Liverpool and Manchester City ‘compete for Adama Traore signing’ while Nuno Espirito Santo is told Wolves may need to ‘sell the fast winger’ to raise money over covid-19
- Wolves are reportedly considering selling Adama Traore to raise funds
- The owners of the Fosun International club have been affected by the impact of Covid-19
- Liverpool and Manchester City would be interested in the fast winger
Wolves are reportedly considering whether to cash in on star player Adama Traore, with both Liverpool and Manchester City reportedly interested.
The club’s owners, Fosun International, are believed to have been badly affected by Covid-19 and are looking for funds.
Now the Daily mirror have reported that boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been told to raise transfer funds and that the club may need to be forced to sell the player.
Liverpool and Manchester City would both like to attract winger Adama Traore
Nuno Espirito Santo has reportedly been told that wolves should raise money this summer
The report states that the Portuguese manager is ‘desperate’ to hold on to top scorer Raul Jimenez but is willing to listen to offers for Traore.
Both Liverpool and Manchester City have both expressed interest in the fast winger, and Wolves are reportedly hoping that one of the two giants will make a substantial bid for the 24-year-old.
Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool and runner-up Manchester City consider Traore, who is rated the fastest in the top flight, as an impact player who could improve their squads and challenge them for a starting place.
Traore has been terrorizing defenses across the country since joining Wolves in 2018
The Spaniard destroyed Manchester City in both Wolves’ League victories against Pep Guardiola last season, scoring three goals in the two games.
Wolves may have been unlucky for not getting a result against Liverpool, but Traore once again played against Jurgen Klopp, giving Andy Robertson one of his most difficult games in a red shirt.
Traore joined Wolves in 2018 for £ 18m from Middlesbrough having previously played for Aston Villa and Barcelona.
If Wolves sold him, it would cost significantly more to entice the West Midlands club to sell one of their star assets.
