Liverpool have assembled one of the strongest squads in world football in recent seasons. The Reds have amassed an incredible 196 points across the last two campaigns with only 32 points dropped. Despite the success the club have enjoyed, there isn’t a tremendous amount of depth in the first team, something that could do with addressing. According to Calciomercato, Liverpool target Adama Traore has been offered to Juventus. The Reds should move next season.
Liverpool and Traore
There have been rumours of Liverpool being interested in Adama Traore for a while now.
Back in January 90min reported that the Reds were considering a move for the ex-Barcelona winger.
More recently the Liverpool ECHO claimed that Jürgen Klopp is a great admirer of the winger and the club still hold an interest in the Wolves wide man.
Traore offered to Juventus
According to CalcioMercato in Italy, Adama Traore has been offered to Juventus for €70m (£63m).
The Italian side are said to have been scared off by the lofty transfer fee, as have Liverpool and Manchester City.
Super agent Jorge Mendes is claimed to have been looking to move the winger on and is thought to be working hard to find a solution.
Reds should move next season
Adama Traore’s contract expires in 2023, his value will be decreasing year on year.
Wolves will be worried that they could be pricing him out of a move, eventually leading to the player looking to leave the club on a free transfer.
If the midlands club don’t sell him next summer then the following summer they are in a significantly weaker position, they will know in the summer of 2022 that they will be backed into a corner over a price, he is young enough for clubs to just wait a further six months to bag him on a free transfer.
The Reds’ front three is ageing together, it would make sense for Liverpool to pursue Traore next summer so that he is ready to step up in a couple of years when Mo Salah enters his 30s.
Next season Wolves should hopefully budge on their huge £63m asking price.
