Adama Traore has been argued to be a success at Liverpool as speculation ties the Wolves wide man to a move to Anfield.
The Reds were said to have taken an interest in the Spaniard last summer but were said to have been put off by the £ 50million price tag put on his head.
However, reports suggest Wolves are now set to part ways with the 25-year-old as they look to raise funds to sign RB Leipzig lender He-Chan Hwang for good.
According to CalcioMercato, Leipzig are asking for £ 42million for Hwang and Wolves want to close the deal in January.
South Korea international Hwang was an instant success at Molineux with four goals in nine Premier League appearances, and a possible permanent transfer could pave the way for Traore to join the Anfield club.
Former Premier League stars Darren Bent and Jack Wilshere believe Jurgen Klopp could do wonders with the Spaniard, who has excellent all-round attributes in his game except for a deadly finish in his record .
Traore has yet to contribute Wolves’ goals this season, scoreless and assists in 23 appearances across all competitions, but there is no doubt his talent and talkSPORT pundits believe he would be “unreal” under the direction of Klopp.
“In this team he could be unstoppable,” said Bent, who has played for Tottenham, Aston Villa and Sunderland.
“His problem is consistency, but in this Liverpool side, where they play with high press and high energy, it could be different.”
Former Arsenal man Wilshere added: “It would be unreal.”
Traore has had a mixed time since arriving at Molineux, failing to consistently reach his undoubted potential.
Barcelona are also believed to be interested in a decision to bring back the 25-year-old, who went through his famous La Masia academy, and could take a chance as his future is still unresolved.
Liverpool, however, need the flying winger more.
The Reds are set to lose Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in January due to the Africa Cup of Nations, which means the Spaniard’s arrival in the new year could give Anfield a welcome boost.
