€70.7million speed demon ready to agree Liverpool move and Jurgen Klopp is ‘fixated’ on the attacker

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly a huge fan of Adama Traore’s and the Wolves forward is ready to agree on a move to Anfield, according to El Nacional.

The Spaniard is one of the most divisive figures in the Premier League. Some think he’s not worth the money Wolves are demanding due to his lack of end product while others think his speed, strength and relentless attitude are brilliant.

It’s a debate that will wage on until he retires unless he can add regular goals and assists to his game. Unfortunately, he has been unable to do so thus far but it seems as though Jurgen Klopp wants him anyway.

According to Catalonian publishers El Nacional, the Reds manager is ‘fixated’ on bringing the La Masia graduate to Anfield and Wolves, who last year tried to get £60m (€70.7m) for Traore, have increased contacts with the Reds.

Traore would be a sensational squad option – nothing more

Whether or not you think Traore would be better suited to playing as a winger in rugby, he would likely be a sensational option off the bench for Liverpool when they need a goal or to tire out a team when they need to see out a win.

Mohamed Salah scored in the 76th minute against Manchester City and Diogo Jota came off just a few minutes before for Roberto Firmino but the Brazilian offered very little but Traore might have helped the Reds win that game with his pace and ability to keep City occupied at the top end of the pitch.

It’s pointless to deal in hypotheticals but I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing Traore joining the club for the right price and as a squad option as he would give Klopp exactly what he needs in terms of squad rotation and in-game management.

Divock Origi, Takumi Minamini and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have battled to make any real impact at Liverpool over the last 18 months and to have someone with Traore’s forward drive would be great.
