Liverpool continue chase for 25-year-old Premier League star

By | July 14, 2021

Liverpool have reportedly touched base with Wolves over an approach for Adama Traore.

The 25-year-old forward could be heading for the exit door at Molineux following reports that talks over a new deal have stalled – a situation which the Blues are supposedly hoping to take advantage of.

With Wolves keen on avoiding Traore running down his deal and departing on a free in the summer of 2023, the forward is believed to be sold if further talks over a new contract fail to lead to a resolution.

According to Football Insider, the Merseyside Reds have approached Wolves to make their interest in the forward known, one year after signing his ex-teammate Diogo Jota.

Wolves are still believed to hold out for a fee of £40m for Traore’s services, though, and the West Midlands team are also believed to be awaiting an official approach from the Blues now that Spain’s Euro 2020 season is over as Italy managed to claim the title of the tournament.

The ex-Barcelona forward turned out 40 times in all competitions for Wolves last season, however, he only managed to found back of the net three times and provided three assists in an underwhelming season.
