Liverpool and Manchester City ‘set to battle it out for the signing of Adama Traore’

Wolves are reportedly considering whether to cash in on star player Adama Traore with both Liverpool and Manchester City reportedly interested.

The club’s owners Fosun International are believed to have been heavily impacted by covid-19 and are looking to raise funds.

Now the Daily Mirror have reported that boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been told he needs to raise transfer funds and the club may have to be forced into selling the player.

The report states that the Portuguese manager is ‘desperate’ to hold onto top goalscorer Raul Jimenez but is prepared to listen to offers for Traore.

Both Liverpool and Manchester City have both expressed an interest in the speedy winger and Wolves are reportedly hoping that either of the two giants put in a substantial bid for the 24-year-old.

Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool and runners-up Manchester City both regard Traore, who is rated as the fastest player in the top flight, as an impact player who could improve their squads and challenge for a starting berth.

The Spaniard destroyed Manchester City in both of Wolves’ league wins against Pep Guardiola’s side last season, scoring three goals across the two games. 

Wolves were perhaps unfortunate not to get a result against Liverpool but Traore again starred against Jurgen Klopp’s side, famously giving Andy Robertson one of his toughest games in a Reds’ shirt.

Traore joined Wolves in 2018 for £18m from Middlesbrough having previously played for Aston Villa and Barcelona.

If Wolves should sell him it would take a substantially larger off to tempt the West Midlands club to sell one of their star assets.
