Wolverhampton Wanderers right-back Nelson Semedo has raved about reported Liverpool target Adama Traore on the club’s official website.
Semedo, a former Barcelona player, has said that Traore is very strong, and has admitted that he would love to have his characteristic.
The Daily Star reported on July 27 that that Liverpool are planning to make a bid of £30 million for the former Aston Villa winger.
Semedo told Wolves’ official website when asked if he could have one characteristic of a teammate, what would it be: “Adama’s strength. It would be nice to be that strong – he’s so strong.”
Traore does not tend to score too many goals, and some will suggest that he also needs to do better with his assists.
After all, the Spain international winger scored two goals and gave two assists in 28 Premier League starts last season.
However, in 2019-20, the 25-year-old scored four goals and gave nine assists in 27 league starts.
Raul Jimenez was fit that campaign.
When a teammate singles you out in public, you know that you must be doing something right.
Semedo praising Traore shows the former Barcelona prospect’s quality.
The Premier League is a physical league, and a player of Traore’s strength in attack would make Liverpool better.
Now, of course, Traore has other attributes as well.
The 25-year-old can dribble, whip in excellent crosses, is brilliant in one-v-ones, and is very quick.
For £30 million, Traore would be a very good signing for Liverpool.
However, it remains to be seen if Wolves will actually sell the winger for £30 million.
