Liverpool continue chase for 24-year-old Spanish wing wizard

By | January 22, 2021

Liverpool have rejoined the hunt to sign Wolves forward Adama Traore amid interest from other sides, according to reports.

The Spaniard signed for Wolves in August 2018 from Middlesbrough in a deal worth around £18 million and has made a big impact at the Molineux outfit.

Adama managed to contribute four goals and nine assists in the English top-flight last term but his form has taken a hit this campaign.

The 24-year-old star has one goal contribution in the division this season and has had to come off the bench in seven of his 18 matches.

Traore’s deal expires in 2023 and his limited time on the pitch has allegedly seen him stall over signing a fresh deal at Wolves.

A report in December stated that Leeds United were planning an offer in 2021 for Traore with Jurgen Klopp’s side also said to be interested.

The Reds were reportedly put off landing Traore last summer by Wolves’ huge demands for him, with reports at the time quoting a €70 million asking price.

However, Sport (via Sport Witness) now reckon that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side only want around €40 million for his services with the Anfield club keen again.

The Portuguese manager is ‘insisting’ that Traore stays but the player is apparently worried that his current form will keep the star out of the Spain squad for the European Championship in the summer.

Meantime, Mohamed Simakan has rejected interest from Liverpool as the star prepares to move to RB Leipzig, reports in Germany say.

He has impressed at centre-back for Strasbourg this campaign and has been linked with a move to the Reds.

But Sky Sport Germany states the France youth international has agreed to personal terms with Bundesliga outfit.
