Adama Traore 'becomes Jurgen Klopp's top Liverpool target'

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen his attacking options by securing the signature of Adama Traore, according to a report.

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has reportedly emerged as a priority transfer target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Traore enjoyed a stellar campaign with Nuno Espirito Santo's side before the coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to the season, with the Spaniard registering six goals and 10 assists across all competitions.

The likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been linked with Traore recently, but Klopp is supposedly determined to bring the former Middlesbrough man to Anfield in time for next season.

According to The Sun, Klopp is on the lookout for players to bolster his attacking options amid speculation regarding the futures of Liverpool's current front three.

Sadio Mane is reportedly a target for Real Madrid ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and Liverpool would supposedly have to sell in order to raise the required funds for Traore.

The report claims that Wolves have set a £60m price tag on the 24-year-old - a fee which Klopp's side could struggle to fork out given the financial implications of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Traore is under contract at Molineux until the summer of 2023.
