Wolves winger Adama Traore wants to leave Molineux in the transfer window and could be available for £10m, according to the reporter Josh Holland.
Barcelona turned down the chance to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal this summer, but a move away from Bruno Lage’s side still looks likely with Newcastle United among the interested parties.
What’s new on Adama Traoré?
His explosive pace has made Traore a target for many clubs since his breakthrough with Wolves, but this summer it looks likely he will finally get his shot.
January saw the Spain international signed by Barcelona on a temporary deal until the end of the 2021-22 campaign and although the Catalan giants won’t go ahead with a permanent deal, other parties remain interested. .
Newly wealthy Newcastle appear to be in the running for Traore at the time of writing. The Saudi Public Investment Fund which bought the club from Mike Ashley in October has moved its venues higher up the Premier Leaue table and an explosive talent like Traore could be an attractive option.
They are not alone in the pursuit, however, as Everton, Leeds United and West Ham are said to have their own ambitions for the 26-year-old.
It’s no surprise either, with a report from The Athletic revealing that Wolves value the winger at just £10million.
What did Holland say about Traore?
Holland told GIVEMESPORT when asked if this information could be true. “I don’t think he really wants to stay at Wolves. I think his comments and actions last season before he went to Barcelona kind of said that, obviously refusing to sign a new contract. He’s linked for a few years now.“
Will Traore leave Wolves this summer?
As things stand, it seems far more likely than not that Traore will ply his trade away from Molineux at the start of next season.
The £10m speaks volumes about both parties’ interest in keeping the current deal with Bruno Lage, perhaps feeling he already has better options available to him.
Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence, Hee-Chan Hwang and Chiquinho all impressed in a flash last season, so it makes sense to make room on the wage bill by moving Traore.
While Traore has often dazzled on the pitch, his production remains unspectacular, scoring just 11 goals and providing 18 assists in 154 appearances. Even 20 appearances for Barcelona couldn’t bring the winger more than one goal.
But while Wolves may be willing to accept £10million, with West Ham, Newcastle and Leeds all chasing them, the price could soon rise. Either way, he seems destined to leave.
