Adama Traore latest

Wolves have named their price for winger Adama Traore.

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim the Premier League club will NOT sanction his departure for less than £70million.

The rapid attacker has scored six goals and provided 10 assists in 43 appearances this campaign – leading to interest from Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

“He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a player, it’s not only him but he’s so good,” Jurgen Klopp said of Traore in January.

Wanted: Xherdan Shaqiri

Sevilla are planning to sign Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri.

That’s according to Swiss publication Blick, who claim Sevilla are putting together a ‘mega offer’ behind the scenes.

Roma and CSKA Moscow are also interested in the 28-year-old attacker, who has played just 174 minutes of Premier League action under Jurgen Klopp this season.

With the winger seemingly surplus to requirements, Sevilla are looking to pounce and will supposedly offer Shaqiri a ‘lucrative’ contract proposal.

The Reds bought Shaqiri from Stoke for £13.5million in July 2018 and have slapped a £26.5m valuation on him.

Timo Werner to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are a better fit than Liverpool for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, according to Dimitar Berbatov.

The sought-after Germany international is on the radar of several European sides, all looking to trigger his relatively low £51million release clause.

But Berbatov thinks he should continue in the Bundesliga rather than trying to adjust to Premier League football.

“To be honest, it [Bayern Munich] looks like a sensible move for Timo Werner, he knows the league, they know him there, he can get used to his surroundings a lot easier,” Berbatov told Betfair. “It makes more sense for him to go there than move to England where it will probably take him a bit more time to adjust to things.

“I don’t think Liverpool will miss out if he doesn’t move to Merseyside, their front three are so good. I don’t see many players coming close to them at the moment, the way they link up, the way they switch positions is so phenomenal. It’s hard to see someone else fitting in the way they do.”

Houssem Aouar interest

Three Premier League clubs are looking to snatch the services of Lyon star Houssem Aouar.

Aouar, 21, is considered one of the most exciting talents in European football having already amassed 97 Ligue 1 appearances – scoring 16 goals and providing the same number of assists.

His displays have caught the attention of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, who are all reportedly ‘stepping up’ their efforts to sign him.

The Sun say Jurgen Klopp’s side have already held talks to discuss a £65million transfer and claim Mikel Arteta’s side will find it difficult with their lower budget.
