Wolves star Adama Traore has been warned off the idea of completing a summer move to Liverpool by his former boss Tony Pulis.

Traore is reportedly one of the top targets for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season.

The winger has made quite an impression since moving to Molineux from Middlesbrough in the summer of 2018.

Over the course of this season, Traore has scored four goals and created seven for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

It’s the Spaniard’s unstoppable pace and power that makes him a unique prospect that is attracting the attention of clubs such as Liverpool and Barcelona.

Tony Pulis, who managed Traore during his time at Middlesborough believes he’ll be better off staying at Wolves and improving under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Asides that, his next line of thought should also be breaking into the Spain first eleven.

Speaking to Stats Perform News, Pulis said: “He’s gone to Wolves – we didn’t want to get rid of him at Middlesbrough, but the only problem was the finance. He went to the right club, stepped up and has murdered it

“I think he can only get better. His temperament and personality is first class.

“His next step, I speak to him now and then, his next step is to get a place in the Spanish side.

“I’ll be quite content for him, and I said this to him, to settle down. Traore seems happy at Wolves. He’s playing under a manager that’s confident with him and gives the respect he needs.

“But his big challenge is seeing if he can get a place in the Spanish team and keep it.”
