Former Wolves midfielder and now current loan chief Seyi Olofinjana has said that Adama Traore can leave Wolves ‘any day’ amidst reported interest from Liverpool.
The Reds are said to be interested in the Spaniard, who could cost them £60m, after he has impressed this season. He has managed six goals and 10 assists in all competitions, but it is his pace and dribbling ability that has arguably been the most exciting this term – he has 5.2 completed dribbles per match so far in the Premier League, more than any other player.
Speaking to Goal.com, the 39-year-old did little to quash rumours of a move, saying:
“He is a good player and we’ve all seen what he is capable of doing. His sheer pace, power, goalscoring stint, skills on the ball and also running the length of the pitch.
“He’s been doing it for the past few seasons, so we are very much aware of what he brings to the table. In terms of what will happen to him going forward, the league has not ended, so we need to wait for that.
“We can’t ignore the fact that he has done very well for the club.
“Anybody can leave Wolves, he came from somewhere and he can leave any day.
“Regarding genuine transfer interest in our players, there are procedures and policies that we consider as a club, they tell us whether it is the right step for us or not.”
Jurgen Klopp, who is said to have personally called the winger in a bid to discuss his future, will be delighted with these comments if Traore is indeed on the Anfield outfit’s radar. As one of the most explosive players in the Premier League, he would be an asset to any top side, even runaway leaders Liverpool.
Would you like to sign Traore?
These comments are unlikely to mean that Wolves would be willing to let the 24-year-old move on without a fight, although it does seem to indicate that they are open to the possibility of letting him depart.
