Adama Traore will leave Wolves as a free agent this summer.
That is the claim from journalist Rudy Galetti, who reports that clubs in Europe, ‘especially in Turkey’, are keen to snap him up.
Traore has been a peripheral figure for Wanderers over the past couple of months or so.
He has now not starting in the Premier League since against Nottingham Forest on April 1.
Starts under Julen Lopetegui have been hard to come by for the 27-year-old.
The head coach has often preferred the likes of Daniel Podence, Hwang hee-chan and Pedro Neto at the start of games.
He has even used Matheus Nunes out wide, which will be a frustration for natural winger Traore.
Traore’s contract expires at the end of the season and fans have been wondering if he will sign an extension. His lack of game time recently perhaps makes that quite unlikely.
And Galetti is now saying that Traore will be leaving in the summer. He says that developments are ‘expected soon’.
Previously, there have been claims that Napoli are interested in Traore.
He likely won’t be short of suitors given how unique a player he is.
It will be a shame to see Adama Traore leave Wolves for free
It really will be a shame to see Traore leave Wolves, especially as a free agent.
Just a couple of years ago, his market value was sky-high and Wanderers could perhaps have made a very tidy profit on the player.
But it was understandable the club ultimately wanted to keep hold of him. On his day he is unplayable, and the prospect of him becoming a bit more consistent was probably why a sale was never sanctioned.
Sadly Traore never really found that consistency at Molineux. But he has undoubtedly provided some amazing moments for fans of Wolves.
He will be missed as a player to watch, that is for certain. But Wolves should be fine without him moving forwards.
