Adama Traore has been backed to join Liverpool in January by two former Premier League stars. Traore has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent days. Liverpool are set to lose their two star forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for several games in the New Year due to their participation at the African Cup of Nations.

Traore has had a difficult season so far under new boss Bruno Lage.

He has failed to register a goal or assist in his 11 Premier League appearances.

The Spaniard netted just twice last season but it was the 2019/20 campaign where he really rose to prominence.

His four goals and nine assists that year saw him linked with mega-money moves across Europe.

However, Traore’s contract at Molineux expires in the summer of 2023 and Wolves could look to cash in.

Italian outlet CalcioMercato claims Liverpool are looking to exploit Wolves’ willingness to sell the 25-year-old.

The report says Liverpool were interested in Traore last summer but the £42.2million asking price put them off.

Now Wolves would not be able to ask for as high a price for the former Barcelona ace.

Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent reckons Traore would be a top signing for Liverpool.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Bent said: “How much could they get him for, Adama?

“In that team he could be unstoppable as well by the way.

“His problem is consistency but I think in that Liverpool team, where they play the high press and high energy, he might be good for them.”

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was working alongside Bent on the radio station.

And he reckons a deal for Traore could be thrashed out at around £30m.

Wilshere said: “They could get him for £30m. I think he’d be unreal.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has publicly spoken of his admiration of Traore in the past.

In 2019, the German claimed Traore had found the right manager in Nuno Espirito Santo to get the best from his talents.

“He is a big, big talent,” Klopp said.

“You would never have thought he is that young, but he is still very young, and now he has found it (the right manager).

“It was always clear it would happen one day, and now it has. Good for Wolves!”
