Report: Adama Traore to sign new Wolves contract

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore is set to sign a new contract with the West Midlands club this summer, according to Goal.

Goal have suggested that the Wolves winger is ready to reopen talks after they had collapsed earlier in the season.

This had been partly both due to his wage demands. The Spain international winger had been looking for £100, 000 per week, which would make him one of the club’s top earners.

The other issue was his role in the team. At the time of the collapse of talks, the former Barcelona winger had found himself on the substitutes’ bench and was behind Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto in the pecking order.

It led to transfer reports linking him with a return to Barcelona or a move to domestic rivals Liverpool.

Thankfully for the club’s owner Jeff Shi and Wolves, it appears that the dynamic player has had a change of heart after starting 14 out the club’s previous 15 games.

His form has also significantly upturned during this run of starts, with Traore managing two goals and two assists in his past eight games.

The report will delight many of the club’s supporters who have credited him with being the key to Wolves’ attack in recent weeks.

He inspired them to their last win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, scoring the equaliser in their comeback victory.

Goal also reported that there will be a ‘gentleman’s agreement’. If a significant offer comes in from a bigger club, then Wolves will allow him to leave.

It is clear Traore is fondly thought of by his manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, who spoke of the ‘big step‘ the wide-man has made at the club.

It would cap off a great couple of months for Traore if he receives a call-up to the Spain national team for the European Championships, with coach, Luis Enrique, expected to announce his squad on Monday.
