Wolves have reportedly put a contract offer to Adama Traore which is far less than the one they presented him with a couple of years ago.
According to the Daily Mail, the proposal that is on the table right now doesn’t come anywhere near the one that was offered when he was being heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur two years ago.
Supposedly, that one was worth around £100,000-a-week.
Traore rejected that deal and is still on the same contract as when he first signed for the club.
Traore joined Wolves in 2018, and since his arrival, many players have come in on higher wages than him.
It is not currently clear exactly how much Wolves have offered Traore to extend his contact.
But at the moment, he stands to leave the club for free. Napoli have been strongly linked with him over the past few months.
Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui is still keen to keep a hold of Traore, and said that the club is working on trying to get him to extend.
He said: “The club is working (on it) of course and we are happy with him. He’s working in a very good way.
“I hope that he continues with us, of course. I don’t know what is going to happen, because it’s about two parties, but I am happy with him and he knows that.”
Wolves might be banking on Julen Lopetegui factor to tie Adama Traore down
It could be that Wolves are hoping the presence of Lopetegui will mean Adama Traore will accept a lower salary than the one that was offer two years ago.
Traore is certainly a big fan of the new manager.
And he has seemed to have a new lease of life about him in recent weeks.
It remains to be seen though if he will extend. He’s been at the club since 2018 on the same contract.
He might just feel as though it’s time for a new chapter, as much as he likes Lopetegui.
