Liverpool may have one of the best starting lineups in world football. The Reds starting XI has been crowned European Champions, World Champions and Premier League champions in the last year. Despite the first choices’ successes there isn’t much strength in depth at Anfield, some have debated whether Jürgen Klopp will invest in backup forwards. According to The Times Liverpool would have to fork out £135m to sign reported target Adama Traore.

Hitting his stride

Adama Traore has finally shown what he can do this season. The 24-year-old is a product of the Barcelona academy and for years has threatened to realise his enormous potential.

This campaign has seen the Spaniard bag four goals and nine assists for Wolves in what has been a strong season for Nuno’s side.

The winger actually terrorised Liverpool at Molineux, bagging an assist and putting in one of his best performances of the season as the Reds snatched a 2-1 victory in the Midlands.

A huge price tag

According to The Times Liverpool would have to pay an enormous £135m to bag Adama Traore – FourFourTwo are just one of a number of outlets to link the Reds with the winger.

The report has alleged that the Wolves winger would cost even more than is being touted for Bundesliga sensation Jadon Sancho.

 

At 24-years-old Traore is really starting to hit his stride, if the report is accurate then Wolves must be worried that they could lose a potential world class player just before he reaches his prime.

What RTK has to say

We just can’t see Liverpool signing Adama Traore any time soon. If the Reds were to bring in the Wolves winger then it would take a pretty serious departure from the club’s transfer policy and would likely be precipitated by one of our current wingers leaving first.

Whilst the Spaniard is undoubtedly a talented footballer the Reds don’t need to be spending £135m on a player who is unlikely to be a first choice for the next few seasons at least.

This seems like a price tag set to ward off any potential suitors, Wolves want to keep ahold of their crown jewel just a little while longer.
