Sunday Mirror reporting that we've enquired about Adama Traore. Wouldn't Wolves want £70m+ for him? How can we afford him when we can't afford the £53m for Werner?

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool are interested he would be a Salah replacement I would think.}

Nah can’t be any truth in this, just can’t be.

07 Jun 2020 11:19:47
5 goals and 10 assists in 94 games? That Traore? A replacement for Salah with 72 goals and 25 assists in 113 games?

I like Traore and I'd take him at the club to replace say Shaqiri or Origi. I trust Klopps judgement and ability to improve players. But if he replaces Salah, one of the top 5 forwards in the world, with a one trick Olympic sprinter then he's mental.

Traore isn't even in the top 50 forwards in the world. In fact he's only the 3rd best forward at Wolves.

{Ed002's Note - He is an outright RW so not a replacement for Shaqiri or Origi, and he would expect to be a starter.}

£70m transfers aren’t happening this window. End of story. If we’re not going to spend £45-50m on a 25 goal a season forward, then there’s absolutely no way we’re spending £70m on a forward who scores less and creates less.

07 Jun 2020 11:43:08
Something is afoot here. One of the front 3 is definitely leaving I think as any player we're linked with won't be happy to sit on the bench. Either that or Firmino will play as an attacking midfielder.

07 Jun 2020 11:55:21
Backwards stop if true 🤦🏻‍♂️.

It LFC rumours page, why question too much about Traore's rumour?
Me I enjoy the rumours.

07 Jun 2020 12:45:34
His stats aren't great, but neither were Salah's until he came to us.

07 Jun 2020 12:58:46
Let's face it, will only happen if Salah leaves, and no one is in the position to pay 100m+ at the moment for salah.

07 Jun 2020 13:30:23
Actually Mikey, you’d find that Salah was very very consistent with Roma’s in Serie A, regularly scoring double figures for goals and assists, so to say “neither were Salah’s” could not be wider of the mark.

It is absolutely clear to anyone that Salah’s goal and assists return was very impressive in the two years before he joined us. In fact it was more impressive than Paulo Dybala.

07 Jun 2020 15:27:36
Can't be that bad a player if Robertson came out recently and said he gave him the runaround. Not many players do that.

07 Jun 2020 16:11:51
No one said he was a bad player, however it’s fair to say that he lacks the end product to be a suitable replacement for either Salah or Mane. He can be unstoppable when he runs at someone but he doesn’t really have much in the way of finesse.

07 Jun 2020 16:28:37
Spot on 6 times. I think if Klopp switched to the 442 from 2017 where we won a couple of games 7-0 it would work with Traore on the right, Mane left, and Salah up front with Bobby.

But in the 433 we currently play Traore would be an atrocious direct replacement. Salah doesn't really play as a right winger. He drifts inside so Hendo and/ or Arnold can overlap and get balls into the box. Right wing is just a position you stand at kick off; positions are fallacies nowadays. Salah plays higher up than any other player in our team to the point he's basically a striker who just starts out from the right channel.

Traore will not match the goal return Salah gives us short or long term. He's a good player but people have Match of the Day fever because his blistering pace makes him look good against Liverpool and Man City's high defensive lines.

If Klopp wants him to change system or give us a better impact sub fair enough but he is not even remotely similar to Salah. Where he stands at kick off is irrelevant.

07 Jun 2020 16:32:59
Out of that Wolves team I’d rather we went for Jota, there is a player there who can step to the next level.

07 Jun 2020 19:00:58
Sunday Mirror. 🤷🏼‍♂️.

07 Jun 2020 21:14:09
PB, increasingly there isn’t ‘a system’, it’s a much more flexible approach now.
And this is where someone like Werner or Traore could fit in with differing formations.
Having said that, as much as I like him, I don’t see Liverpool paying £70m odd or whatever.

07 Jun 2020 21:22:18
I’d say it would be likely Dembele on loan with option to buy season after next.

There’s no big fees this window for me unless Carlos happens with Shaqiri going other way plus cash.

07 Jun 2020 21:52:01
I can’t see the Dembele happening as Barcelona want cash now, not in 12 months time notwithstanding the fact he’s almost permanently injured as he’d be a waste of a salary being In the physios more than on the pitch . I can however see us making a move for Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth on a free.

Bang on plain bread. I think traore is the most overrated misunderstood player around, people get so excited by his pace and ignore everything else. I wouldn't pay half the price talked about and definately wouldn't want him relied to be taking first 11 responsibility. It's always been the same with wingers like bolasie, Valencia, Jesus navas, Aaron Lennon, wilf zaha, Nathan Redmond that people see them as better footballers than they actually are just because they can run beyond a FB.
