Report: Leeds 'very keen' on 25-year-old Liverpool target, player wants to leave – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Liverpool and Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Adama Traore this summer.
According to a new report from 90Min.com, Wolves are looking to offload Traore in the summer transfer window.
The report claims that Wolves are willing to sell both Traore and Ruben Neves in order to raise funds for new arrivals.
The 25-year-old hasn’t been at his best in the past 12 months, but several Premier League clubs are still interested in signing the Spaniard.
90 mins can exclusively reveal that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is particularly keen to land Traore. Liverpool are also interested in signing him and have tracked him for some time now.
The report adds that Chelsea and Manchester United are also in the mix, but both the clubs have other targets.
A couple of seasons ago, he was valued at around £70-80m. However, Wolves will be very lucky if they can get anything about £30-35m this time around.
Liverpool signed Diego Jota from Wolves last season, and it won’t be a big surprise if they make another attempt to raid their Premier League rivals once again.
Traore is a pacey winger who would be a very good addition for the Reds. Xherdan Shaqiri’s future at the Anfield club is uncertain, and the Spaniard would be a good replacement if he leaves the club.
Likewise, he would be a good addition for Leeds as well. Pablo Hernandez has left the club following the expiry of his contract, and Traore will be a fantastic replacement.
