Liverpool consider £110m RAID on Wolves for Ruben Neves and Adama Traore.
Jurgen Klopp is determined to keep improving on his world champion squad, eyeing up a huge swoop for Wolves’ Ruben Neves and Adama Traore.
With Liverpool inches from the title and Jordan Henderson’s fingers hovering above the Premier League trophy, the Reds are already looking ahead to a title defence.
A number of departures are likely in the summer with Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana almost certain to leave, while Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita and Divock Origi’s Anfield futures remain in doubt.
Klopp is a known admirer of Nuno Espirito Santo’s work at Wolves and in particular his star players Neves and Traore, who Liverpool are considering a £110m move for, according to the Sun.
Traore was described as ‘unplayable at times’ and ‘unbelievable’ earlier this season, and has been one of the standout performers of 2019-20.
The Spaniard has finally turned the raw pace and power he’s shown since his Barcelona academy days into a terrorising threat for top-flight defenders, bagging four goals and seven assists.
Midfielder Neves joined from Porto in 2017, helping Wolves climb out of the Championship before proving his £16m fee was a bargain in the Premier League.
The 23-year-old could refresh the Liverpool midfield and challenge for a place in the Champions League winners’ first XI.
Liverpool restart their march to the title with Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, hoping to secure the title the day after Wolves take on struggling West Ham behind-closed-doors.
