Liverpool are reportedly planning an audacious swoop for a long-standing in Adama Traore with the Star reporting that the Reds are plotting a £30m bid for the Wolves attacker.

The Star report that Jurgen Klopp is a ‘big admirer’ of the lightning-fast winger, which seems to have been the case for a few years now, with the Liverpool boss even hailing Traore as ‘unplayable’ once.

Liverpool were quoted £60m when they showed interest in Traore 18 months ago but they appear to be confident in landing the wide-man for considerably less.

Whilst Wolves wish to keep hold of the 25-year-old, the Star note that the pandemic’s impact on clubs’ finances, Traore’s shaky form last season and injury troubles have cut his value down.

Adama Traore was inconsistent last term in a season hindered by injury troubles.

Traore contributed two goals and three assists in 37 Premier League appearances last season, the Wolves star was hindered by the recurring problem of a dislocated shoulder.

The Barcelona academy graduate showed incredible toughness to continue playing in a campaign that was sidetracked by that issue, but unfortunately it led to some lesser showings from the ace.

Nonetheless, Traore could be an ideal fit for Klopp’s counter-attacking side with his blistering pace, but the Star note that the Spain international would not accept the impact substitute role that would likely come with a move to Liverpool, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino expected to be the starting trio for the Reds once more.
