Lets start off on the SSD’s connector, The Samsung 960 EVO is a NVMe M.2 drive. Your Mac uses a custom physical SSD interface so these will not mate directly!
The drive dialog of your Samsung SSD is PCIe/NVMe but your MacBook Pro is expecting mSATA III (6.0 Gb/s) interface drive. So this drive will not work in your system even with the adapter you’ve linked to.
To help clarify things, review this diagram:
Your system uses the Purple path on the left. Here is a great reference on what Apple used for SSD’s The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs And your system uses the second generation of SSD’s (GEN2) within this guide.
If you can, I would cancel the order and look at just getting the correct SSD to start with from BeetsTech (or any other good source like OWC or Transcend) in the long haul its just gets you a better outcome.
