Wolverhampton’s ownership group Fosun International has told manager Nuno Espirito Santo to raise funds.

This has put both Liverpool and Manchester City on red alert over a potential transfer for winger Adama Traore.

While Nuno is hopeful of keeping Mexican striker Raul Jimenez, he is prepared to let Traore leave if a suitable offer is submitted.

Throughout recent months, Liverpool and Manchester City have both registered their interest in the speedy winger and could both make bids this window.

Liverpool sees Adama Traore as an impact player that would come off the bench.

Wolves bought Traore for £18 million two years ago and are said to value him at more than double that fee.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Liverpool’s current backup winger, has been linked with a move away from the club.

Liverpool have said that if a suitable offer comes in for Shaqiri, they will not turn it down.

Traore would be an amazing option off the bench and would be a nightmare for the opposition.

Adama Traore made 37 Premier League appearances, contributing four goals and nine assists.

Liverpool have long since needed more winger depth behind Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

Liverpool are said to be in the chase for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr and now Traore.

If that is anything to go by, we can expect to see a winger brought in this summer.

Will we see Adama Traore in a Liverpool top?
