Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is reportedly eyeing up a surprise potential transfer deal for Wolves winger Adama Traore.
The Spain international is a fine player on his day but can be a little inconsistent, and it’s also suggested that Blues boss Tuchel could try playing him in a new position if he joins, according to the Telegraph.
The report states that Tuchel is interested in Traore as providing competition for Reece James at right wing-back, which does seem like a role he could play well, even if he’s spent most of his career further forward.
Traore has notably been linked with Liverpool on a few occasions, most recently by Sport, and he could be an important addition at Anfield as well.
The Reds could do with changing things in their attack this summer after a major dip in form from Sadio Mane in recent times, and Traore could give them something different out wide.
The 25-year-old could be available for around £30million, as previously reported by Football Insider, so he could end up being a bargain for both these clubs.
The Telegraph claim that Chelsea could end up with as much as £200m to spend this summer, though that will depend on how successful they are in offloading some players too.
