Liverpool are yet to make a marquee signing ahead of the new season, but exciting links continue to bounce around.
The Reds have signed just one senior player so far this window – left-back Kostas Tsimikas who arrived from Olympiakos last month for £11.7million (via BBC Sport). However, they are still interested in several big names, with one being Adama Traore.
Should Liverpool sign Adama Traore?
The Wolves winger has attracted a lot of attention following his impressive 2019/20 campaign. Despite coming off the bench ten times out of the 37 Premier League appearances he made, Traore contributed four goals and nine assists for the Midlands side (via Transfermarkt).
Whilst Liverpool aren’t lacking goals from the wings, they are still fond of the Spanish playmaker. A recent update from Ian Doyle (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), claims Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of Traore, but his asking price would prove too expensive to make a move this window.
Indeed, a SoccerLink report from January (via TEAMtalk), claims Wolves would be looking for about £75million for the 24-year-old.
The news has divided the Liverpool fanbase, with many not even surprised to hear that the club is lacking funds to make a move for Traore. One supporter has remained hopeful however, and has admitted they ‘want him over Thiago’.
Thiago Alcantara is another big target on Klopp’s radar, but an official bid for his services is yet to be made.

Him and Thiago make us the greatest footballing team of all time, shame our owners don't care at all. https://t.co/Y6UKVPxXGy

What a way to downplay Klopp’s brilliance. He could do better with a generous owner

I would just like to know who is not too expensive

Getting extremely boring this, just don’t even bother mentioning players. They’re all going to be too expensive.
