Adama Traore presents Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp with intriguing transfer question amid fresh links
Jurgen Klopp famously declared Adama Traore to be “unplayable” at times but is that enough for the Liverpool manager to make a move for the Wolverhampton Wanderers man?
Fresh reports today claim that Klopp is reviving his interest in long-term transfer target Adama Traore who could leave Molineux this summer.
Liverpool have been linked with a potential big money transfer for the Spain international in the past but despite plenty of chatter, a switch to Anfield has never looked particularly close to actually being on the cards.
While some deals can be protracted like Traore’s international team-mate Thiago Alcantara’s long-running saga last summer before he swapped Bayern Munich for the Reds, at other times things can move fast in football and situations can dramatically alter in a short space of time with fellow Wolves wide man Diogo Jota’s switch to Merseyside at the start of last season a case in point.
