Wolverhampton Wanderers may have received a boost to their hopes of keeping Adama Traore beyond the summer.

It was reported earlier this year that Leeds United were keen to sign the Spain international.

Eurosport stated that the Whites would be likely to make an offer for the 25-year-old this summer.

Given Leeds’ high octane and swashbuckling style, Traore would arguably be a good fit for them.

But Wolves cannot lose him, as it’s clear how much of a threat he still is despite an inconsistent season this time around.

Thankfully, a new report has emerged and it seems Leeds have their eye on another winger.

 

According to Sky Germany, they’re keen on Hertha Berlin star Matheus Cunha.

The Brazilian, who ironically was linked with Wolves back in January 2020 (Sky Sports), has enjoyed a good 2020/21, and Leeds are weighing up a move for the £26 million-rated attacker.

Traore looking more likely for Wolves stay?

Leeds apparently wanting Cunha could well mean they don’t fancy their chances of signing Traore, which is great for Wolves.

This news, following the reports of Traore and the club being back in contract negotiations, makes it feel more likely that he will stay at Molineux beyond the summer at least.

It’s been a very mixed bag this season for Traore, but we’ve all seen the kind of mayhem he can cause and it would potentially be fairly damaging if he departed.
