Jorge Mendes working on Liverpool and Manchester City transfer which has ‘scary’ price tag

Liverpool and Manchester City are still considering a swoop for Adama Traore with super-agent Jorge Mendes working on trying to reduce Wolves’ ‘scary’ £63million asking price, according to reports in Italy.

Wolves have apparently decided to listen to offers for the powerful winger, who has attracted interest from Juventus.

The Serie A side are interested as they look to add some serious firepower this summer following their failure to win the Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to soon be joined by Barcelona forward Luis Suarez at the Allianz Stadium.

Traore would be an exceptional addition to supplement an already lethal strike force.

However, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claims Liverpool and City are also closely monitoring Traore’s situation.

The two Premier League clubs are said to be ‘scared’ of the fee Wolves are demanding.

Traore’s agent Mendes is hoping to find a solution and is speaking to all three clubs to find a solution.

Liverpool’s starting XI is extremely strong but they still lack some strength in depth.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are guaranteed their wide berths but there is little competition to push them on.

Signing Traore would keep the duo on their toes and ensure no complacency creeps in as they begin their Premier League title defence.

Meanwhile, City sold winger Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich and are still on the lookout for a replacement.

Speaking in June, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo was unsure if Traore would still be his player for the 2020/21 campaign.

“I don’t know,” he said. “He is here now and he has trained well today.

“It is day by day, no speculation, and [we] just focus on what we have to do.

He added: “Adama is a special player, he is unique, and I think when he is on the pitch he already has an impact on the game.

“Of course, he has things to improve and then after that it is our decision how we use players and manage the team in the game plan and the moment.

“The momentum and the moment we are in after three months of activity, we have a lot of things to judge on and try to make the right decisions.”
