Liverpool and Bayern Munich to battle for Adama Traore
Liverpool are set to face competition from Bayern Munich in the pursuit of Wolves winger Adama Traore. This is according to reputed journalist Duncan Castles, who has claimed that the German giants have rekindled their interest in Traore on his Transfer Window Podcast (h/t Birmingham Mail).
Traore, a product of Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy, has been one of Wolves’ most dangerous players this season. After years of showing promise and potential, the winger has stepped it up a notch this season, producing a return of 6 goals and 1o assists in 43 matches in all competitions.
The 24-year-old has completed the most number of take-ons in the Premier League this season (144). This kind of form has led to Traore attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Liverpool. And now, Bayern Munich have also joined the hunt for the Wolves star (h/t Birmingham Mail).
The report states that the Bundesliga champions had made an attempt to sign Traore when he was still a teenager in 2015, but were rejected by the winger, who opted to join Aston Villa at that time. Having failed to land him back then, Die Roten are hoping to tempt him to join their project in Germany next season (h/t Birmingham Mail).
In Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, we have one of the most feared attacking trios in the game currently. However, Jurgen Klopp has little in terms of quality backup for our first-choice attacking trident.

Signing someone like Traore would address that problem for Liverpool. However, there will be questions over his suitability to Klopp’s style of play, given that he plays in a predominantly counter-attacking system at Wolves.
With Bayern also entering the race (h/t Birmingham Mail), it will be interesting to see if our club does make a move to sign the 24-year-old in the summer.
