Liverpool Preparing £30M Bid For Wolves Winger

Jurgen Klopp has identified Adama Traore as the winger he wants to sign and the club is readying a cut-price offer.

Liverpool have been very active in the transfer window thus far. 

The Reds have been linked with plenty of players, but most of the club's movement has been with outgoings.

Michael Edwards has managed to accumulate nearly £30 million after selling a trio of loan players.

Harry Wilson, Marko Grujic and Taiwo Awoniyi have officially left the Anfield side on permanent transfers after the club failed to move them on last season. 

With this, it has set up the Reds nicely to make further moves after bringing in Ibrahima Konate.

Although there were reports that there would be no further signings but reputable journalist Melissa Reddy has said otherwise.

When writing for The Independent, Reddy said that Liverpool are 'actively' looking to recruit a new midfielder and a new attacker this summer.

It appears that Liverpool's main midfield target is Atletico Madrid's Spanish maestro Saul Niguez. 

Rumours are flying about that Liverpool have completed the deal but nothing is confirmed at the moment.

As far as attackers, Liverpool have been linked with a host of talented players but are apparently readying a bid for a Premier League forward.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool are preparing a £30m bid for Wolverhampton winger Adama Traore.

The report claims that Traore has been on Jurgen Klopp's wishlist for some time now but he has always been deemed 'too expensive'.

Although he is said to be available for a cut price, Liverpool face competition from Serie A giants Roma and fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are believed to have a leg up in the race for the Spaniard's signature due to their recent hire of Nuno Espirito Santo as manager.

Adama Traore and the now Spurs manager had a good relationship during their time together at Wolves.

On top of this, it is unsure if the speedster would accept the role of super sub in Klopp's team.

The odds are stacked against a potential Liverpool move, but don't rule it out just yet.
