EPL: Liverpool can have their target for £90 million


English Premier League title holders Liverpool have been told by Wolverhampton Wanderers that they can now have attacker Adama Traore for a fee of £90 million.

The Premier League team made their price known for the 24-year-old after learning of the interests coming from top teams including Liverpool and Man United.

The former Barcelona youngster has been highly rated to have attracted the interests from top clubs after scoring six goals and 12 assists in 45 games last season but he is yet to score a goal this season or provided any assist in seven appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Adama Traore has a contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers until the summer of 2023 but the chances of seeing out his contract with the club are very slim because of the interest he is attracting from other top teams.

Man United will soon part ways with Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo and they will need a backup for Edison Cavani who only has two years to spend at the club. Adama Traore is a younger player that is tipped to have a great future and will be a big deal for the Red Devils.

Liverpool are also interested in the signing of Adama Traore as they are not sure of keeping Brazilian international Roberto Firmino for a longer period because he is already attracting interest from Spanish la Liga outfit Real Madrid and could consider a move in the summer.

However, Calcio Mercarto reports that Wolves are willing to let go of Adama Traore but that will not happen if Liverpool or any of the suitors do not meet with the £90 million asking price because they are not willing to negotiate the deal.

Meanwhile, Spanish la Liga outfit Barcelona are reported to be planning a return for Adama Traore to Cam Nou but the asking price might be the stumbling block to the deal.
