Liverpool have reportedly made a move for Wolves ace Adams Traore. The Wolves winger has impressed this season with his speed and crossing and is said to be of interest to Jurgen Klopp.
Traore, 24, is finally making his mark on the Premier League after joining Aston Villa from Barcelona in 2015.
And five years on he is now of interest to Liverpool.
His direct style has helped Wolves secure back-to-back wins over West Ham and Bournemouth.

He supplied assists for Raul Jimenez in both after coming off the bench in London before starting the second match.
He now has nine assists in the Premier League this season and has scored four times himself in 23 starts and seven sub appearances.
His assist figures are only bettered by Kevin de Bruyne and Trent Alexander-Arnold domestically this season.

And Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo report that Liverpool have made a move for him.
It claims the Reds have made one of ‘several’ offers on the table for Spain youth international.
Earlier this week Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admitted he was unsure of Traore would remain at the club beyond the summer.
When asked about a potential move, Nuno said: “I don’t know. He is here now and he has trained well today and he is ready to go [play] tomorrow.
“It is day by day, no speculation, and [we] just focus on what we have to do and prepare for Bournemouth.”
Traore joined Wolves in 2018 from Middlesbrough where he spent two seasons after one year at Villa.
And while he has represented Spain at under-21 level he could still play for Mali.
A move to Liverpool would put him in competition with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and co.
With the Reds set to wrap up the Premier League title more of their fringe players including Takumi Minamino should get more game time in the coming weeks.
And Liverpool have been urged to bring more players of quality in the summer.
“The celebrations for Liverpool’s first title since 1990 are about to begin and it’s a great time to be a Red,” Jason McAteer told the Racing Post.
“But, what now? They can’t stand still and they should be looking to dominate the English game in the same manner as Manchester United did in the 1990s.
“That’s not going to be easy with some clubs potentially able to fork out big transfer fees, although of course we don’t know what sort of world we are going to be living in when the window opens.
“But while Liverpool need to keep evolving and the players who have served Jurgen Klopp so well will be a year older, they are going to lose personnel who need to be replaced.”
