Barcelona and Liverpool are in the running for Adama Traore and the Reds have finally realised their interest in him by making an official approach.
Liverpool only seem to be getting better and their Premier League title evidenced so. Their fans are in a for a special treat this time around. After an eternity worth’s link between Jurgen Klopp and the flying winger in Adama Traore, the heads at Anfield have finally decided to bid for the Spanish winger, as per the Express.
The deal is likely to go through as Liverpool have tasted immense success over the past 12 months, having won the UEFA Champions League last time around, and completing a total domination in the race to the PL title.
Wolves have been more than impressive this season, sitting on the sixth position, just behind Manchester United on goal difference. Their attack has been a treat to watch this season with Traore being dubbed as an “absolute nightmare for the defenders”. This is solely because of his ball control and pace.
In addition to that, the 24 year-old has been riding on the back of an impressive display in his last two games. It was his assists that helped his side win the games against West Ham and Bournemouth.
Moreover, the Wolves boss, Nuno Espirito Santo recently admitted to being unaware of what the future holds for the former Barca winger, very well confirming the fact that Traore hasn’t exactly made up his mind about staying at Molineux next season.
Traore, with his pace in particular and his skill-set, will fit in perfectly into the team dynamics of Liverpool. The impact on COVID-19 on the financial reserves of clubs all around the world has been significant and that might just put a limit on Liverpool’s pursuit. But having said that, given the current situation any decent bid ought to be substantial enough.
What must be noted is that La Liga outfit Barcelona are also keen on landing the player and it may be a tussle. However, the Reds definitely hold financial supremacy over their Catalan counterparts and this deal should be a comfortable one for them to secure.
