Adama Traore is into the final couple of years of his contract at Wolves.
The Spaniard can leave Molineux as a free agent in the summer of 2023.
After retaining him beyond the last transfer window, amid some interest from Tottenham Hotspur, it was reported that Wolves felt confident of sorting out a new deal.
After all, the club had been able to tie down the likes of Raul Jimenez, Conor Coady and Pedro Neto in 2020.
But there has been no movement on the situation for a number of weeks now.
And interestingly, Traore has started to become a little more dispensible to Bruno Lage.
He was benched against Southampton and Newcastle a few weeks back, and then once more against Everton on Monday.
Traore has not had that many minutes since the end of September, but Wolves have managed quite well in spite of that.
Hwang Hee-chan has really risen to the challenge and seems very well-liked by Lage.
Daniel Podence and Francisco Trincao have also had chances and done ell in parts.
In an ideal world, Traore would have more of a consistent end product and he’d be playing every single game.
But that is not the case right now, and it seems Lage’s patience could be wearing thin.
Wolves fans discuss Traore
On social media, fans have been talking about what should happen with the 25-year-old in January given how things are looking with him at the moment.
It seems that more people are now open to the idea of the club selling him.
Wolves have some brilliant options. There is also Neto to come back into the fold.
It seems the feeling is that if Traore isn’t going to sign an extension before January, the club should feel confident to cash in before his value drops:
Will depend what he wants if he doesn’t sign a contract we have to sell him soon or else we will sell him for less closer to the end of his contract

I agree with you. And I love watching Adama.
If he can’t agree a new deal and considering we were accepting offers a few months ago we’ve got to. There is as much an art in selling at the right time and right price as there is in buying. Hello Spurs/Harry Kane.

Would be sad to see him go but if he doesn’t want to sign a new contract then they need to sell him asap

Offer him what he wants (within reason) to stay. If he won’t sign after that, I don’t think we have much choice.

He will be off in Jan. Good player to have but you just don’t let players run their contracts down it’s bad business! If he wants to go he can go.

If hes in the last year of his contract and doesnt want to sign a new one then hes gotta go, you cant lose a player of his quality for nothing. Hope he signs though because more often than not hes one of the best players on the pitch

Sell, if he doesn’t want to sign we have no choice but to try and get as much as we can before contract runs down, personally don’t think he’s worth 100k+ which is rumoured what he’s after, think we could replace with 1 or 2 better players for that kind of wage!
