Liverpool club legend Steve Nicol feels that Wolves superstar Adama Traore is not yet ready to move to Merseyside and claims that even though Traore is a great player in his own right, he would be no more than a squad player at Liverpool. Nicol feels Liverpool’s front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are all still in their prime, which is why Nicol believes Traore, 24, should stay at Molineux for now.
Steve Nicol said “I could see him going [to Liverpool], not as a starter though, I don’t think he’s quite ready to start for one of the, if not the, top team in the world. But there’s no question when he gets the ball, you sit on the edge of your seat, you wonder what’s going to happen and if you’re playing against him, disaster. Do you close him? Do you stand off him? He’s certainly a talent. I don’t think he’s the finished article yet. He’s come a long way in the last couple of seasons. I think a little more time with Wolves would do him the world of good.”
