Tottenham and Liverpool are both eyeing a move for Wolves wideman Adama Traore.
According to the Star, Roma – now managed by Jose Mourinho – are also interested in the winger.
The report claims that Liverpool’s interested is more advanced. There were links in January too.
They say that the Reds believe Wolves’ asking price for Traore has dropped from £60 million to £30 million.
There’s no reason given for why they think that.
Perhaps it’s the general impact of the pandemic on finances in the world of football. There were reports yesterday that Wolves will listen to offers for Traore this summer.
But they have to be suitable. The report claims Tottenham are interested if the price is right.
Of course former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is trying to reshape the squad he’s inherited.
He brought Traore to Wolves and showed an immense amount of faith in him to develop.
But Daniel Levy would have to pay up if he wants to get Traore and that’s not something he’s in the habit of doing.
Will Traore go?
Neither Spurs or Liverpool are likely to come in big and early with a lucrative offer.
And the only reason Wolves would sell Traore is to raise serious funds to give Bruno Lage to improve his squad.
Traore’s lingering contract situation complicates matters slightly. He has two years left on his deal and there’s a standoff over an extension.
But that’s no reason for Wolves to be pushed into a sale and there doesn’t even seem to be an offer on the table yet.
Nuno has already been knocked back in his pursuit of Conor Coady and it would be a boost if the same thing happened with Traore.
