This is not the primary time that we’ve been linked with the Spaniard, who has performed quite well for Wolves within the current campaign.
In January, we covered a story (via 90min.com) claiming that the Reds are looking to sign the attacker, who is very rated by Jurgen Klopp, within the summer transfer window.
On the opposite hand, last month, Football Insider reported that the ecu Champions have set sights on luring the previous Middlesbrough winger. The source also revealed that the Molineux outfit would only sell their prized if their mammoth selling price of £70million is met.
Traore never got sporting chance at the Nou Camp and made just four senior appearances for Barca before moving to England. He did not shine with Boro and also struggled during a few games with Villa.
However, with Wolves and particularly this season under Portuguese boss Espiritio Santo, he has excelled. So far, in 22 league starts (this term), he has directly contributed (Transfermarkt) in 11 goals (4 goals and seven assists).
Wolves has already done the league double Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side this season and Traore was mainly liable for the destruction.
He scored two goals at the Etihad and directly contributed in two more reception to earn six points against the Champions.
