Liverpool and Man City in transfer battle to sign Wolves powerhouse Adama Traore

LIVERPOOL and Manchester City could duel for Wolves’ explosive winger Adama Traore.

The Mirror claim Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been told to sell players to fund a squad revamp – and his priority is keeping possible Manchester United target Raul Jimenez.

Wolves are reportedly more willing to sell Adama Traore than Raul Jimenez, hoping Liverpool and Man City will get into a bidding war

Striker Raul Jimenez is the fans’ favourite and Wolves chief Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to fend off rumoured suitors like Man Utd

That leaves Wolves hoping Premier League champions Liverpool and dethroned kings City will launch a bidding war for pacy, powerful Traore.

The ex-Barcelona, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough ace, 24, has just won his first Spain call-up.

And Wolves are said to rate him at twice the £18million they paid Middlesbrough for him two years ago.

Club owners Fosun International are cutting back due to a financial hit from the coronavirus pandemic after Wolves finished seventh, three points above FA Cup winners Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Mexico striker Jimenez has reportedly attracted attention from Spain, as well as United.

The 82-cap former Atletico Madrid star, 29, is the fans’ favourite at Molineux.

But back in March he told ESPN Mexico: ”One is always open to everything, but I have a contract until 2023.”
