Exclusive: Paul Stewart does not think Liverpool should sign Wolves’ Adama Traore - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Paul Stewart does not think transfer target Adama Traore is good enough to make Liverpool title challengers again.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were unable to defend their first-ever Premier League crown as they finished 17 points adrift of last season’s champions Manchester City.

Klopp is looking to bolster his squad in a bid to regain the trophy in the upcoming campaign, but he has already seen key midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum leave for Paris Saint-Germain.

Is Adama Traore good enough for Liverpool?

Yes

Among those being linked with a switch to Anfield is Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore, with Liverpool reportedly willing to pay £25million for his services.

Traore, who was a member of Spain’s Euro 2020 squad as they reached the semi-finals before going out to eventual winners Italy, made 41 appearances for Wolves last season but only found the back of the net three times.

The 25-year-old’s pace, however, has led to a host of clubs taking an interest this summer, with Liverpool being joined in the race by Chelsea and West Ham United.

Stewart, who had a four-year spell at Anfield during his playing days, feels Traore is not good enough to dislodge Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino or Mohamed Salah from Klopp’s preferred line-up.

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “I think Traore would be in and out of the team. You could bring him on with 30 minutes to go and he has that pace and impact. But, if you play him from the start, he goes missing in games.

“I’m not surprised clubs are coming in for him because of his potential but Liverpool need more than him if they’re going to compete again.”
