Adama Traore Wolves

Liverpool in the race to sign a Premier League ace

Adama Traore reportedly is among the transfer targets of the Premier League top-flight clubs Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

The Wolves star has shown a great improvement this season and is among the most wanted players this season as he scored four goals and made 7 assists.

Adama Traore, who joined Wolves just two seasons ago, is now among the regular starters for Nuno's side. The Spaniard made a move from Middlesbrough in 2018 for the initial fee of £18 million.

Many reports claim that Premier League heavyweights such as Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are interested in signing the player this summer.

Liverpool are interested in bringing more attacking minded forward player in order to give Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah more competition.

Traore might turn out to be an upgrade for Xherdan Shaqiri, who has been linked with a move to Roma and Sevilla recently.

Manchester United are also in the market for a right-winger and they have been targeting Jadon Sancho for a long time, but the Borussia Dortmund star price is set too high, £100m.

Adama Traore on the other hand, might turn out to be the perfect addition for the Red Devils and his price is not that high, as he is estimated at around £70 m.

However, Manchester City is also in the hunt for a new forward player and this season it is believed that Traore impressed Pep Guardiola as he totally destroyed the Citizens defence.

The Wolves star scored twice in the 2-0 win over City in October, and in the reverse fixture made an assist and scored a goal.

Leroy Sane is said to join Bayern Munich this summer as the Bundesliga giants have been linked with the German since the last summer transfer window.

Adama Traore had struggles with finding his place in the first team when he played for Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, but since he joined Nuno's side he has flourished.

“Nuno has been a massive figure for me. It’s the confidence he gives me,'' said Traore in an interview for The Mirror.

“From the first day I came to Wolves he just made me feel that he believes I can take on any player and make them struggle.

“A lot has changed for me but the football ability has always been there. It’s just a little bit of adjusting."
