Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backed to beat Man Utd to signing of his very own super sub

Liverpool have been tipped to beat Manchester United to the signing of Adama Traore and Jurgen Klopp could be about to unearth his very own super sub. The Reds are keen on bolstering their attacking options when the season is concluded and Adama is one of the names in the frame.

Wolves are under no pressure to sell but the Molineux hierarchy would surely find it hard to turn down a mega-money offer, with the Spaniard valued at around £80million.

Traore has really taken off this season, after working on his end product on the training field.

His pace and power has always been a valuable asset to Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Wolves and now Traore has found a way to utilise his speed in devastating fashion.

He has six goals and ten assists to his name in all competitions but has helped Wolves win several games on his own.

French outlet Le10 Sport claim that Liverpool and Manchester United are ready to battle it out for his signature, with Manchester City also keen.

Pundit Alex Bruce believes the Reds could go for the 24-year-old, who would bring something different to the table in attack.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if someone like him is bought by Liverpool because he’s got such good assets,” Bruce told Football Insider.

“He’d be a handful for anybody to play against and useful for any club to have in their squad.

“The pace and power that he has, I believe it’s the biggest asset you can have in football.

“To have someone with that blistering pace, who can unravel defences like he can and when he takes it on the outside, he’s lethal.

“I think he could add something to all those teams, including Liverpool.

“We know that they don’t need players to come into the first-team, they just need players who are going to boost the squad and if someone’s going to come in and give them something, obviously not as a regular player but to come off the bench and play when needed, you need a healthy squad at every club.”

Klopp and his Liverpool players all share a mutual respect for Traore.

He gave the Reds a rough time in their 2-1 win in the Black Country in January.

Andy Robertson recently admitted he struggled to cope with the former Barcelona man.

When asked on That Peter Crouch Podcast who is the most difficult opponent he has faced, Robertson said: “Traore this season ripped me apart, to be fair.

“I think he could give most Premier League defenders a 15-yard start and he would win the race.”

After that match, Klopp also praised Adama’s quality and noted that his defence needed to be at the top of their game to keep him at bay.

“He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable,” he said.

“What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
