Liverpool sent Adama Traore transfer message by former Man City star

Adama Traore has what it takes to play for Liverpool believes former Everton and Man City star Joleon Lescott.

The winger has enjoyed an outstanding campaign for Wolves, scoring six goals and providing 14 assists in 52 appearances.

His impressive campaign has led to reported interest from a host of clubs across Europe over the past few months.

One of those sides is Liverpool, who until recently were favourites to secure Traore‘s signature this summer.

But while the ECHO understands that Liverpool are unlikely to be spending big this summer, having already decided against a move for Timo Werner, Lescott believes the former Barcelona man could easily play for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He told Football Index : "Adama Traore has the ability to play for any side in club football.

"Traore could easily play for a Manchester City or Liverpool. I have never seen such speed and strength on a football pitch before.

"Before this season, there were question marks over his game management and his final product, but he has really improved over the last 12 months. Traore has simplified his game and has taken his foot off the pedal.

"He used to sprint at his absolute fastest to beat defenders which meant he had no time to deliver a telling cross or shot.

"He now beats defenders only running at 80% which has given him that extra bit of time he needs to make the position count with a goal or assist. He was a star in the Premier League this season."
