Wolves transfer news: Adama Traore wanted by five clubs as contract winds down

At least five clubs are reportedly showing an interest in Wolves winger Adama Traore.

The Spaniard is into the final year of his contract at Molineux, and the current feeling is that he is unlikely to sign an extension.

Offers have been made to Traore by Wolves, but he has so far been reluctant to sign.

Traore has been with Wolves since making an £18 million move from Middlesbrough in 2018, and stands to leave after what would be five years at the club.

But things could potentially change with Julen Lopetegui now at the helm.

Lopetegui might finally be the man to get the best out of him, and Traore may have a change of heart. The new manager has said he hopes the winger will sign a new deal at Molineux.

But as things currently stand he’s set to leave and 90min have reported in recent days that at least four clubs are interested at the moment.

Tottenham Hotspur have had a long-standing interest, and are keen to sign him once his contract with Wolves expires.

Leeds United have also liked Traore for a while and are in the picture. Victor Orta was the man who actually brought Traore to Middlesbrough from Aston Villa.

And then there are two clubs from Italy showing interest – Napoli and Inter Milan.

It is also stated that he could be offered a return to Spain, in the form of Atletico Madrid.

Wolves need to make sure they keep Adama Traore beyond January

Wolves have got to make sure that they keep hold of Traore until the end of the season.

Yes there is a chance of getting a small fee for him in January.

But given how unique Traore is, there is really no point in cashing in on him.

There is much more value in keeping hold of a player who is capable of changing games and providing a spark.

And who knows, he might go up a level under Lopetegui.
