 13 minutes of Spain’s Euro 2020 campaign against Slovakia before his nation bowed out on penalties to Italy on Tuesday night, it is understood that the Reds believe the Wolves star could add versatility to the front three, having impressed when playing on both sides of the pitch.
The 25-year-old would join Diogo Jota, who made the move from Wolves to Liverpool last summer for £41m.
