Liverpool are ‘on the verge’ of signing Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Adama Traore, according to reports – and some of the club’s supporters have given their reaction on Twitter.
According to the Spanish publication El Gol Digital, the Reds are closing in on the right-winger and a move could be imminent.
Traore to Liverpool?
It is claimed that Traore has a number of other suitors, although Liverpool are reportedly in the driving seat in regards to a move.
Traore, 25, is a wide-man renowned for his physical attributes, strength and blistering pace.
The former Barcelona man is predominantly utilised on the right and would likely be Mohamed Salah’s understudy should he indeed end up at Anfield.

Traore, who has been capped five-times for the Spanish national team, has a number of glaringly attractive qualities that understandably have warranted interest from Liverpool’s part, notably his potential.
His talents are blindingly obvious, too. He is unbelievably athletic and is regarded as one of the quickest players on the planet.
In fact, he’s exactly the kind of player Jurgen Klopp has worked wonders with in the past. Just look at how he transformed the likes of Andy Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Also, The Athletic recently reported that Liverpool want ‘supplemental’ forwards this summer, as opposed to world-renowned superstars. Traore certainly fits the bill in that regard.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media have given their take on reports that Traore could be Anfield-bound in the coming months.
While his record of just one goal and one assist this season indeed raises concerns, many identify the qualities of Traore’s game that could be taken to the next level under a world-class coach such as Klopp.
