Liverpool have reignited their interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore as it is believed that Wolves’ previous asking price has now been halved.

The West Midlands club paid a little less than £20million for Traore in 2018 and will be looking to make a profit if he leaves permanently this summer.

He has only scored ten goals and assisted 18 in 131 appearances for the Molineux side.

It was rumoured that Wolves were looking for £50-60m for the Spaniard; a fee that Liverpool refused to pay.

The Reds are prepared to pay no more than £25m for Traore, and according to the Daily Star, the 25-year-old is now available for around that price.

Jurgen Klopp will likely be eyeing up a move for a new right-winger after the departure of Harry Wilson to Fulham and the inevitable departure of Xherdan Shaqiri.

Juventus and Italy star Federico Chiesa has been linked with a move to Anfield, being described as Klopp’s ‘perfect forward’.

If the Traore rumours are true, Liverpool could face competition from Leeds United for his signature.

The Whites have also reignited their interest in the winger, with Marcelo Bielsa apparently being a big fan of the Spaniard.

Leeds director of football Victor Orta signed Traore for Middlesbrough during his time at the club and reportedly spoke to Wolves in January about a potential transfer.

However, former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson reckons Traore would be “an incredible impact player for Liverpool next season if he joins”.

Robinson told Football Insider: “I think he will be an incredible impact player for Liverpool next season if he joins. He is someone who I would love to see him at Tottenham.

“I was very surprised Enrique didn’t use him more at the Euros. I really rate him. He brings such an impetus going forward.

“He has come on leaps and bounds in the last 12 to 18 months and I think wherever he goes he will do well.

“Jota has managed to infiltrate that Liverpool front three and I don’t think it’s set in stone anymore who will play. He wouldn’t start every game but his pace and directness would be a huge asset to them.

“Traore would have an impact wherever he goes. He is a top player. I’m sure many clubs in the Premier League are looking at him.”
