Liverpool and Tottenham Alerted To Premier League Star With £32Million Slashed Off His Price Tag
Football Insider reports that Jurgen Klopp is big admirer of Traore, and the winger could make the switch to Anfield for as little as £18million, after Wolves initially wanted an eye-watering £50million to acquire his services.
Wolves need to sell players before they can bring any new ones to Molineux, and Traore could be heading for the exit door after an underwhelming season to date.
He is yet to score or register an assist in 15 appearances across all competitions, and his three-year stay with the West Midlands side could soon be coming to an end.
Klopp reportedly wants a player who is quick on the counter-attack to bolster his squad, and is eager for reinforcements in January when Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane head for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Although, Liverpool are not the only club who have been linked with Traore, as Tottenham Hotspur were among the frontrunners for his signature last summer.
A move to north London would have seen Traore link up with former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, before the Portuguese was sacked.
But for now, the focus for Traore will be on Wolves' upcoming Premier League match, which, ironically, is against Liverpool on Saturday.
An impressive display will undoubtedly bring him to Klopp's attention once again, and may seal a deal on a move to the north west.
It is going to be interesting to see what happens in January.
