Adama Traore
Adama Traore has enjoyed the best season of his professional career.

Liverpool could certainly do with another quality attacker to provide better competition to their fierce trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

The Reds certainly won’t be willing to pay anything remotely close to Wolves’ valuation of Traore, especially after they priced out of a move for Timo Werner, as per Sky Sports – with the Germany international instead sealing a move to Chelsea.

Traore has bagged four goals and chipped in with an amazing nine assists in 35 Premier League appearances this season, this has been the 24-year-old’s best campaign of his career to date.

Wolves are certainly right to slap such a price-tag on the skilful attacker, Traore has caused serious problems to some of the top-flight’s best defenders over the last year.
