TRANSFERS: Wolves set whopping price for Adama Traore amid Liverpool interest

According to Football Insider, Wolves have set a whopping £70m transfer valuation of star winger Adama Traore amid interest from champions elect, Liverpool.

His high energy, incredibly fast style of play has been turning heads for a few years now – but he’s always struggled in the final third in terms of production.

However, he seems to have put those worries behind him this season. Now, he seems like the full package. He can run (VERY quickly), he can dribble, he can pass, he can shoot and he can deliver some wicked balls into the area.

All-in-all, Traore has bagged six goals and ten assists during the 19/20 season from his 22 league starts and 43 appearances in all competition.

He’s been vital to everything Wolves have done this season. Even for those goals he doesn’t get a registered goal or assist, he tends to be key to the move in some way.

Be it moving the ball from back to front with his blistering pace, or putting a cross to the back post to be laid off for somebody else, he’s nearly always involved somehow.

Now, after a very good season on the pitch, Liverpool have set their sights on the Spanish winger.

Football Insider report that Liverpool have targeted Traore as a potential replacement for either Sadio Mane or Mo Salah – should they lose either one during the next window, whenever that may be.

Wolves reportedly value the star at over four times the £18m fee they paid to sign him from Middlesbrough back in 2018.

Back in January, Liverpool snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at Molineux. All game long, Adama Traore had been a thorn in the side of that Liverpool defence -Andy Robertson and even Virgil Van Dijk just couldn’t handle him.

Whether that’s the game that peaked the interest of Liverpool scouts and manager Jurgen Klopp or not, it’s the best chance they’ve had to see him in action – and he was brilliant.

As for his worth, we normally like to use TransferMarkt for player valuations. The German football site values Adama Traore at £28m which, for me, is far too low.

After the season he’s had, there’s no way Wolves will let him go for any less than £50m. Wolves don’t have financial worries, so they have no need to sell him for financial purposes.

I’m sure the £70m pricetag is there merely to try and ward off the interest from the likes of Liverpool. If Wolves are to receive an offer north of £50m, they might very well consider it.

The other thing to consider is the player himself, if his head gets turned and he wants to move on, they might as well take the money then and there before his form drops off a cliff and takes his valuation with it.
