Liverpool, alongside Manchester United and Manchester City are all thought to be interested in making a move for Traore. While the Premier League trio are also facing competition from European heavyweights Barcelona and Juventus, per Calciomercato, via the Daily Mail.
Wolves are thought to have placed a £90 million valuation on the Spain international to ensure they get the best possible fee for the dynamic 24-year-old, per Calciomercato, via the Daily Mail. However, it would be a surprise if Liverpool spent that kind of money on another wide forward after investing £40 million in Diogo Jota from Wolves only this summer.
Traore enjoyed an excellent season in the Premier League last term. The Spain international averaged 3.8 successful dribbles per game, as well as making 0.8 key passes and 1.5 tackles (Sofascore). That has led to increased interest in the versatile forward who has played in a wing-back role at times for Wolves.
Liverpool fans urge Reds to consider Adama Traore alternatives
Many Liverpool fans were keen to point out that £90 million would be far too much to pay for Traore, and that for that sort of fee they should instead be eyeing up the likes of Jadon Sancho. While others pointed out the madness of paying so much for a player likely to start out as a back-up, calling it ‘crazy’…
Rather have Sancho for that price, we don’t actually need another winger I would rather get top CF Haaland

No way. He slows down the play by trying to dribble past the entire team. Our attackers thrive on quick movement of the ball.

Anything above £20m as an option off the bench would be a waste of money.
