Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Wolves forward Adama Traore next summer as they plan ahead to bolster their squad.
The report claims that Wolves are demanding a fee of €70m for the former Barcelona man Adama, but it is not stated whether or not Liverpool would be willing to meet their demands.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Would Adama be a good addition to Liverpool’s squad? Yes. The Spanish international would add variety and depth to Liverpool’s attacking options and, at 24, he still has room to develop and improve under a coach like Klopp.
Last season in the Premier League, Adama produced an impressive four goals and nine assists for Wolves as he recorded a WhoScored rating of 7.49. This was the third-highest rating in the division, with only Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira ahead of him – with Riyad Mahrez and Sadio Mane just behind Adama.
He has also had a strong start to the current campaign, with a rating of 7.21 across the first four Premier League matches. Adama has been deployed as a wing-back in two of his appearances, highlighting the versatility he could offer Liverpool if he arrived at Anfield – as he can play in defence and further forward on the wing. This could offer Klopp a variety of options in how to set his side up with Adama in the team and give him a replacement for Trent Alexander-Arnold if he was ever unavailable.
