Liverpool have reignited their interest in Wolves flyer Adama Traore, according to reports in France; here’s what Jurgen Klopp said about the speedster in January.
Wolves reportedly placed a sky-high transfer fee on the head of Traore amid claims Liverpool had joined the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in keeping tabs on the “unplayable” Spanish winger in January.
Traore has taken his game to another level this season scoring six times and weighing in with seven assists for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Such form has seen him linked with the world’s biggest sides, with the player finally fulfilling his early potential after for so long showing glimpses of his form but rarely producing it week-in, week-out at the highest level.
Discussing his aspirations to return to LaLiga at some point in the future, Traore said earlier this year: “A return to Barca? I don’t bear any grudges.
“But equally, if Real Madrid called me I would go there too. I was (at Barcelona) for 10 years, and I have very good memories.”
Traore gave Liverpool a torrid time with another stellar performance which earned him the man of the match award and almost saw the champions-elect give up on their unbeaten record so far this season and after the game, the former Barcelona youngster earned high acclaim from Klopp.
Klopp told BBC Sport: “He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
SoccerLink claimed that because of the interest from other clubs, Wolves had put a £75million price tag on his head.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea were the other Premier League clubs credited with an interest, while he is on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar.
There is little pressure on Wolves to sell unless they get his asking price with the 24-year-old contracted to the club until the summer of 2023.
The news will likely be welcomed by Wolves boss Nuno who has moulded Traore in a genuine world-class winger.
Speaking after his Man of the Match display against Liverpool, Nuno said of the Spaniard: “He is unique. He has stuff that nobody else has. And talent. There is a lot of space to grow.”
