Stan Collymore has urged Liverpool to make a move for Adama Traore.
The Spaniard has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months after a stellar season with Wolves. Whilst his six goals and 10 assists in all competitions may not be amongst the very best in the Premier League, they are still eye-catching figures. However, it is his ability to beat players – he has completed 5.2 dribbles per match in the top flight, more than any other player – and his frightening pace that has made him one of the most exciting talents in England.
Collymore told The Daily Mirror (print edition, May 26, page 47):
“I like the Traore to Liverpool rumour.
“Traore was poor at Aston Villa but was still a kid then. It was Tony Pulis who breathed new life into him at Middlesbrough.
“The Spaniard has been a revelation at Wolves and has gone from a 20-minute impact substitute to a player who offers good delivery and frightening pace. He could bring an extra dimension to the Champions elect.”
Liverpool have seen first hand just how good Traore can be. He averaged a WhoScored rating of more than seven in each of the two matches against them this season, for example, whilst his three goals and one assist against Manchester City this term show just how good he can be in the biggest matches.
Would you like to sign Traore?
Valued at £70m (as per Le10 Sport via talkSPORT), this is not a player who will come particularly cheap for Jurgen Klopp. However, as Collymore explains, he has certain qualities that could be worth their weight in gold.
