Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Adama Traore reportedly remains on the radar of Liverpool, who are reluctant to cough up the Molineux side's £40m valuation.
The 25-year-old has entered the final two years of his deal with Bruno Lage's side, with talks over a new contract so far failing to lead to a positive solution.
Traore continues to be linked with a move to a European-competing club as the clock ticks on his time with Wolves, but Chelsea are not thought to be in the running to sign the Spain international.
According to 90Min, Traore is pushing for a move away from Molineux this summer, and Liverpool are hoping to strike a deal as Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi prepare to depart.
The report adds that Wolves will allow Traore to leave for the right price, but Liverpool are hoping to negotiate a lower fee than the £40m that the Molineux outfit are holding out for.
Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United have also been credited with an interest in Traore, who only managed two goals and three assists from 37 Premier League games last term.
